11 common questions after BBL procedures 

Have you decided to have a BBL surgery?

You should take into account that it takes almost 4 weeks to come back to a normal daily life. The recovery period is long and needs very special care. First of all, you need someone to help you. Make sure you have someone to take you home and take care of you during the first 3 days.  

You cannot lift heavy objects and you should avoid doing strenuous activities during several weeks, that’s why you need someone to assist you with some tasks. Remember that, you can’t smoke 4 weeks before and after the surgery; if possible, don’t do it at all. Smoking causes blood clots and bad wound healing.

Do not take any herbal supplement, vitamins, Aspirin, or over the counter medicines 2 weeks before and after the surgery. They can cause bleeding.

Why you should stay hydrated. In the modern world it often feels like we are dictated to by a series of priorities. Check emails, charge the phone, get out of the house to keep ahead of the rush hour crush. And of course, get the first caffeine kick of the day as early as possible.

But in the rush to get things done and get on with our day, we can very quickly become de-hydrated. And it is said that even mild dehydration can have an adverse impact on both mood and energy levels.

“Mild dehydration is about a 1.5 percent loss of body weight,” says Harris Lieberman, Ph.D., a scientist with the U.S. Army.

If you went about your day, taking time for some light exercise, without drinking water, you are likely to suffer mild dehydration.
