After Your Surgery
After surgery, you will put on a compression garment to provide support, which should not be taken off for about 2-4 days following surgery.
The surgery stretches the tissues, and this can be very painful. This is particularly the case when the implants are placed under or below the muscle. You will experience the greatest pain within the first 48 hours, but improves with each day and is fairly alleviated by pain medications. Despite the initial soreness, most women claim that they are highly pleased with the outcomes of the surgery.
Expect to stay in bed for 24 hours following surgery.
As You Recover
Because your buttocks are part of the body that is needed for walking, sitting, and some other movements, you are likely to feel more pain during the recovery period compared to other popular cosmetic surgery procedures and the healing time is generally longer.
Pain medications usually are prescribed to deal with the discomfort, but, after about 5 - 7 days it will be easier to move and start walking and sitting a lot more at ease.
You will discover that there is not much swelling and bruising after buttock augmentation so the outcome could be observed very soon after surgery.
- Rest is essential to the recovery process, so do so whenever possible following your procedure. Consume a good amount of fluids, and ensure that you take the doctor's prescribed medications.
- Very likely, it will be possible to resume gentle, quite work within a couple of days to weeks following butt implants surgery. You must still stay away from physical exertion for a number of weeks, subject to the advice of your doctor.
- The stitches will come out within a week to ten days, but swelling may persist, steadily subsiding over several weeks. As the swelling decreases, the results will become a lot more obvious.
You will likely be able to resume exercise and regular physical activities within a month or two, when the pain has subsided. Healing differs from patient to patient and depends on the surgical technique; implant type, and placement site that is used, on top of the degree of activities in your daily routine.
