Achieving a curvaceous posterior has never been easier thanks to the Brazilian Butt Lift. Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Neal Goldberg, offers this exciting procedure to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks in the most natural looking way possible. It’s important to note, the recovery period following Brazilian Butt Lift is an essential step in obtaining an optimal outcome. One of the most important instructions during the healing process is to avoid prolonged sitting. If you’re considering this treatment, understanding how sitting can affect the final shape may help you determine if Brazilian Butt Lift is right for you.
Dr. Goldberg uses no foreign objects or implants to create the lower body shape you desire. Instead, he uses fat grafting, a technique that utilizes your own fatty tissue to add volume and improve contour. The fat will be harvested from one or more selected areas of the body, minimally processed, and then placed in a series of targeted locations in your buttock region. The fatty tissue is very delicate when it is first administered. Pressure from the weight of your body when sitting can break up the fat cells and lead to changes in shape or loss of volume. We recommend that you avoid seated positions for more than a few hours, and you should also try to refrain from sleeping on your back for the first several weeks after the procedure. After this initial period, the results should have taken, and you can return to normal activity.
Every individual heals at a different rate, so Dr. Goldberg may advise you to avoid sitting for a shorter or longer period. He will discuss the details of your unique treatment plan during your initial consultation.
