How long will it be before i can return to my normal exercise routine after a butt lift? I like to stay pretty active; i normally run several miles a week and do yoga every day. For how long will i need to avoid exercise following my butt lift procedure?

In brief: Exercising After BBL

In general, it is best not to sit on your buttocks in any way for 14 days and, during the 3rd week, do a minimum amount of sitting on a Roho cushion.
Your plastic surgeon will let you know when you can return to your exercise routine and how to successfully do that without compromising your health or your results (based on your specific surgery and case).

In brief: That Depends

Many excellent plastic surgeons host public lectures answering questions like these.
Alternatively, a phone call with this question to a plastic surgeon you're considering is entirely appropriate. No need to be hesitant! in general, though, a 6 week break from vigorous exercise following an implant is suggested by many plastic surgeons.
