After Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
Immediately after surgery, your butt will be large and swollen. All the fat that has been injected will be there, and you will be very swollen from the surgery itself. This will go away over the next few weeks and your butt will decrease in size. Over the next three months, some of the fat that has not survived is lost, so it really takes three months to see the final results.
It is very important to avoid sitting on your buttocks as much as possible in the first few weeks after surgery. In order to take direct pressure off the bottom, you should sleep on your stomach or on your sides. When sitting, try to have your weight placed on your thighs, rather than your buttocks. You should be up and walking the day following your surgery. To help improve the shape of the buttocks and expedite healing and minimize the amount of fluid formation, patients are often encouraged to wear a compression garment for up to six weeks after the surgery. Dr. Jugenburg’s nurses will see you the day after your surgery and at specified intervals during the weeks that follow. This is done so that the staff can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure that you have the best results possible.
Massage after liposuction
Massage of the liposuctioned areas is crucial to ensure smooth results. We have a qualified massage therapist on site to help you with massage, improve your results, and teach you how to massage yourself at home
Monitoring for infection
Following fat injection, infection of the injected fat is a possible risk and it is important that if there are any early signs of infection, that you notify us and we are able to start strong antibiotics as soon as possible. Things to watch for are: night sweats, chills, fever, area of the butt that is hotter, redder, more tender than other areas of the butt. If any of these occur, please notify us immediately.
Booking Your Procedure
Once you have decided that you would like to undergo this surgery with Dr. Jugenburg, you will be asked to provide us with recent blood work results to ensure you are healthy and suitable to undergo this butt enhancement procedure. Our nurses will be in touch with you and will guide you through all the steps necessary before your surgery. A $3000 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your surgical date. This deposit reserves your surgical time slots and gets the ball rolling. The remainder of your fee will be due 2 weeks before the surgery.
Doing Other Procedures with a Brazilian Butt Lift
Patients often ask if they can have multiple areas liposuctioned, in addition to the areas typically used for the Brazilian Butt Lift. Additional areas can be added, at additional cost. There is a maximum, however, of how much liposuction we will do at any one time. Dr. Jugenburg aims not to do more than 4 litres of liposuction in one session, as volumes >4 Litres are associated with increased complications. Another common question we get is whether or not we can do a Tummy Tuck and a BBL at the same time. Although it is technically possible, we do not recommend this combination. After a Tummy Tuck you need to rest on your back, in a flexed position. After a Brazilian Butt Lift, we want you to lie on your stomach. Thus combining these to procedures makes the recovery extremely uncomfortable.
