How Soon Can I Be Active After a Butt Lift Procedure?

If you're interested in undergoing a butt lift procedure, chances are you're wondering what to expect when it comes to the recovery period. A common question that many have is how soon they can be active after a butt augmentation. Here is some information about how soon you can be active after a butt lift procedure.

Weeks One and Two

During the first two weeks after surgery, you should not put direct pressure on your buttocks for more than a few minutes at a time. You should only sit down when necessary. If you do sit down, be sure to use a pillow or soft cushion to limit the amount of pressure put on the buttocks. When resting, you should position yourself on your side or stomach. Take light walks during the first two weeks but avoid fat burning or strenuous activities.

Week Three

It is likely that you will be able to go back to work during the third week after surgery. However, you should still use a soft cushion when you sit. Continue to rest positioned on your stomach or side. Light cardiovascular activities like elliptical exercise and walking are permitted. However, it is a good idea to focus on weight training rather than aerobic activity to help the new fat cells in your buttocks stabilize and survive.

Weeks Four and Five

During the fourth and fifth weeks of recovery, you should still use a cushion if you're going to sit for extended periods of time. You can perform more intense activities like faster-paced walking and bicycling. If you choose to go bicycling, you should use a soft seat. You can now go swimming at the beach or pool. However, it is recommended that you lie on your stomach when you are relaxing.

Weeks Six through Eight

In most cases, you will be able to resume more vigorous activities after the sixth week of recovery. The fat cells have likely stabilized at this point, so you should be able to perform fat-burning exercises like running and jogging. You can also play baseball, soccer, and other outside sports.
