Need A Lift? How To Prepare For Your Butt Lift

Posted on: 30 November 2018


If you're scheduled for a butt lift, it's time to prepare for the procedure. Your butt lift will give you a fuller, firmer, shapelier but. However, there are some steps you'll need to take that will help you prepare for the procedure. Here are four steps that will help you prepare for your butt lift.

Start a Smoking Cessation Program

If you're going to be having a butt lift, now's the time to stop smoking. It's always a good idea to stop smoking prior to surgery, but it's even more important now that you'll be having a butt lift. Smoking increases your risk of post-operative complications, including infections. However, smoking also interferes with the final results of your butt lift by reducing the amount of fat that can be implanted into your butt. The end results will be a smaller, less shapely butt lift. Before you go in for your butt lift, complete a smoking cessation program.

Focus Your Workouts on Your Buttocks

Now that you're planning a butt lift, it's time to get serious about your workouts. While you're preparing for the procedure, focus your workouts on your buttocks area. Lifting and toning your buttocks is the best way to ensure the results you want from your butt lift. Some of the best exercises for your butt include lunges and squats. Don't forget to work out your hips and thighs, as well. The additional attention to your hips, thighs and buttocks will provide you a more shapely appearance following your butt lift.

Prepare for the Recovery Period

Once you've had your butt lift, you'll need to spend some time recovering at home. However, unlike with other cosmetic procedures, you won't be able to sit down for several weeks following your butt lift. While you're preparing for your butt lift, don't forget to prepare for the recovery period. Arrange to have someone come in and help you to the bathroom, and around the house. You'll also need to prepare a comfortable place for you to rest – either on your side or on your stomach. Your surgeon will tell you when it's safe to sit on your butt again.

Don't Expect Immediate Results

After your butt lift is completed, you may be expecting to see some immediate results. However, you shouldn't set yourself up for disappointment. Your butt will be swollen, bruised and sore for quite a while. In fact, it might be several weeks before you begin to see the results you're looking for.
