Fat Grafting from Previous Lipoed Areas?

BBL and previous liposuction
Previous lipo areas
This will depend on how much fat you have left in that area and how much scar tissue was formed after your previous surgery, in most cases there isn't enough fat due to aggressive liposuction, however this is a case that needs to be evaluated on a in person consultation, so contact a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

As long as you have excess fat, it can be harvested from anywhere. And fat grafting can be repeated as many times as needed to help you achieve the result you desire, provided there are areas to harvest fat from. Good luck!
Getting fat for grafting from previously Liposuctioned areas
The short answer is yes, but it depends on how much was taken the first time and how much is needed. In general, there is not a lot of fat left over in previously liposuctioned areas, and over resection can be a problem.
Fat Grafting from Previously Liposuctioned Areas
Liposuction can be performed in previously liposuctioned areas, and the fat survives just as well. I perform revisions on previously liposuctioned patients on a daily or at least weekly basis, and Brazilian buttlifts can be done again as well. I have done this as well. Just find a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
