You can expect some bruising and swelling after your procedure. It may also be uncomfortable to sit after buttock implants.
You should use a pillow when sitting for the first two weeks of recovery. Any discomfort can be managed with pain medication. Most patients can return to work two to three weeks after surgery. Patients should also wear a compression garment for two to three weeks.
You should be able to see a noticeable improvement in the size and shape of your buttocks immediately after surgery. However, it takes three to four months for the swelling to disappear and reveal the final results.
