Los Angeles Butt Lift – What is recovery from a Butt Lift in Los Angeles?

Uplifted, rounded backside in Beverly Hills, Dennis Dass, MD
The Brazilian Butt lift is a specialized surgery to reshape the buttock area and contour the rest of the body. Liposuction will be performed to reduce the fat on the stomach, love handles, and back. Dr. Dass uses liposuction to sculpt the body. During the same surgery, your fat is then injected into the buttock to reshape the buttock into a more desirable shape and to lift the butt. This technique is great for adding volume to a butt that has gone flat after weight loss or aging. It will also raise a buttock that has fallen over time.

What to expect - Recovering from the Brazilian butt lift

You will be sore in the areas of liposuction for about a week and the buttock will be sore for about one to two weeks. Bruising in the areas of liposuction lasts for about one to two weeks. Most patients require prescription pain medications for only about three or four days. Most people take about one or two weeks of vacation to recover from surgery.

A few tips for a quick & healthy recovery

It's important to follow instructions provided by Dr. Dass, including:
  • Wear a compression garment in the liposuctioned areas for 6 weeks.
  • Take care to not place pressure on the buttock for the first six weeks after surgery.
  • It is best to sleep while lying down on your belly.
  • You will be instructed on how to properly sit down to avoid placing pressure on the buttock.
  • To avoid complications, don't get too active soon after surgery.
  • Abstain from aerobic activity for about four weeks.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet after surgery that is high in protein, fruits, and vegetables.
  • Drink plenty of water.
It is important to note that the best surgical results are achieved in patients that strictly adhere to the post-op instructions, i.e. it is important that you take care of yourself after surgery. Your results are only as good as your BBL recovery in the Beverly Hills area and the skills of your surgeon.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
