What is the Post-Op BBL Recovery Process Like?
Brazilian butt lift recovery with awake liposuction is typically more benign and very short compared to traditional liposuction. Here are some popular post-op BBL recovery FAQs:
When Can I Return to Work After a BBL?
In most cases, during the post-op BBL period, you can return to work in roughly 4 to 5 days. Dr. Torres does not put drains in you, and he recommends lymphatic drainage massages to begin within the first 3 to 6 days. We refer our clients to certified specialists who are experts in only post-operative massage and healing. This allows our clients to get back to work, back to their busy lives, and, equally importantly, back into a bikini as quickly as possible.
How do I wear faja and foams after a BBL?
It’s easier to explain the process of faja and foams with a visual aid, so we’ve made a video to help:
How Can I Minimize BBL Post-Op Scars?
In order to minimize BBL scars, Dr. Torres places a single suture in each incision to accelerate the healing. BBL wound care is easy. We ask that you keep Aquaphor on each incision site with a bandaid until completely healed within around 1-2 months. We consider all of our patients as walking advertisements, so Dr. Torres gives it his all to make each and every patient look their very best. He does this by standing each client up during the procedure to make sure everything is always looking great, especially with gravity in effect, so there’s no guesswork. This is something that cannot be done under general anesthesia.
What Should I Wear After a BBL?
We recommend that you wear your compression garment for a minimum of 4-6 weeks full time, then part-time for 1-4 weeks. Your body will take the shape of your garment. If you get a BBL done, you can sit on day one but it must be with a BBL thigh pillow only. Dr. Torres does not want you to sit without a thigh pillow for one to two full months depending on your healing progress.
Can I Smoke After a BBL?
Absolutely NO smoking or vaping after your BBL procedure because it will decrease the amount of fat that survives. There is nothing worse than getting an amazing booty only to watch it fade away over time due to smoking!
What’s the Best Diet After a BBL?
After the surgery we recommend a clean diet focusing on fresh and nutritious ingredients, with high protein and healthy fats such as avocados and nuts. You want to maintain steady calorie intake and frequently snack on healthy foods.
When Can I Exercise After a BBL?
We ask that you go for a one mile walk the very next day after surgery. About 4 weeks after the surgery you can begin to exercise and gradually increase the intensity, using elliptical and stairmaster type of machines, but we ask that you refrain from high impact activities, such as jogging, for 2 to 3 months. Here are some ideas for a BBL post-op workout:
