Thank you for your question. You should address the weight in your abdomen first by losing as much of that as you can before proceeding with your BBL. If you lose weight after a BBL fat can be lost anywhere including your buttocks. Typically 70% of the harvested fat that is transferred into your buttocks should stay. You could have a secondary fat transfer at the bases of the gluteal fold to ensure more support to your buttocks and improve contour. Internet discussion does not replace the advice of your physician. Hope this helps,Dr. Newall
If you lose weight after a fat transfer to the buttock procedure you will not only lose some of the size of your buttock, but you will also lose fat in other areas (abdomen, thighs, back, etc.). You may want to lose some weight before surgery since it sounds like you have excess intra-abdominal fat. Consult with a few plastic surgeons in person for a complete exam.Best wishes,Dr.Bruno
BBL procedure and weight loss
Hello, thank you for your question. Losing weight will definitely affect your results of your BBL. Weight loss affect all fat cells as well. You should consider this issue after your weight loss.
Will I lose the transfered fat in my butt if I continue to lose weight/fat in my midsection after a BBL?
Thank you for your question.You are right that losing weight will cause the size of your buttocks to decrease. The fat cells in your buttocks will shrink as a result of weight loss. For this reason, I think it's best to reach your goal weight prior to surgery. This will give your Brazilian butt lift the best chance to have long lasting results.
