You should be up and walking around within a few days of surgery. Patients usually return to work in about a week after Brazilian butt lift, but for best results, you should not sit directly on your butt for eight weeks or longer after surgery.
Butt lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the buttocks. It can be done as part of a tummy tuck (belt lipectomy) or lower body lift to shape the hips, groin, thighs, and abdomen. A hip lift alone does not add volume to the hips. Sometimes, however, a hip lift is combined with an augmentation procedure to change the shape or size of the hips with implants or fat grafts. During the classical butt lift, excess skin and fat are removed from the buttock. The remaining skin is then repositioned for a more toned look. During the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, fat is aspirated from the abdomen with liposuction cannulas and injected into the hip area to enlarge and lift the hip.
