QUESTION

Would Frequent Sitting Affect results of a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?

My job consists of sitting down for 7 hrs, 5 days a week. If I were to get a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, would sitting on my rear end cause my butt to flatten or become oddly shaped?

ANSWER

Brazilian Butt Lifts and sitting

Pressure on the buttocks immediately after Brazilian Butt lifts can cause a decrease in the fat survival. The key is allowing enough time for the fat to revascularize, which will insure survival. Once the fat has revascularized, there is less concern about pressure on the buttocks (sitting a lot). It is recommended that patients do not sit for more than 1 hour at a time for the first one month if they can avoid it. Find a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options. I hope this helps.
