Bbl after pregnancy #2

I'm expecting my 2nd baby in January. I want to get a bbl after. How soon after I have her can I get a bbl? Also, will I have lose skin due to the lipo that will be performed?

I would recommend waiting at least 3 months. Then, schedule an in person consultation to for evaluation. Seek a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of these procedures, has great reviews and photos, and is an expert in this field.

BBL after Pregnancy

Hello, I appreciate the time you are spending researching this procedure.  

You want to wait until your weight has stabilized and you are not swollen anymore.  Typically, the minimum time for this is 6 weeks to 3 months.  I would need to see how much loose skin is present before liposuction to tell you what will be present after.  

If you have any further questions/comments/concerns please reach out.  Otherwise, I wish you the best of luck!

You may need 3 months or more before considering a BBL after delivery.

Thank you for your question.

If you are not breastfeeding, I would recommend you wait at least 3-6 months after pregnancy to consider a BBL, if you are breastfeeding then I would wait around 6-12 months. This gives the body time to recover and hormone levels to get back to close to normal. If you are not back to your pre-pregnancy weight, I would wait even longer to try and shed those extra pounds before electing surgery. In regards to loose skin, an in person exam is needed to determine your skin laxity. My advice to you is to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon so you can get a full body examination to see if you are a good candidate and to come up with the best plan for you. I hope this helps.

I appreciate your question.

I would recommend that you wait 6-12 months after you finish breast feeding prior to undergoing elective surgery.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!
