After a Brazilian butt lift is very important to avoid pressure on your butt. The fat grafts survive best with minimal outside pressure and squishing. Moreover, pressure in certain areas and not others could create an irregular contour. For one week after a Brazilian Butt Lift, you will need to avoid lying on your back or sitting. This means for 1 week you have to lie on your sides, lay on your stomach or stand. The only time it is ok to sit is when you are on the toilet. It can be difficult to avoid lying on your back while sleeping so most patients create walls with pillows to help prevent them from rolling over. After 1 week you may sit with your buttock suspended in the air. This means placing a towel, pillow or cushion under your thighs (not your butt) to suspend your buttock in the air. After 4 weeks you may start laying on your back and sitting normally.
