Will I Be Able to Walk After a BHeart® Brazilian Butt Lift?

By: Dr. Brian Hwang


If you're considering a BHeart® Brazilian butt lift, one of the questions that may be on your mind is whether you'll be able to walk normally after the procedure. This innovative body contouring surgery, performed by board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Brian Hwang in West Hills, CA, involves a fat transfer to the buttocks to enhance its shape and size. While the recovery process varies for each individual, let's explore what to expect after a Brazilian butt lift and how it may affect your ability to walk.

The initial recovery period after BBL

After the BHeart® Brazilian butt lift, the initial recovery period is crucial for proper healing and achieving optimal results. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas during this time. It's important to follow all post-operative instructions carefully to ensure a smooth recovery. While walking is generally encouraged from the early stages, you may need to take it slow and avoid strenuous activities to prevent complications and facilitate healing.

Will I have limited mobility after BBL?

In the first few days following the BHeart® Brazilian butt lift, you may experience some limitations in your mobility. This is primarily due to the tenderness and swelling in the buttocks area. It's essential to give your body time to heal and avoid putting excessive pressure on the newly transferred fat. You may need to use special cushions or pillows when sitting to relieve any discomfort. Dr. Hwang will guide you on how to increase your mobility gradually and let you know when it's safe to resume normal activities.

Walking as part of BBL recovery

Walking is integral to the recovery process after a BHeart® Brazilian butt lift. Gentle walking not only helps to improve blood circulation and reduce the risk of blood clots but also aids in resolving swelling. However, it's crucial to listen to your body and not overexert yourself. Initially, we recommend short walks around your home. As you progress through your recovery, you can gradually increase the duration and distance of your walks. Dr. Hwang will provide personalized guidance based on your specific circumstances.

While the initial recovery period may require some adjustments to your mobility, rest assured that, in most cases, patients can walk normally within a few weeks. As the swelling subsides and your body heals, you'll notice an improvement in your comfort and mobility. It's important to note that the recovery timeline can vary from person to person. Dr. Hwang will monitor your progress and advise you about when it's safe to resume vigorous activities or exercise.
