Fat Grafting and the Brazilian Butt Lift: What You Need to Know

fat grafting; BBLIf you’re getting ready to undergo a fat grafting or Brazilian butt lift (BBL) procedure, it’s important that you know how to prepare for your surgery, as well as what you’ll need to do to support the recovery process after surgery. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, Dr. Reno and our staff are here to help you look and feel your best. Let’s take a look at what you need to know about the pre and post-operative stages of fat grafting and BBL procedures.

Before Your Procedure

Prior to your BBL or fat grafting procedure, your surgeon will have you undergo a full medical evaluation to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure. It’s important that you closely follow your surgeon’s instructions, including not smoking for at least several weeks prior to your BBL. If you need help quitting, your surgeon can provide you with resources for support. Your surgeon will also recommend staying away from certain medications and supplements, as well as maintaining a stable weight prior to surgery.

After Your Procedure

Your surgeon will provide you with specific aftercare instructions, and it’s important to reach out if you need guidance throughout the healing process. You’ll receive a prescription for pain medication, and your surgeon will direct you on how to best manage your pain. In addition to medication for pain management, your surgeon may recommend compression garments, staying hydrated, and eating plenty of nutritious food to support your body’s natural healing process.
