While gaining weight for a BBL, (30lbs) how do I know if the gained fat will be abdominal or subcutaneous?? From what I understand only subcutaneous fat can be removed through lipo & transfered, whilst the other one can't. I'm gaining 30 lbs in 12 months & keeping a stable weight 7 months prior to surgery so the fat has better chances of survival when grafted. Should I even bother?

Subcutaneous Fat vs Visceral Fat During Weight Gain Prior to Brazilian Buttlift
This is a very good question, and the truth is that this cannot be reliably predicted. However, in general, the subcutaneous fat stores are usually far greater than the visceral fat stores. I would find a plastic surgeon who does a lot of Brazilian buttlifts (and I mean a lot) and determine if you really need to gain all of the weight. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
