Can you have the BBL if you have Herpes?

Yes.  Genital herpes is not a contraindication to having a Brazilian Butt Lift.  I would recommend that you take Valtrex both before as well as after the procedure to help prevent a flare up.
Good Luck!

Fat Transfer to Buttocks and Genital Herpes.

Hello,

As long as there is no outbreak there should not be a problem.  There is also no harm taking a suppressive medication such as Valtrex several days before and a week after just to be on the safe side.
