How long to stay in Miami after BBL?

Table of Contents

BBL in Miami is a fat transfer procedure that requires the surgeon to remove fat from other body parts with excess fat, such as the inner thighs or abdomen, and inject the extracted fat into your buttocks. The primary purpose of undergoing BBL surgery is to achieve a smooth, enlarged, round, and beautiful butt. 

The fat transfer procedure has three stages. First, the surgeon removes the fat using thin cannulas. Second, the surgeon washes and filters the extracted tissues. Third, the surgeon injects the filtered tissues into the patient’s body. The surgeon gives them local or general anesthesia depending on the patient’s health status and other factors. 

Although you should expect to see the full results in five to six months, following your surgeon’s instructions is essential. If you are not from Miami and have undergone BBL surgery in this city, staying in the town for a few days or weeks is crucial to avoid complications. Read on! 

How many days should you stay in the recovery house after surgery?

When you travel outside your hometown or come to Miami for BBL surgery, expect to stay in the town for at least one week. Sometimes, your surgeon will ask you to stay in Miami for 2-3 weeks, depending on your health condition and recovery. 

The primary purpose is to ensure your body has enough time to heal. Some patients need to wait longer than 7-10 days if they have a slow healing mechanism. Likewise, you should stay for a little longer if you experience prolonged swelling. 

Following the postoperative instructions provided by your surgeon is crucial to speed up the healing process after BBL. For instance, we recommend drinking plenty of water and eating healthy food rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to improve your immune system and intracellular healing processes. 

Immediately Post BBL Surgery

All patients experience soreness, swelling, inflammation, and pain immediately after the procedure. You may also feel numbness in your body, particularly at the treatment site. If you experience pain, tell your surgeon to prescribe medication. The purpose is to manage the discomfort and pain in the coming days. 

We recommend staying at the recovery house to streamline the healing process. You will need to rest and take short walks from one room to another to ensure proper blood circulation. Short walks are essential to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain by increasing nutrient-rich blood flow to the incision sites. 

Avoid putting direct pressure on your butt, and sleep on your stomach or side. Use a booty or donut pillow when sitting to stay comfortable and prevent pressure on the healing site and impact on the grafted fat. 

Why do I have to Stay in Miami After my BBL?

You will experience discomfort and soreness during the first few days after surgery. Your surgeon will ask you to take shorter walks to decrease the risk of blood clots. Reduced blood flow to the incision site can cause lumps, sometimes life-threatening. 

For example, if you live in New York but have undergone BBL surgery in Miami, you can get in the car or plane to get back home. If you ignore to follow your surgeon’s instructions and travel for a prolonged period, you will increase the risk of complications, including infections and Painful Fat Necrosis after BBL

Although fat necrosis after BBL is rare, it can cause severe problems when you fail to follow the postoperative guidelines. It is crucial to stay in Miami for a few days or weeks to speed up the recovery. 

Fat necrosis is a severe condition characterized by the low blood supply to fatty tissues in your butt, causing the area to turn dark brown or black. This condition can lead to round and hard lumps under your skin if not taken care of. Consequently, your skin will appear uneven, dimpled, and less contoured.
