BBL Recovery Week by Week
In the first week after the procedure, you can expect to experience some swelling, discomfort, and bruising in the treated area.
You will likely be prescribed pain medication to help manage any discomfort. You should also be wearing a compression garment to help reduce swelling and support the treated area.
It is important to avoid sitting directly on the buttocks for the first few weeks after the procedure to allow the incision sites to heal.
By the second week, the swelling and bruising should start to subside. You may still experience some discomfort, but it should be decreasing.
You should continue to wear the compression garment as directed and avoid strenuous activity.
By the third week, the swelling and bruising should be almost completely resolved, and you should be feeling more comfortable. You may be able to start returning to your normal activities, although it is still important to avoid strenuous activity and follow your surgeon’s instructions.
Week 4 and Beyond
As you continue to recover, you may notice that the shape of your buttocks starts to change as the transferred fat settles into its new location. It is important to be patient, as it can take several months for the final results of the BBL procedure to become visible. It is also important to continue following your surgeon’s instructions for post-operative care and to report any concerns.
