If you’re tired of spending hours working out and even devoting one or more days a week to glute workouts only to experience minimal gains, if any, we have a solution that will help you finally reach your goals. At the office of Dr. Gregory E Rauscher, M.D., in Hackensack, NJ, we offer the Brazilian butt lift, a procedure that will help you achieve the backside of your dreams without having to do a single squat.
How Can You Make a Butt Lift Last Longer?
Once you undergo this procedure, it will take several months for you to see your final results. Once those results appear, you’re going to love them so much that you will want to do everything possible to maintain them for as long as possible. You can take several steps to help protect the longevity of your butt lift so that you can enjoy it permanently.
Follow the Aftercare Instructions
One of the easiest ways to make your Brazilian butt lift last longer is to follow every aftercare instruction. After your procedure, we will provide you with a list of directions, and if you want to ensure that you get the best and longest-lasting results, you must follow each one. When you follow each of these directions closely, you can ensure that your results will last permanently.
Avoid Excessive Pressure
First, you should avoid excessive sitting or standing and anything that puts pressure on the buttocks for eight weeks after your procedure. Doing so will ensure that the fat in the area can settle and adhere to the area permanently.
While this may feel uncomfortable, knowing that your results depend on following this instruction can help give you the motivation to make it through this part of the recovery. Also, keep in mind that this is only a short-term directive, and you will be back to all of your favorite activities soon, whether that’s visiting New Jersey’s great beaches or enjoying an evening out with friends.
Sleep on Your Stomach
When sleeping, make sure that you sleep on your stomach at all times to avoid putting pressure on the treatment sites. If you’re not naturally a stomach-sleeper, you can train yourself to become one by practicing during the weeks prior to your procedure so that when your results depend on it, you’ll be ready to follow those directions.
Use the Pillow
There are special pillows designed to help promote your recovery after a Brazilian butt lift. These pillows are designed to absorb the pressure when you sit so that your newly transplanted fat cells are not compressed, displaced, disrupted, or destroyed.
Once you undergo this procedure, we will provide you with instructions on how to use this pillow to your advantage during your recovery. We will provide you more information about this pillow once your procedure is complete, but once it is in your possession, it’s important that you use it.
Avoid Strenuous Workouts
You should avoid strenuous workouts for the first three months after your procedure to ensure that the newly transplanted fat cells adhere to the area. Once those three months have passed, you can slowly resume your normal workout schedule. We will provide you with a complete list of instructions regarding your activity levels, when and how you should move after the procedure, and the best workouts to help promote results after your recovery is over.
Plan Your Workouts Accordingly
Another way to make your results last as long as possible is to plan your workouts accordingly. Once the three months during which your movements are restricted have passed, you can resume your normal exercise routine. However, you should focus on exercises that will build your glute muscles which will help your results look even better.
Focusing on exercises that will increase the muscle size in your buttocks will prevent you from losing those newly transplanted fat cells. You should focus on squats, lunges, and plyometric exercises that will build and strengthen your glute muscles on leg day. Avoid workouts that are purely cardio-based because they will cause you to burn excess calories and shrink down, negatively affecting your results.
Don’t Lose Weight
If you lose weight after a Brazilian butt lift, there is no way to target your weight loss to a certain area; you will lose weight proportionally from your entire body, including your buttocks. If this happens, it will cause your buttocks to shrink. Once you undergo this procedure, you should stay within five to ten pounds of your pre-procedure weight. This will keep you from losing the fat cells in your buttocks and destroying our results.
Avoid Body Contouring Treatments
While body contouring treatments like Coolsculpting and others intended to freeze or melt away fat cells can help you reach your body goals, you don’t want to schedule them after a Brazilian butt lift. Trying to target fat cells in your buttocks post-treatment would be counterintuitive in every way. Your goal is to help those fat cells adhere permanently, and any type of body contouring treatment that destroys fat cells will ruin your results.
