The quick guide to Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) recovery time
If you’re considering undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), you might be wondering how much time to set aside after the surgery before you can get back into the swing of your daily routine.
Dr Tavakoli's team has prepared this quick guide to give you an idea of what to expect.
Immediately after Brazilian Butt Lift surgery:
Wear loose, comfortable clothing - no tight jeans! It’s also important that you don’t stay in bed or remain stationary for longer than 6 hours at a time - gentle mobility.
7 to 10 days:
For the first 7 to 10 days after Brazilian butt lift surgery you need to avoid applying pressure to your buttocks and lie on your side or stomach.
In the second week after Brazilian butt lift surgery you can resume light walking and household duties.
Weeks 3 to 6:
In weeks 3 to 6 after Brazilian butt lift surgery you can resume walking on a treadmill and light spinning on an exercise bike.
After 6 weeks you can usually start exercising your lower body again - think body squats, lunges, and light cardio.
