Every procedure is different. Our experienced cosmetic surgeons will custom-tailor your surgery to help give you the body of your dreams! We’d love to have you in for an initial consultation. You can use this time to ask any questions you may have, talk about your desired outcomes, and determine if BBL is right for you. The doctor will explain the procedure in detail while taking the time to understand your medical history, health profile, and lifestyle.
You may schedule your Awake Brazilian Butt Lift immediately following your consultation if the doctor gives you the green light. Our staff will work with you to choose a surgery date that best fits your timeline.
Recovery from Awake BBL
You should love what you see when you look in the mirror. After you recover from your surgery, you’ll have the confidence to show off your new contoured figure. Like any other plastic surgery procedure, there will be somewhat of a recovery time. However, recovering from an Awake Brazilian Butt Lift is generally easy. Awake BBL is an outpatient surgery, meaning you’ll return home the same day. You won’t feel groggy or drowsy as you would with full anesthesia; however, driving is prohibited following your procedure. A friend or family member can pick you up from our Atlanta office shortly after the surgery is complete. After your surgery, you’ll be given compression garments that you must wear 24/7 for the following days. It’s important to rest as much as possible to help your body recover faster.
Most Awake BBL patients can return to work within five to seven days after the procedure. Please keep in mind you will feel soreness in your bottom and the liposuction sites. Bruising, swelling, and tenderness are completely normal and should subside within a few days. Your doctor may prescribe prescription pain medication to ensure you stay comfortable throughout the recovery period. Usually, Awake BBL patients can resume regular exercise within six to eight weeks.
Can I sit down after my BBL?
You can sit for brief periods immediately following your procedure. Don’t sit for too long in any one position. We suggest buying a soft pillow to keep your derriere comfortable during your recovery time.
When can I take a shower?
You may shower the day after your surgery.
Are lymphatic massages necessary?
Lymphatic massages can aid during your recovery. We don’t suggest massaging the buttocks; however, we invite our patients back to receive a lymphatic massage in their liposuctioned areas. Expect to have around five to ten rounds of massages.
What results can I expect?
Awake Brazilian Butt Lifts help give you a more natural-looking fuller bottom. By sculpting the body using lipo and fat transfers, you’ll achieve the look of a more voluminous behind. We specialize in natural results here – your new butt will look and feel like you were born with it!
Can the fat die off?
We use a state-of-the-art BBL surgery technique to help ensure our patients get their desired outcomes. We typically get 60-70% survival rates of our transferred fat. The body will naturally reabsorb some of the transferred fat. Don’t worry; our cosmetic surgeons know how to work with your body shape to get the results you want.
