So, you’ve finally decided to get a Brazilian butt lift. You’ve done your research, you’ve consulted with a doctor, and you’ve scheduled an appointment for your operation.

But now what? How do you prepare yourself for your operation?

You probably feel like you have a million questions. After all, your confidence and self-image is on the line! It only makes sense that you want to do everything possible to ensure the best result for you and your butt. Here are some steps you can take to make sure your buttocks lift goes as smoothly as possible.

Follow a Healthy Diet

Following a healthy diet is always a good idea, but it’s especially important when you’re preparing for a buttocks lift. To ensure your operation’s success, you should try to maintain a stable weight prior to your procedure. That means eating nourishing meals with appropriate portion sizes; you should not be overeating or crash dieting. You should be focused on supplying your body with the vitamins, and minerals it needs so that you are strong enough for your procedure and can enjoy a speedy recovery.

Avoid Smoking

Smoking is never a good idea. In addition to the overall negative effects smoking has on your health, smoking makes it harder for your body to heal following surgery and may extend your recovery time. Smoking can even impact the results of your procedure, reducing the amount of fat that is successfully transferred and reducing the volume added to your butt.

Exercise Your Butt!

If you really want to maximize the potential of your procedure, you may want to consider starting a focused exercise regimen. When it comes to Brazilian butt lifts, some of the most commonly suggested exercises include squats, lunges, and other workouts that target the glutes, hips, and thighs. A workout regimen focused in these areas can help lift and tone the butt and can be an excellent way to accentuate the results of your Brazilian butt lift.

Listen to Your Surgeon

While the above recommendations are important, the most important thing you can do to make sure that you are prepared for your Brazilian butt lift procedure is to listen to your surgeon’s advice. Your surgeon can provide you with great tips tailored to your specific case, making sure you are prepared in the days and weeks leading up to your procedure. Remember: no two butts are alike, and what works for other people may not work for you. Don’t get frustrated–your surgeon is only a phone call away!
