When Can One Get Back to Work After a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The rising demand for Brazilian butt lifts in New York is a clear sign that women now prefer fat transfer buttock augmentation over implant surgery. Brazilian butt lift (BBL) helps women achieve their butt enhancement goals effectively and safely using their own fat. Performed by skilled plastic surgeons using local anesthesia, the procedure provides natural looking results with less downtime, side effects, and recovery time than conventional surgery.

Brazilian Butt Lift

While Brazilian butt augmentation in NYC has exploded in popularity over recent years, many prospective patients are concerned about when they can get back to work post-op. To answer this particular question, plastic surgeons would need to know what kind of work the patient does. If the work involves lot of sitting time – such as work in an office setting where you are sitting at a desk and using a computer – taking a week or two off will usually suffice. This time period would allow the re-injected fat cells to heal safely and get established in their new site. Direct sitting on butt is not advised – especially for a prolonged period – to ensure maximum fat survival – at least for the initial weeks following the treatment. As the fat cells are very fragile, any pressure on the buttocks can cause cell death. It takes time for transplanted fat cells to re-establish blood supply and that counts a lot when it comes to the final results of the buttock augmentation procedure. In case you need to sit, use a donut pillow or inflatable pillow to avoid putting pressure on the fat graft.

Patients who are in a job that requires physical exertion, heavy lifting, climbing a lot of stairs, or being in uncomfortable positions for prolonged periods, are usually advised to take 3-4 weeks off work. Once the treated area is fully healed, you can start with your job or routine exercise.

When you can get back to work also depends on if you have had any procedures in addition to the BBL. Many patients opt to combine Brazilian butt augmentation in NYC with other body contouring procedures, such as tummy tuck, breast lift, and breast augmentation. If you have an additional procedure, you might need take extra rest to speed up the recovery process of other procedures performed along with BBL.

If your job offers a work-from-home option, then healing from BBL would be much easier.

Though there is actually no set time for recovery – as each person’s body responds differently to any cosmetic surgical procedure – take your time to heal after your procedure. Most patients can start with light exercises after 4 weeks and return to full, normal activities by 6-8 weeks after surgery.

Brazilian butt surgery in NYC is a minimally invasive procedure that helps women achieve their buttock contouring goals with little downtime. It is considered a better alternative to implants as it uses the patient’s own fat to add volume to the buttocks. BBL can address buttocks that are flat, small, asymmetrical, or saggy. No amount of rigorous exercise can provide results similar to as BBL. Further, the procedure provides dual benefits: in addition to enhancing the buttocks, it improves the contour of the sites from where fat is extracted, such as the flanks, abdomen, thighs and waist.

Brazilian butt lift under local anesthesia (BBLULA) is a safer alternative to the traditional fat transfer buttock augmentation procedure that uses general anesthesia. BBLULA is a relatively short procedure that allows patients to remain awake throughout the procedure, heal faster, and get back quickly to their normal routine.

However if you don’t want an invasive or minimally invasive procedure, but need to tone up your buttocks then can consider a new option: a non-invasive butt lift. The new non-Invasive butt lift is performed using InMode Evolve Tone, a next generation body contouring modality. The procedure does not require anesthesia, liposuction or downtime. It utilizes radiofrequency energy for fat reduction, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening, and provides great results. It will not give you the dramatic results similar to fat transfer or implants, but it can provide unique lifting and tightening of the buttock area.

A healthy lifestyle and proper weight management are essential to maintain your BBL results. Doing butt workouts after the procedure six to eight weeks after the procedure will strengthen the gluteal muscles and increase your metabolic rate. However, any kind of exercise should be resumed only after a discussion with your surgeon.
