If you’re thinking about undergoing butt augmentation, you’re sure to have a lot of questions about the procedure, in order to prepare properly for surgery. It’s particularly important to find out how long the recovery from a butt augmentation is likely to be, so that you can get the required time off work, and make preparations for aftercare.
Why Butt augmentation
A butt augmentation is done to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks. Traditional butt augmentation is performed with the use of solid silicone implants, but the Brazilian butt lift, which uses the patient’s own fat, has now become a popular alternative. Butt augmentation is a procedure that is frequently done by women with very small buttocks that would like to have a shapelier derriere and improve their overall shape.
How long is recovery from a butt augmentation?
The recovery time from butt augmentation is not the same for every patient, and downtime also varies depending on the extent of the procedure.
Recovery time after butt augmentation averages about 2 weeks, as most patients are able to return to a desk job by that time. However, more time will be needed if the patient has a very strenuous job. Exercise is usually restricted for up to 6 weeks (learn more).
Brazilian butt lift patients are required to minimize the amount of time spent sitting directly on the buttocks for at least 3 weeks.
Compression garments are worn after butt augmentation for about 2-3 weeks, as they help the skin heal and reshape the buttocks.
