Brazilian butt lift and tummy tuck timing for surgery
I don't recommend doing a brazilian butt lift and a tummy tuck at the same time. The Brazilian butt lift should be done first and then after 6 months you can have the tummy tuck if necessary
In my practice, I perform butt reshaping very frequently. To answer your question in regard to having multiple procedures done at the same time, including a tummy tuck, you have to understand what involves the postoperative recovery of the fat transfer procedure to the buttock area and what the procedure is about. The fact is that as much fat as possible is needed to reshape the person’s butt and make it proportionate to the body frame. In other words, fat will be taken from the abdomen, flanks, back, and axilla among other areas. Now, after surgery, you can’t sit constantly on the buttock for approximately 10-14 days to make sure the fat is not damaged. If going to the bathroom, the person can just sit for 5 minutes. That’s it.
Now, let’s think about the tummy tuck. You will have an incision on your lower abdomen that will hurt so most likely you won’t be able to lie on your stomach for some days. Let’s say you have a tummy tuck and a Brazilian butt lift. You won’t be able to lie on your back due to the Brazilian butt augmentation nor on your chest because of the tummy tuck. In other words, your recovery will be unbearable.
This is not a matter of having multiple procedures done at the same time. In fact, multiple procedures at the same time like a tummy tuck and a breast surgery (Mommy makeover) could be done but not together with the Brazilian butt lift. In my practice, I perform the Brazilian butt lift first, harvest as much fat as possible, and then do a tummy tuck at least 6 months after the procedure, if the patient needs it. This will depend on how your skin will respond to liposuction.
In my practice, some of my patients have indicated me that certain surgeons recommend having multiple procedures done with the buttock augmentation. On further questioning, they even recommend having a tummy tuck and also the butt augmentation while the patients are on their back on the surgical table. Injecting the butt with fat when the patients are lying on their back is a bad idea. You will need to be on your chest for the surgeon to visualize the areas of deficiency and inject the buttock properly. In addition, if you take into consideration the surgical implications of both procedures, you come to the conclusion that it is not possible. For example, when you close the incision for a tummy tuck, many times the patient’s belly needs to be bent forward to excise the excess abdominal skin. Consequently, this will prevent the patient from lying on the chest for the buttock procedure once the tummy tuck is done.
Understanding the postoperative recovery is as important as the surgery itself. In conclusion, I do not recommend having any procedure done in addition to the butt sculpting procedure since you will compromise your recovery and long-term results
Combining Brazilian Butt Lift with Tummy Tuck or Liposuction
Brazilian Butt Lift with Tummy Tuck or Lipo not recommended
Yes - it COULD - but I would not recommend it.
If you are a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt lift, your surgeon would need to liposuction fat from elsewhere for grafting to your buttocks. The commonest area for getting the fat would be your tummy. So the operation would start with you on your back having your tummy fat being suctioned and then processed for loading into small syringes.
A tummy tuck at this time would not be safe since the blood supply to the tummy skin could be seriously damaged when the skin is now lifted after having been liposuctioned. In addition, not a lot of loose skin could be taken off since you would need to be put on your tummy afterwards (instead of being woke up in the beach chair position) for the back procedure.
I would recommend you have one OR the other first. Which one to go with would depend how much fat would be needed for your buttocks. If a lot would be needed, I would recommend doing the Brazilian Butt Lift first. If a small amount of fat would do it, I would do the tummy tuck first since it will narrow your waist and give a better idea of how much fat would be needed for a good Brazilian Butt Lift result.
Hope this was helpful.

But I am in 100% agreement that laying on the new fat grafts (which you will need to do after tummy tuck) may cause some loss of volume or shape.
I have done a number of combined cases and suspect this may have been a problem a few times.

It is possible to combine a Brazilian Butt Lift with a tummy tuck, but may not be best idea.
In our practice we only ask that we can do a tiny type at the same time as a Brazilian Butt lift. Although it is possible, patients may receive better results if these procedures are done separately. In a staged procedure, the first step is to perform a Brazilian Butt lift. During this stage we will perform aggressive lack of suction of the abdomen hips and waist. After this liposuction the patient may have loose skin in these areas. The patient is reassured that this skin will be removed during the tummy tuck in the second stage. Once the patient has recovered from Brazilian Butt lift, they may receive a tummy tuck. By performing these procedures separately, the patient can recover well and enjoy the best possible results

Tummy Tuck with Brazilian Butt Lift
It is sometimes a benefit to have a tummy tuck along with the brazilian butt lift. I these cases a lot more fat can be removed because the area where the tummy tuck is to be performed can be liposuctioned aggressively since the skin would be removed and there is no concern for skin dimpling.
So the procedure would go with liposuction of the abdomen and hips while on your back. You would be turned to do more sculpting and liposuction with the fat grafting to the gluteals. You would be finally turned supine again for the tummy tuck portion.
Brazilian Butt Lift can usually be combined with tummy tuck
I am the originator of this procedure, I can tell you that for most patients, it is perfectly safe to combine this surgery, with a tummy tuck at the same time. In fact, this is easily the number 1 combination of procedures in my office.
We have been able to achieve fantastic results for our patients and have never compromised a patient's safety. The health and overall wellness of our patients has always, and will always remain our first concern.
This is possible
Brazillian butt lift will need liposuction and fat harvesting. The only cocern is the amount of fat you have. If you have fair amonut of fat aound the waist line, you can get lipo,fat grafting in prone postion and then repostion to supine position and do tumy tuck. This may be bit too much surgery for some surgeons and patients. The safety of the patient is the most important factor.
