Although many plastic surgery procedures saw a decline last year, buttock augmentation continued to grow in popularity. Men and women continue seeking larger, shapelier buttocks, and the procedure of choice is the Brazilian butt fill, in which fat injection is used to enlarge the buttocks, rather than a buttock implant.
The Brazilian butt fill is a less invasive procedure than many other plastic surgeries. The fat harvesting procedure is very low-impact, not the same as a full liposuction procedure, and the injection procedure, although it does result in some discomfort, does not require much in the way of postoperative restrictions. Restrictions are mainly designed to increase the survival rate of injected fat and improve the quality of permanent results.
Following your Brazilian butt fill, you will be asked to:
- Devote 2-3 days to rest and recovery
- Avoid strenuous activity for two weeks
- Limit sitting directly on the buttocks for 7-10 days
- Reduce periods of continuous sitting for up to 4 weeks
If you follow these restrictions, the quality of your results will improve, and the likelihood of retreatment will decrease.
