When Can I Sit After BBL?

If you have recently undergone a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure, you may be wondering when you can sit down again.

The answer to this question depends on several factors, including the type of BBL procedure you had, the extent of the surgery, and your individual recovery process.

Typically, after a BBL procedure, you will be asked to avoid sitting for the first few weeks following the surgery, a minimum of 2 – 4 weeks.

This is because sitting puts pressure on the buttocks and can disrupt the fat grafting process. When the fat cells are transplanted to the buttocks during a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, they need time to settle into their new location and establish a blood supply.

Follow Your Surgeon’s Instructions

During this time, it is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions and avoid sitting as much as possible. This may mean lying on your stomach or standing for the first few days after the surgery. Your surgeon may also recommend using a special cushion or pillow to help alleviate pressure on the buttocks when you do need to sit.

Avoid Sitting For Long Periods of Time

After the first few weeks, you will likely be able to sit for short periods of time. However, it is important to avoid sitting for long periods of time for several more weeks. This will allow the fat cells to fully integrate into the tissue and provide the desired results.

It is also important to avoid sitting on hard surfaces or engaging in activities that put pressure on the buttocks. This can include activities like biking or horseback riding. Your surgeon will provide specific instructions on when and how you can gradually return to these activities.

Overall, the amount of time it takes to fully recover from a BBL procedure and be able to sit without restrictions will vary depending on the individual. It is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions and take care of yourself during the recovery process to ensure the best possible results.

Conclusion

After undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure, it is important to avoid sitting for the first few weeks to allow the fat cells to settle into their new location and establish a blood supply. After a few weeks, it is possible to sit for short periods of time.
