How Painful is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

I'm in my early 40s, fit and and for the last year I've been contemplating having a Brazilian Butt Lift. The only thing that's stoping me right now, is my fear of pain. How painful is a Brazilian Butt Lift? Is it as bad as it seems? How long is the recovery? When will I be able to sit down/lay on my back? Thanks!

I assume you mean fat injection to the buttocks. If you are as fit as you imply the rate limiting step may be the amount of fat you have available for injection into the buttocks or removed from around the buttocks. The pain is more from the harvest sites than the injection sites. You recovery should be complete within 3 or 4 weeks. The pain mostly subsides after the first few days. You can sit down or lay down the day after surgery but you should not sit in a chair for 8 hours of work until at least 10 or 12 days after surgery.

Everyone is different so please keep that in mind. Most of our patients will be in the most pain for the first 2 or 3 days, following that they tell us they are sore like they had an intense work out at the gym. The buttock is the most uncomfortable part of this procedure but the patients say that it is sore for a week or 2 but sitting on a pillow helps. Again please keep in mind every one has individual pain tolerance's. Best of luck.
