Brazilian Butt Lift and Breast Augmentation

Hi there-

Brazilian Butt Lift and Breast Enhancement procedures can certainly be performed at the same time, but great care needs to be exercised in the performance, in order to prevent the positioning for one to compromise the outcome of the other.

In other words, while doing the breast surgery, you will need to be on your back- if you have just had your buttock grafted, this is a problem unless special positioning precautions are taken. Conversely, if the breasts are done first, and you are then placed on your chest to perform the buttock surgery, compromise of your breast outcome could occur.

The best way to assure that your appropriate desire to pursue both procedures at the same time does not compromise your outcome is to find a surgeon Board Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery and discuss is with them.

As long as care is taken in your positioning during the procedure and in the recovery period, you should be able to combine the two.

Butt Lift and Breast Implant combination

Although many surgeons do combination procedures to reduce the need for multiple stages and keep the time off from work to a minimum, one needs to consider the risks of anesthesia for long surgeries that will rise dramatically beyond 6 hours. Also, particularly with breast implants, when considering the risks of infection around foreign body implants, be very careful the combination does not increase the risk of this complication.

Please respect your surgeon's warning if he recommends that a staged procedure be less risky than the combination. We all want the best results with the lowest risk profile.

Difficult recovery for Brazilian Butt Lift and Breast Augmentation with Implants

Yes this can be performed and this has been discussed elsewhere on Realself. Many physicians object because in the process for breast augmentation many paitents recover on their back which places pressure on the buttock region and may compromise the survival of the fat grafts.

BBL and breast implants

Yes, these procedures can be combined without any problems. You could also consider fat grafting of the breast instead of an implant.

Possible but makes recovery more difficult

You probably should undergo these two procedures separately primarily because of the recovery. The post-operative recovery process will most likely be much more uncomfortable for you if undergoing these two procedures at one time, since you'll need to be cautious with your breasts and buttocks. Your movement will be severely limited. For example, you most likely will be instructed to not sit or lie on your back to allow your buttocks to heal properly, but these two positions are very comfortable when you're recovering from breast augmentation. As a result, you'll probably have to stay on your side most of the time.While these two procedures can be done at the same time, I do not recommend it for the aforementioned reasons. However, speak to your surgeon to find out if it's suitable for you, since they'll have a better understanding of your health and what you'd like to achieve from surgery.

BBL combined with Breast Augmentation.

Of course they can. There is no actual rule stating the you CAN NOT sit on your buttocks after a BBL. If you are wearing the correct surgical girdle after surgery then there wouldn't be a problem with sitting. The correct surgical girdle protects the harvested fat that was injected by keeping it in place even while sitting on your buttocks. This way your BBL and your Breast Augmentation are safe during your recovery time.
