I would like to get a BBL. I'm HIV positive with an undetectable viral load (less than 20 copies per cu/Dl) with a T-cell count in the high 600's. I've been on meds. for five years. Is my health status a disqualifier?
Is It Possible to Receive a BBL with HIV Positive Status?

Brazilian Butt Lift
HIV with low viral load normal CD4, CD8, and no other medical problem and a clearance from your doctor treating the HIV, there is no contraindication to surgery
HIV Status and Brazilian Buttlift Candidacy
HIV status by itself does not disqualify you from the surgery, although using disposable items for the surgery will increase the cost. Find the plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
HIV and Brazilian Butt Lift
Your HIV status, which by the numbers sounds stable, does not disqualify you from having a Brazilian Butt Lift or any other surgery.
