WHEN it comes to cosmetic surgery, it appears that you can pretty much get anything nipped and tucked these days.
And one recent plastic surgery trend, which is doing the rounds on social media, is getting a Brazilian bum lift.
But one some people often forget about is the after care of these major surgeries.
And one woman, who goes by the name of Bebitha Bandera on TikTok, has warned her followers of what to expect after the surgery.
Sharing the video to her 41.7k followers, she wrote: “Everybody wants a BBL (Brazilian bum lift) until they realise…”
Bebitha then goes on to list the different exercises she can no longer do.
She says: “You can’t sit down for weeks.
“Having to sleep on my stomach for six weeks.
“Back pains, having to use the bathroom backwards the first couple of weeks, having to wear faja (undergarment) 24/7.

“Having 10-15 painful massages.”
A Brazilian butt lift involves three steps.
These include fat being removed from the hips, lower back, thighs, abdomen, and/or other areas with liposuction.
The extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer.
The cosmetic surgeon injects fat into specific points on the buttocks to increase volume and shape.
Many people were quick to comment on her video, while also asking more questions.
One wrote: “Do you think I can go to work after one week?”
Bebitha replied: “Yes I’m already working.”
Another added: “I have done it two times and it didn’t hurt at all.”
While someone else wrote: “Omg why can’t you sit?”
And Bebitha replied: “You can’t put pressure on it.”
