Is It Important To Massage After Brazilian Butt Lift?

Is massages important or necessary after a brazilian butt lift? How important are they?

ANSWER

Massage after brazilian butt lift

Thanks for your question! In our San Francisco area practice we perform this operation frequently. Massage of the areas that have been liposuctioned can be helpful 2 to 3 times a day for the first week but after that the compression garment is likely doing you more good than any massage. The buttocks should not be massaged. The transplanted fat cells need to establish a blood supply and vigorous massage can decrease fat survivability. I hope this helps.
