The Brazilian butt lift is more popular now than ever before. However, the success of the procedure depends a lot on the number of fat cells that survive after transfer. Estimates put this survival rate at about 80%. Since sitting puts a lot of pressure on the buttock sand is considered harmful to the outcome, you may be wondering, – could frequent sitting affect my Brazilian butt lift results.
How frequent sitting can affect Brazilian butt lift results
Brazilian butt lift patients are generally advised to avoid sitting for at least the first 5 days after surgery. They are also asked to sleep on their side or stomach, and not lie flat on their back. This is all in an effort to improve the survival rate of the fat cells, and not compromise the desired outcome.
The fat cells have no blood supply when they are injected into the buttocks, blood cells only begin to grow after about 5 days. The cells are therefore very weak initially, and frequent sitting will stifle the blood flow and destroy some of the cells.
Repeated sitting can also cause the fat cells to shift, and alter the shape of your buttocks. However, when the cells have reconnected to the surrounding blood vessels they will act just like the rest of the fat in the body.
In order to get optimal results from butt augmentation, you should pay close attention to the instructions of your plastic surgeon and only sit when he advises you it is okay to do so.
