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.
