Key BBL Recovery Tips
- Have patience. Recovering from plastic surgery is not an easy feat.
- Abstain from smoking and drinking for a month before and after surgery as it impedes the healing process.
- Plan to be off work for about two weeks to recover and rest.
- Avoid putting pressure on your buttocks. Do not sit on your butt or sleep on your back for at least 6 weeks, following your surgeon’s instructions on how to do that.
- Keep your incisions clean and dry to prevent the risk of infection.
- To help with post-op fluid retention and swelling, a compression garment (faja) should be worn for at least 8 weeks after surgery.
- Take your medications (pain killers and antibiotics) as directed to subdue any pain and avoid infection.
- Stay hydrated with plenty of water and consume a healthy diet.
- Fight the effects of drying skin after surgery by moisturizing your skin regularly to keep it hydrated.
- Only wear loose and comfortable fitting bottoms made of breathable fabrics. No jeans.
- Abstain from using herbal supplements and blood thinners since they can increase the risk of bruising.
- Avoid hot tubs, pools, baths and saunas for at least 4 weeks to prevent infection.
- Stretch your legs regularly and walk at least 10 minutes a day to prevent blood clots.
- Make sure to keep your follow-up appointments.
Following these steps will help your recovery tremendously and ensure you get the best results possible from your surgery.
