 If hypertension is controlled, this should not pose any additional risk.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts and liposuction procedures each year. Look for great reviews and great before and after pictures.

I think that the most important thing to do is to see your  medical doctor or cardiologist so they can  properly regulate your bloos pressure. You will more than likely need a preoperative clearance before surgery.

Hypertension and Cosmetic Surgery

Hypertension if it is well controlled does not preclude one from having cosmetic surgery.  Your plastic surgeon must consult with your primary physician if there are any concerns prior to any surgery.
