Having a body that you’re confident to look at in the mirror and proud to have seen when out in public is something most people desire. And since the advent of the widely-beloved Brazilian butt lift procedure, doing so has become immensely more accessible. But as with every kind of surgery—both medical and cosmetic—these procedures take time to heal from, and BBL recovery is no exception.
BBL recovery can take up to a month to fully recover from, and as such, knowing how to approach that recovery time properly can make the entire process much easier on you. So, here are a few of the most essential tips you should know before going into your BBL recovery:
Hold Off on Exercise or Other Strenuous Activities
You’ve likely heard this tip already if you’ve ever had surgery before, but it still holds true even for BBL recovery. Physical activity can not only cause harmful and uncomfortable strain on your healing body but it can also cause your body to heal improperly, ruining the benefits of the Brazilian butt lift. Holding off on exercise will ensure that your body has enough energy to recover without diverting resources elsewhere inside of you.
Wear Comfortable and Effective Compression Garments
Though not always a necessity, wearing compression clothing can make your lighter daily activities more comfortable. These compression garments are designed to support your buttocks—as well as any areas where fat was extracted from—to minimize unnecessary strain on those areas, therefore reducing any pain or discomfort you may feel after your Brazilian butt lift.
Stay Hydrated and Nourished
Last but certainly not least, staying well-hydrated and well-nourished will give your body everything it needs to recover in a timely manner. As such, you should avoid sodas and alcoholic beverages in exchange for water. Likewise, temporarily cut out the snacks and guilty-pleasure foods to make room for meals high in lean proteins, minerals, and vitamins.
