- For any acceptable result, you need at least a panniculectomy (removal of excess abdominal skin).
- Weight loss and exercise will improve your health and your result,
- An examination and discussion of pros/cons will help you decide if liposuction, muscle repair, upper back lift and circumferential liposuction for the BBL are best for you.

Liposuction and BBL or Tummy Tuck too
TT vs LIpo
I don't think that you'll get successful results by only doing liposuction. I believe that you need several procedures to get to that apple shape body you want. First stage surgery would consist of a circular body lift, liposuction of the waist and lower back with fat transfer in to buttocks. In this case, I don't think enough fat can be transferred there because your skin seems really tight, making this really difficult to work with. In your second stage surgery, a back lift and axillary lift would be the final procedures to achieve the results. This would be after getting to at least 180 pounds.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
