Brazilian Butt Lift: How to Best Recover for Optimal Results

Brazilian Butt LiftBrazilian Butt Lifts are great for boosting confidence and getting an amazing figure. However, it’s important to know the best way to recover after the procedure. So let’s take a look at what a Brazilian Butt Lift is and how to best recover from the operation.

What Is a BBL?

A BBL, Brazilian Butt Lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to increase the buttock’s shape, size, and appearance. The procedure primarily uses liposuction to reduce fat in certain areas and fat injections to increase it in others. This is to sculpt the desired shape and create a firm lift. Fat is taken from your own body and is then cleaned of blood, oils, and water. Then it can be reused and placed in the buttocks appropriately.


While this procedure is a fantastic tool for getting the desired buttocks shape, it is a surgical procedure that requires healing and recovery. Let’s take a look at some essential BBL recovery tips.

Avoid Sitting Down

While this may seem difficult, it’s incredibly important to avoid sitting down on your buttocks during the early stages of healing. Just like with any surgical procedure, a BBL requires incisions which are basically just very controlled wounds. These wounds cannot heal properly if pressure and stress are being applied to them.

So think about your day, be mindful of your position, and find ways to avoid sitting. This includes driving, so make sure someone else can drive you places while you recover, as you’ll have to lay in the back of the car.

Eat Healthy

Being mindful of your food and active lifestyle is essential during BBL recovery. Eat nutritious, healthy, and filling foods to provide your body with what it needs to recover. The last thing you want to do is deprive yourself of key nutrients during healing

Keep it Active

While you may not want to be active while you recover, doing light workouts and cardio is great for recovery. Staying active with things like walks is an amazing way to stimulate blood circulation and promote healing. However, be careful not to do anything too strenuous, like heavy strength training. Also, avoid any exercise where you need to sit.
