Deciding on a buttock lift can be a challenge, but when you work with the right plastic surgeon, it can give you the desired look and allow you to recover with ease. Your post-op recovery should be carefully considered and planned, which is why Kearney MD is here to help you every step of the way.
What to Expect Post-Surgery
Since you’re having your buttocks (and potentially thighs) lifted, there are quite a few things that you won’t be able to do right away, including sitting and sleeping like normal. You may be given prescription pain medication, which may impact your ability to drive. Additionally, it’s normal to experience swelling, bruising, and a bit of discomfort for a few weeks while the tissue heals.
Dr. Kearney can work with you to show you how you can position your body during your normal activities so that you are not only comfortable but also get the best possible surgical outcome.
Resuming Your Activities
While you may be anxious to get back into the world and show off your new look, there are some activities that should be paused for a few weeks. This can include exercising, heavy lifting, and more. Not to worry, though – with the help of your plastic surgeon, you’ll know how long to wait for everything.
How to Get Lasting Results
With a buttocks lift, you can do quite a bit to ensure you get the sculpting and smoother look you want for years to come. Here are a few tips:
- Avoid excessive weight gain
- Drink plenty of water
- Avoid smoking
- Use moisturizer on a daily basis
Taking time to rest and allowing your body to heal properly is most important during post-op recovery. Healing can’t be rushed. If you have any questions about your specific situation, your doctor will share a few added tips based on your lifestyle so that you get lasting results.
