Minimizing Discomfort During Butt Lift Recovery

Many patients who are seeking a cosmetic enhancement through a butt lift or another body procedure may be reticent to schedule a surgery because they are unsure about the recovery process. Dr. Matt Chhatre advises patients to follow all post-operative instructions in order to minimize and discomfort during your butt lift recovery. Our Kansas City, MO, practice has been helping patients achieve beautiful results through cosmetic surgeries for over 20 years, and we will be happy to answer any of your questions to alleviate your concerns.

The Day of Your Procedure

Immediately following your procedure, you can expect some swelling and discomfort. You will be allowed to return home after your surgery to rest and recover. Dr. Chhatre recommends that patients wear compression garments to help reduce swelling and inflammation following butt lift surgery. He will provide you with complete instructions for your care, including comfortable positions to sit or sleep in, and tips to reduce the appearance of scarring. It is important to make arrangements to have a friend or family member stay with you for the first night following your procedure.

The First Six Weeks

You will continue to wear compression garments during the first six weeks. Dr. Chhatre recommends that you take regular walks around your home to reduce the risk of blood clots. You will want to avoid putting pressure on the surgical area until you have fully healed. Some redness, swelling, and discomfort can be expected during your recovery. It is important to avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting for the first six weeks after your procedure. Having the help of a friend or family member can be very important during your recovery.

Work and Exercise

Many patients are able to return to work in two or three weeks, but your body will continue its recovery for a few months. If you have a physically strenuous job, Dr. Chhatre will advise you on when you may safely return to work. After three weeks of post-operative recovery, you can resume light exercise, but you should still avoid any activities that will cause your heart rate to increase dramatically. After six weeks you may resume cardiovascular workouts and sports participation.

Scarring and Results

Dr. Chhatre uses advanced techniques combined with his years of experience and skill to perform all cosmetic procedures. This approach minimizes the appearance of any scarring and reduces the risk of post-operative complications. Dr. Chhatre will make the incisions where they will be concealed by the natural crease below the buttocks.

By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, your results can last for many years.
