Simple Preparation Can Improve Your Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Undergoing Brazilian butt lift surgery has helped many patients achieve fuller and curvier buttocks. To ensure that the treatment is a success, it is important to follow aftercare instructions and understand what to expect during your recovery. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg is one of the most recognized cosmetic surgeons in the world, and can discuss your Brazilian butt lift recovery period with you at his Long Island, New York-area practice.
The Day of Surgery
Brazilian butt lift surgery is an intensive procedure that should be taken just as seriously as any other major surgery. Properly preparing for the time both before and after the procedure is essential for your own health and the success of your treatment. The surgery usually takes one to three hours, after which you may need to rest while the sedative fades and Dr. Greenberg ensures your condition is stable.
Once you are approved for release, you will need to have someone drive you home. You may be groggy or disoriented following your surgery, and it is recommended that you rest or sleep for the remainder of the day. Dr. Greenberg will provide instructions for aftercare and medication to manage any discomfort, if needed.
Your Recovery Period
You will need plenty of rest during your recovery period, and should make necessary preparations to avoid as much activity as possible. Although you should stand and walk around the house to encourage circulation, cleaning and preparing easy meals before the surgery can help immensely in this area. You will also be instructed on how to properly care for your surgical site, which may include changing bandages, cleaning the site, and wearing compression garments.
Properly preparing yourself for your Brazilian butt lift recovery can ensure your health, a positive outlook, and impressive results from your procedure.
Some bruising and swelling will occur after surgery, but any signs of infection or other complications should be reported to Dr. Greenberg immediately. You will need to avoid sitting for long periods during this time, and a small pillow or towel placed between the thighs can minimize pressure on the treatment area. Bruising, swelling, or other side effect does should fade within the days and weeks following your procedure.
Returning to Normal Activities
Patients should plan on spending at least one week avoiding or minimizing activities outside the house. At this point, you may be able to return to work, but should not engage in strenuous activities such as going to the gym. Most patients are able to resume normal activities in as little as two to three weeks following surgery. Dr. Greenberg will be available throughout every step of your treatment, and will provide more specific instructions for you based on the progress you are making.
