My advice is to think more in terms of lifestyle and weight stability than time. You want to be at a 'happy' weight where you are eating a maintainable diet and working out at a maintainable schedule. When you can say those things, you're ready for surgery. Keep in mind breast feeding restrictions with medications postop.

Hope that helps!

Brazilian Butt Lift

You. are expecting in November, you may want to breast feed. Then you have to wait till you are finished breast feeding and completely dry, the about 2-3 months after that you can have surgery. Remember also you have an infant that you need to take care of while you are recovering from major surgery

               If you are able to get to a healthy weight in that 3 month time frame, a Brazilian buttlift can be performed.  I perform about 500 Brazilian buttlifts each year, and this procedure is the most surgeon dependent plastic surgery procedure.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

3 months after birth should be enough

Hi. Thank you for your question. Without knowing your medical history, I would say that if you are in perfectly good health condition, 3 months after birth should be enough waiting period in order to get the BBL.

The final decision depends of your physical exam, and the labs results. That's way I recommend you consult a board certified plastic surgeon  to get a more specific answer to your case in particular.
