Compared to a traditional butt lift, this method of butt augmentation has an easier recovery period. However, it is crucial that you avoid sitting or laying directly on your buttocks for at least two weeks after the procedure because pressure can kill the newly transplanted fat cells.
After a few weeks, your surgeon will clear you to sit again. You will need to use a donut seat or place a pillow under your thighs to minimize the pressure on the buttocks. Generally, patients are able to resume normal sitting after about eight weeks.
Most patients can resume light activity within a week and return to work after about 10 to 14 days. Avoid exercising for at least six to eight weeks.
