Is not a myth that liposuction in an area that was previously operated on is much more difficult secondary to scarring. I prefer the use of ultrasonic liposuction (VASER) to emulsify the fat in between the fibrous tissues and be able to sculpt the area better. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon with expertise in secondary or revision cases as the more times you have this done the more difficult to be to get the problem resolved.

Repeat liposuction with BBL
Certainly it can be more difficult to liposuction in an area that has been previously treated, but I have had nice success with this. It should be OK for BBL.
I want to have a Brazilian Butt Lift after previous liposuction. Is fibrous fat truth or myth?
Fat can be more fibrous, but liposuctioning in a previously liposuctioned area is much more difficult as the planes are scarred. However, in most cases, if fat is present, those areas can be used for harvest for the BBL. I perform a huge number of BBL revisions, so I am familiar with this scenario.
