When people hear about a “Brazilian butt lift,” they automatically think of a huge, cartoon-like butt with a thong bikini on the beach. For Dr. Graw, a Brazilian butt lift in Palo Alto truly redistributes curves where they belong.
Your recovery.after your Brazilian butt lift
Discomfort described as “burning pain” due to natural nerve disruption during liposuction can be expected at your sites of liposuction, along with muscle soreness.
Dr. Graw is a strong believer in the multi-modal management of post-operative pain. As such, before your operation, she will prescribe you a specialized regimen of pain medication in order for you to stay as comfortable as possible after your operation.
During the first two weeks, you will wear custom contouring foam pieces that Dr. Graw has specifically made for your body. This is to help with contouring and to decrease initial swelling. As well, you will be wearing a medical compression garment to reduce swelling, expediting your recovery. The compression garment will be worn for 4 weeks continuously, and then 4 weeks at night. On days 3-5, Dr. Graw will also have you start lymphatic massage therapy, which also tremendously helps with both contouring and swelling.
During the first six weeks, you must avoid any pressure on your buttocks, including sitting or lying on your back. You will be provided a special “booty pillow” to offload the pressure from your bottom if you need to sit or lie on your back. You should feel back to normal and able to return to light physical activities in about a week, and if you work, return after about two weeks. It is very important to remember that the results do not solely depend on the operation itself, but also on the postoperative care, which is a true partnership between you and Dr. Graw.
