The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves the transfer of fat into your buttocks to achieve a rounder, fuller look. A lot of people have had a BBL in Turkey and gotten great results. Generally performed under general anaesthesia, this procedure would require your surgeon to use liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body such as your stomach, hips, and thighs and transfer this fat to your body after purifying it. Both the process of liposuction and fat transfer require small incisions as pimples.
Today, the Bbl in Turkey has become a huge trend, with so many celebrities taking this route and more women following the trend as they see their favourite celebrities undergoing the procedure. But after the procedure that should come with the glamour of having the ideal backside, there’s recovery to deal with, and patients must give due attention to the recovery process by making some lifestyle changes and keeping several tips in mind. Here are some recovery tips to pay attention to if you have just had a Brazilian Butt Lift:
Your body heavily depends on water in any reparation process it has to undergo, and the BBL recovery process is not any different. Water will help to clear out waste as well as help nutrients to move around the body. It is crucial to get enough water into your body every day to support the body in its reparation efforts.
2. Avoid Alcohol
All surgical procedures typically require to stay off alcohol at least two weeks before and two weeks after. Avoiding alcohol will help you to minimize swelling. Alcohol usually widens your blood vessels, and this makes your body easily prone to swelling. Also, alcohol has blood-thinning effects and can make the blood platelets less active, reducing their ability to clot. The result of this would be bleeding.
Also, alcohol can cause drug interactions as antibiotics will normally be prescribed after your surgery to reduce the risk of infections. Alcohol can also cause dehydration, which will result in symptoms like dizziness, headache, and dry skin. These symptoms can interfere with your recovery process.
3. Do not Smoke
If you have just had a Brazilian Butt Lift and you smoke, you must stay off smoking for a good while as smoking could inhibit circulation and negatively affect the entire outcome of your surgery. Besides, smoking before or after your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery can put you at serious risk of developing complications, which would include problems with wound healing as well as infections. It is recommended that patients quit smoking at least six weeks after the BBL surgery and six weeks after the surgery.
4. Eat Healthy and Follow your Diet
After your Brazilian Butt Lift, you must be eating a well-balanced diet and staying hydrated to enable the body to repair itself. Eating up to 100 grams of protein each day will help to promote quick healing.
5. Try to Walk as Much as You Can
Walking as often as possible after your BBL is vital because it helps to improve circulation, enabling quick recovery. It also helps to prevent blood clots and DVT.
6. Try Not to Sit and Use BBL Pillow
Try to avoid sitting 2-6 after your surgery. As often as you need to, use the special BBL pillow to prevent pressure from damaging the fat cells.
7. Use Your Compression Garment
Wearing a compression garment 24 hours a day for up to 6 weeks is very important for the healing process. Make sure it fits snugly but not too tightly and only take it out to wash or to take a shower.
8. Be Patient for The Great Result
