Butt implant patients can go home the same day as the operation wearing a special bandage that will stay in place for three to five days. After surgery, mobility will be difficult and restricted, requiring several days of rest.
Patients must avoid sitting directly on the buttocks or lying on their back for at least three weeks. The sutures in butt implant incisions are absorbable, so they will not require removal.
Bruising, swelling and some numbness for a few days is normal after receiving butt implants and will disappear gradually. Wearing compression garments will help minimize swelling post-surgery.
Your Mia Aesthetics surgeon will fully prepare you for what to expect during the recovery process and can teach you massage techniques that will help reduce inflammation. Analgesics will also help with inflammation and pain, and most people return to normal activity within a month after surgery.
All exercises and physical activities should be stopped for at least three weeks post-surgery. You’ll see the initial results of your butt implant surgery immediately, but final results won’t emerge until about 6 months after surgery, depending on the patient’s body and tissue-healing rate. Massage and ultrasound therapy may also be recommended as a surgical follow-up to prevent unevenness or wrinkles and reduce swelling.
