After Surgery For Fake Buttocks, Women Can't Bathe For 2 Weeks, See Why


If you had open surgery, you won't be able to take a bath until your surgeon removes the staples that are keeping the incision closed. Usually, this occurs two weeks after surgery.

Your Healing

The area will be wrapped after liposuction to lessen pain, bruising, and swelling. The wrap aids in creating a smooth shape for the area and keeps blood from pooling where the fat was removed. It is possible to use support hose, a special girdle, elastic bandages and tape, firm-fitting clothing, or another option. This wrap may need to be worn for three to four weeks. For approximately 6 weeks, you might need to wear support hose if fat was removed from your calves or ankles.

For several days, fluid may drain from the cuts (incisions). The fluid will initially be bloody but will change to clear after a few days.

For at least 10 to 14 days, the area will likely be swollen and bruised.

As soon as you feel at ease, you can resume your regular activities. It might take a few days to a few weeks to complete. In a few days, most people can resume light work. If a significant amount of fat was removed, it might take longer to return to normal.

A crucial component of your treatment and security is follow-up care. Make sure to schedule and keep all appointments, and if you experience any difficulties, call your doctor or nurse hotline. Knowing the results of your tests and keeping track of the medications you take are also wise decisions.

What self-care techniques can you use at home?


1. Take a nap when you're tired. You'll recover more quickly if you get enough sleep.

2. Try to take a daily walk. Start by taking a few more steps today than you did yesterday. Step up your walking distance little by little. Walking increases blood flow, which reduces the risk of pneumonia and constipation.

3. In a few days, you should be able to go back to work.

4. Wait until your doctor gives the all-clear before engaging in strenuous activities like bicycling, jogging, weight lifting, or aerobic exercise. Possibly in two to three weeks.
