When it comes to popular plastic surgery procedures, the Brazilian butt lift is all the rage. This relatively new treatment uses your body’s own fat to lift and volumize the buttocks, leading to a curvier derriere. One of the biggest benefits of the Brazilian butt lift is that it doesn’t require the use of silicone implants, meaning patients won’t have to worry about the risk of allergic reactions.
Because the Brazilian butt lift involves fat harvesting via liposuction and injection, it leaves many patients wondering: “How long is recovery from a Brazilian butt lift?”
No two Brazilian butt lift recoveries are the same, as patients have different healing times. However, the average recovery time from a Brazilian butt lift is about six to eight weeks, at which point you may be able to return to your normal activities. However, it’s best to follow the advice and guidelines of your plastic surgeon, as they’ll be able to look at your progress and help you understand when you’re fully cleared from your procedure.
While each recovery plan will be different, there are a number of things you can do to ensure your Brazilian butt lift recovery is a healthy one. Take a look at how to recover from a Brazilian butt lift:
Avoid laying or sitting on your backside for the first eight weeks after your Brazilian butt lift. This allows time for your fat to naturally settle into its new shape without being disrupted. Sleep on your stomach and if you have an office job, work at a standing desk, if possible.
Wear a compression garment for the first few weeks of your recovery, or as long as your plastic surgeon recommends. This garment can aid in helping your injected fat settle into its position.
Avoid bouncing or doing any strenuous activities within the first four weeks after your Brazilian butt lift procedure. You should wait to be cleared for exercise by your plastic surgeon before heading back to the gym.

My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
