During recovery, the body can absorb between 20% and 50% of the fat.
After an augmentation fat transfer, patients should be prepared to properly care for themselves and the newly transferred fat cells in order to obtain the best results from the procedure. The surgery itself could last between 2 and 6 hours depending on the amount of fat that is collected and the number of areas of the body to intervene. Some doctors may leave patients overnight to observe them after the procedure. The first night after you are discharged from the hospital, it would be best to ask a friend of your loved one to help you with the housework.
How well a patient takes care of himself after a fat buttock augmentation procedure will often determine whether the fat cells successfully develop an adequate blood supply and survive or not. Patients should plan ahead for their recovery to ensure they get the best results from their procedure. Below are some general guidelines to follow while recovering from a Brazilian butt lift:
“Avoid alcohol. Alcohol can dehydrate the body, but during recovery you must stay hydrated to help build a new blood supply for the transferred blood cells.”
During recovery your body develops a new blood supply to keep the new fat cells transferred. Not all transferred fat cells survive during this important phase. Cells that survive will become permanent.
Once recovery is over, the number of fat cells does not increase or decrease, what increases or decreases is the size of these cells. If you gain or lose weight, the volume of your derrier will also increase or decrease
