Losing weight prior to Brazilian Butt Lift

You should obtain a stable weight prior to any of the cosmetic procedures in order to best prepare for a long term result.

One Step at a time Sunshine

Dear Sunshine,

First and foremost, you must lose the 45 lbs that you are planning to lose.  This will certainly be easier said than done and will likely take you a while, if you do it with diet and exercise.  Once you've reached your target weight your body characteristics will undoubtedly be different than they are right now.  This may change your needs/goals and will certainly simplify the surgery and decrease your risks. 

The short answer to your question is yes.  An  abdominoplasty and Brazilian Buttock Lift can be performed safely in the same setting.  Once you have gotten close to your target weight obtain a consultation with a plastic surgeon for options and a surgical plan.  Good luck!

Tummy Tuck and Brazilian Butt Lift should be done separately for the best result

For the best result, I always do these 2 procedures separately. The first reason is that I can be more aggressive about removing and transferring fat once the tummy tuck scar has healed. The second reason is that you cannot sit for two weeks after the butt lift and this is impossible if you're having q tummy tuck.
