Typical Case Example
In terms of timeline, the initial surgeries (at least 2) require at least 6 weeks of healing including drains. Once all wounds heal and drains are removed, small scar revisions can be safely performed in six months. The optimal time for a fat transfer, or Brazilian Butt Lift is at least nine months from the time of initial surgeries. Note: not all patients are candidates for BBLs. Although not all local and systemic symptoms go away after surgery, the majority of them do and most patients resume healthy lives and often are transformed to their pre-injection state.
