Its recommended to have lymphatic drainage massage in donor areas such as lipo. because it can improve skin smoothness, prevent or correct the formation of lumps, and stimulate the blood flow to help drain excess fluids from the treated areas.Massages on the buttocks are not recommended because massage can cause pressure on the freshly transplanted fat cells. massaging the newly transplanted fat cells can disrupt the formation of a blood supply and cause damages that negatively impact the final result. Massages on the BBL should be avoided the first 6 weeks of post op.
BBL recovery Tips
Walk. Stretch your legs. You need to keep moving to decreasing the risk of developing blood clots after surgery.
Wear your compression garment at all times. Remove it only to take a shower. Then, put it back on.
For the first 2 to 3 weeks, rest only on your stomach or on your legs. After that, you can use the BBL Pillow to sit.
What you should NOT DO after a BBL.
Do not sit on your buttocks for the first weeks of recovery (2 to 8 weeks, depending on your doctor’s recommendation). Use the BBL Pillow to sit on the back of your thighs.
Do not put any stress on the area of the buttocks that received fat transplants.
Do not smoke. Avoid smoking for at least 2 months after the procedure. The use of cigarettes and drugs can seriously increase the risk of developing complications.
Do not wear a compression garment that’s too tight. The garment should fit snugly, but it should not cover your buttocks.
