WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR BUTT LIFT/FAT TRANSFER SURGERY
Fat transfers are very safe and produce long lasting results; however, after your surgery you will need to account for a recovery period before returning to your regular routine:
First week – Swelling and bruising during the first week can be significant, and you may not want to see others in a social or professional setting.
Second week – Bruising will begin to subside, but you will still experience swelling.
Third week – Expect great improvement in swelling and overall appearance. You’ll begin to look more like yourself and should resume regular activities if you have not already. For areas that are still experiencing bruising or swelling, light makeup can cover up these areas in the mean time.
Fourth week – By this time the swelling will have subsided enough for you to begin to appreciate your new body shape. However, some swelling may persist for a few more weeks.
Of course, all patients are handled on a case by case basis by our professional and friendly staff, as well as your board certified surgeon. During your initial consultation, the recovery process will be discussed in detail as it pertains to your unique situation.
