I had fat transferred to my butt 8 weeks ago. I'm still very sensitive, just leaning on a wall hurts. Will it affect the final result of the surgery if I sit or will it just hurt? Is lying down on my back just as harmful? Thanks much
It’s unusual to have a lot of pain eight weeks out after a Brazilian butt lift. It might be a good idea to be seen by a doctor in person to make sure that your pain is due to normal healing or something else.
My doctor saw me yesterday and said there was nothing abnormal. He said I was able to do anything I wanted now. But I have the feeling that I should wait a bit longer to seat normally or to lay on my back because of the high sensitivity that I have. Would it be wise to wait so that the final outcome of the surgery is as expected? Thanks much for your help.
Hello and thank you for your excellent question. I typically have patients on "buttock rest" (no sitting for more than 15 minutes at a time, once per hour) for only 4 weeks postop. If you are having significant pain, or have questions, I suggest that you follow up directly with your surgeon. If you have any questions, call our office for assistance. Good luck!
The thing is that about 4 weeks ago I forgot for an instant that I couldn't sit and attempted to sit on a very low stool. When I was going down to sit, I remembered! But my right glute had already hit the border of the stool. Since then, I have some pain on my right glute. My doctor said it will go away. Is there anything that you recommend doing to heal faster? Thanks much.
