Patients need to avoid direct sitting on their buttocks for about 2-3 weeks after surgery to increase the survival of the delicate fat cells. You can sleep on your side and if you need to sit, you need to sit on a pillow or with a cushion under the back of your thighs. You should also wear a garment for about 4 weeks and avoid strenuous exercise for about 6 weeks. Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for a complete evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

Best wishes,
