Covid - 19 Update

As everyone is aware , the world is in an unprecedented time as a result of Covid-19. This virus has the ability to cause great harm to a small portion of our population but requires diligence from everyone in order to reduce the potential for un-necessary deaths. Due to the current level of concern with respect to the global pandemic we are rescheduling the following types of visit as follows:

All Surgeries

All NEW patient visits

All Filler and Botox Visits

All Aesthetician treatments

We will be rescheduling everything as soon as we have the ability to do so based on best practice and current knowledge of safety.

Dr. Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Boileau will continue to see early follow up post-operative patients although the dates and times will be a little more restricted and spread out in order to limit  patient contact in our waiting room and allow physical distancing. We ask that you stay home and re-schedule if; you have travelled out of the country in the past 14 days, if you have a cough, fever or cold/flu symptoms. 

We understand that this is a very stressful time for everyone and that many people have made significant commitments and changed life plans to have appointments and treatments scheduled. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience that this will cause.

We greatly appreciate your support and trust in the doctors and staff at the Landings Surgical Centre. We are optimistic that this will be short lived but not able to predict the timing to a more normal lifestyle.

We kindly ask that you accept that we will do our best to respond to you in a timely fashion. Please understand that we are working through some difficult staffing issues that may require you to leave a voice message should you try to call. 

We will continue to provide retail sales of all Aesthetic products which can be either mailed or picked up (again with limited hours). Should you wish to support local during these difficult times please reach out to us and we will keep you replenished with the products that you have been accustomed to.

We are here for you now and in the future.

What to Expect during Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

By The Landings Surgical Centre on November 25, 2017

During a Brazilian butt lift, fat is transferred from the thighs, abdomen, or other areas with excess fat and grafted into the buttocks to create a well defined, proportionate bottom.

When considering a Brazilian butt lift, patients should understand what to expect during the recovery process. While each patient's recovery experience will be unique, the following are some general things to expect during Brazilian butt lift recovery.

For personalized recovery information, contact Halifax, NS plastic surgeons Richard Bendor-Samuel and Louis Boileau.

The First Few Days after Surgery

During the first few days after Brazilian butt lift surgery, patients should expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the buttocks. Patients will be given a prescription for pain medication to help manage discomfort during recovery and compression garments to help reduce swelling.

Compression garments should be worn at all times during recovery to help support the tissues while the body heals, but may be removed when showering. Most patients are able to shower about two days after surgery provided they gently wash the buttocks.

During recovery, it's important for patients to avoid putting pressure on the buttocks when sitting or lying down. Keeping pressure off the buttocks helps the fat transferred during the Brazilian butt lift procedure to successfully integrate with the existing buttock tissue. Placing pillows under the thighs or laying on the stomach can help keep pressure off the buttocks. 

It's also recommended that patients stay hydrated and stick to healthy foods that are low in sodium to reduce swelling and encourage healing.

Patients should get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous exercise or other activities, as these can increase the risk of complications.

Additionally, it's often beneficial for patients to have a friend or family member stay with them during the first few days of recovery to help around the house.

The Week after Surgery

During the first week of recovery, patients will need to get plenty of rest and take time off from work. Many patients are well enough to return to work after about a week of recovery, but should continue to avoid strenuous activity.

Patients should also avoid alcohol, smoking, or taking certain medications, such as aspirin, certain vitamins, such as vitamin E, and certain supplements, such as ginkgo biloba, as these can increase the risk of bleeding and interfere with healing.

Patients are encouraged to take short, light walks during the first week of recovery to help with blood circulation and healing. 

Two to Three Weeks after Surgery

By two to three weeks after surgery, patients should continue to avoid strenuous activity. Normal activities that don't require heavy lifting, stretching, or squatting may be resumed. Some patients will be recovered enough to begin sitting on their buttocks around three weeks after recovery, but should confirm with their surgeon before doing so.

One Month after Surgery and Beyond

After about a month of recovery, patients can begin bathing in a tub or swimming again. Most patients are fully healed within two to six months after surgery. However, patients may be given approval to resume strenuous activities as early as six weeks after surgery. Final results of Brazilian butt lift treatment can be expected once all swelling has subsided, about six months or less after surgery.
