I am 5'8 and used to weigh 226lbs. I am now down to 170lbs. I want to have a bbl done but my problem is, if I have lipo from my abdomin, back, and flanks, will that leave me with sagging skin? Is it possible to just get fat from my back and flanks and not touch the stomach? I know lipo doesn't improve stretch marks or tightness of the skin, but if its going to leave me with sagging skin, I can't do the bbl. I am 21 and want kids in the future so I'm not contemplating a tt at the moment.

The abdomen needs to be suctioned conservatively and the flanks and back aggressively. This will allow plenty of fat for transfer and better define your waist without incurring additional skin issues with your stomach. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

I believe that you are a good candidate for gluteal contouring with fat in spite of your stretch marks because of your age. You have enough fat and your skin looks resilient overall. Get a consult with a BC PS with expertise in Gluteal Sculpting.
