Other than that try drinking a Gatorade, Powerade or a Smart Water during the first 8 weeks of your recovery.

Keep A Stable Weight

What should I do after weight loss?

Fluctuations in weight can negatively affect the results of a Brazilian Butt lift. Minimal fluctuation of 5 or so pounds is not a significant change in weight, however, significant fluctuation will cause the fat to accumulate in “new problem areas”.

Weight loss after a BBL should be proportionate to wight loss throughout the entire body.
