Blog Series on Brazilian Butt Lift:  The ten things you’ve been wanting to know. Number 8/10: Q: What will my skin look like along the areas where I have the liposuction for a BBL?

You will be able to drive when the physician, most likely at your first follow-up appointment, clears you and when you are no longer taking narcotic pain medication. You will not have drains or surgical dressings to change. Depending on the area of liposuction, you will be provided a surgical compression (ACE wrap or binder) garment to be worn until your first post-operative appointment.

Blog Series on Liposuction:  The ten things you’ve been wanting to know. Number 8/10: Q: Should I be at my goal weight before liposuction? A: Liposuction is not a form of weight loss.

Blog Series on Liposuction:  The ten things you’ve been wanting to know. Number 7/10: Q: Will I have scars from liposuction surgery? A: The liposuction cannula entry-point incisions are less than 1cm in length and are placed in well-hidden locations. For example, if you receive abdominal liposuction there are usually two incisions hidden below the underwear line and maybe one at the belly button. It is important to have realistic expectations, and know that anytime an incision is made for surgery there will be a scar, which will fade over time.
