6 weeks post op from my BBL surgery with Dr. Robert...
After the recovery period, the results become apparent.A new blood supply is needed to supply the healthiest fat cells that have been reabsorbed by the body.The BBL results are permanent after this process is complete.
If you gain or lose weight, the size of your buttocks will change.The fat cells in your buttocks will get bigger if you gain weight.Your fat volume will decrease if you lose weight.
After a buttock augmentation surgery, some of the fat cells that are transferred to the buttocks are destroyed by the body.After a few months of recovery, the healthiest fat cells become permanent.
The fat cells that are removed from the abdomen and transferred to the buttocks behave the same.
After the BBL, abdominal fat cells that were transferred to your buttocks will gain or lose weight the same way they did before.A positive transformation in healthy patients can be caused by a BBL.
Brazilian Butt Lift surgery results can last a long time.The fat is permanent once it has been revascularized.
It is important to remember that the fat cells that are transferred will behave in the same way as the rest of your body.BBL fat cells will be susceptible to weight changes.Patients need to maintain their weight and not lose it after the procedure to increase the odds of long- lasting results.
Don't sit on your butt.Put no pressure on the areas.All day, wear your compression garment.A healthy lifestyle is maintained.
The number of fat cells that will survive transplantation is not certain, but it is normal for some of the cells to die and be absorbed by the body.
After patients recover, between 50 and 80% of fat cells are transferred back to them, according to multiple surgeons and the ISAPS.
Doctors over-inject fat cells to compensate for projected fat cell loss and still achieve desired results.
The compression garment should be worn 24 hours a day for the first 2 to 3 weeks.It should only be taken out for washing or showering.
Patients will need to wear the compression garment for 12 hours per day after the first 2 to 3 weeks.
To be effective, the garment should fit snug and not be too tight, as this will cause a lot of pressure on the buttocks.If you feel uncomfortable, inspect your skin.The compression garment shouldn't prevent you from sleeping.If you wear a brace around your ankle or knee, the tightness of your garment should feel like a bandage wrap.Incisions or puckering of the skin should not be caused by the garment.
For the first 3 weeks, wear your compression garment all day.Follow your surgeon's advice is the most important thing.
Different techniques are used by doctors to perform BBL surgery.Doctors recommend avoiding sitting for the first 2 weeks after surgery.During the first 6 weeks of recovery, others recommend sitting with a bbl cushion.
Newly injected fat cells don't have a blood supply.It is easy for a fat graft to get damaged if it is applied for long periods of time.The first 2 to 6 weeks after surgery are critical for fat cell transplants.Sitting on the fat cells will cause them to die.
During the first 6 weeks of the BBL recovery time, the body will produce a blood supply around the new fat cells.It is safe to sit without the bbl cushion once the blood supply is established.
If you must sit during the first few weeks, do it only when absolutely necessary and always use the BBL pillow.Lay on your stomach or legs to rest.
Most patients will sit.When 16 Brazilian butt lift specialists were surveyed, 8 said it was okay to sit after 2 weeks, 6 said sitting was ok after 6 weeks and 2 recommended that the patient wait for 8 weeks before sitting.
6 weeks can be considered a safe period of time to avoid sitting after BBL surgery.Patients can discuss the issue of sitting with their plastic surgeon.
If you can, try to reduce your sitting time.During the critical 2 to 6 week recovery period, always use the BBL cushion.Try not to sit for more than 5 minutes during the first 2 weeks of recovery.Sitting with standing up and stretching stimulates blood circulation.
Sitting with your butt in the air is called Elevated Butt Sitting.You can either use the BBL pillow or use an elevated cushion underneath your thighs.
If you want to sit in a chair with legs on either side, turn the chair around and place them on the other side.Don't put your butt in the chair seat.The back of the chair is where you can rest your arms.
It is a delicate and unpredictable procedure.Patients may not see the expected results if they don't follow their surgeon's recommendations.
You should see the results after your procedure.At this time, your buttocks will be bigger.As the body heals, your buttocks may vary in size, which is normal and to be expected.
At the beginning of your recovery period, not all of the fat cells you see will survive.The results will be very close to what the end result will look like after the first 6 weeks of recovery.
strenuous activities should be avoided after surgery.Any type of bouncing can damage fat cells.Fast-paced walking can be performed after the first month of recovery.
After the fat cells are established, the patient can resume more vigorous activities such as jogging or running.To ensure good outcomes from the procedure, it is important to listen to all of the surgeon's instructions.
Depending on their response during recovery, most patients can return to their normal daily routine within 6 to 8 weeks.
Some doctors recommend that patients wait at least 24 to 48 hours after the procedure to shower.Baths and very hot water should not be used.
BBL patients should avoid the beach, pools, baths, and hot tub until the doctor approves them.It's important to avoid infections and weakens of the incisions.
It is important to distinguish between massages for the buttocks and the lipo areas.
Doctors don't agree on whether post- surgical massages are beneficial or not.Some surgeons don't see post-liposuction massage as necessary while others recommend massage to promote lymphatic drainage and aid in the removal and smoothing of bumps.
After your procedure, your doctor may recommend a massage.This type of massage is only meant to be used in the areas that were treated with Liposuction.Post body massage can aid in the healing process, improve skin smoothness, prevent or correct the formation of lumps, and help drain excess fluids from the treated areas.
It is not recommended to massage the buttocks because it can cause pressure on the fat cells.Most doctors agree that massaging the newly transplanted fat cells can disrupt the formation of a blood supply and cause damages that negatively impact the final result.
Prepare for the recovery of your butt.You will need all the essential gear during your recovery period.
The Brazilian Buttock Lift/ Micro Fat-Grafting procedure is a very technically advanced plastic surgery procedure that should only be performed by an experienced, Board Certified plastic surgeon.The results are amazing when done well.
