Can I get a Mommy makeover and the fat taken out of me? Can I have that transferred into my butt????

Hi, i wanted to get a mommy makeover but i was told that when getting this procedure done the doctor pulls fat out the stomach area to flatten your stomach. So i was wondering can that fat be transferred into my butt? Only concerns i have is that i once got into an accident and it required me to be on blood thinners because i had blood cloths, wil getting these procedures be harmful to me?

Are You Candidate for a Mommy Makeover

It's difficult to suggest without a in-person one-on-one consultation. The Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures to bring a woman’s body back to the way she looked prior to pregnancy. Most commonly some variation of a #TummyTuck and #BreastSurgery are performed. Additional procedures can include liposuction, umbilical hernia repair.  The most common #breastprocedures include #mastopexy or #breastlift, #breastaugmentation, or #breastreduction.  #MummyTummy is a term given to modified tummy tucks which can use liposuction and skin tightening with radiofrequency such Vanquish, Vela3, thermage, thermiRF and others.  The actual fat contouring can be done non-surgically as well with #UltraShape or Cool-Sculpting.

#Combined operations are often performed with our #Gynecology colleagues. Tubal ligation is a common post pregnancy procedure which is done at the time of many of the surgeries included with a #MommyMakeover. If you require a gynecologic operation or study (laparoscopy) and are considering a plastic surgery procedure, discuss these issues with your physician and board-certified plastic surgeon. Also, combining these #procedures may decrease anesthetics, costs, and recovery time.
In addition to a one-on-one consultations with a board certified Plastic Surgeon, patients always need to be seen by their primary care doctor prior to such procedures.  We screen every patient and their medical records for risks of blood clots (DVT) and then take appropriate measures.  MWL (massive weight loss patients of  75 lbs or more) tend to have poor skin elasticity and will frequently need additional tightening even afte 6 -12 months regardless of who or how their surgery is performed. This is simply the nature of such body tissues and the ability to heal with the lack or limited elasticity. 
Your procedures should be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.

Tummy tuck & BBL

The procedure term for removing fat from your abdomen and using it in your butt is a brazilian butt lift. And yes, it can be combined with a tummy tuck. Schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss. Let them know about your blood thinners at that time.

Multiple procedures


Thank you for your question. Medical history such as blood clots will be important for your Plastic Surgeon to evaluate before planning your surgery with you. I recommend that you seek a board certified Plastic Surgeon who specialises in these procedures and book an in person consultation so that they can examine you and offer options.

All the best

You should obtain medical clearance before considering surgery.  The operation should be tailored to your specifications and anatomy to produce a dramatic result. Seek out a plastic surgeon who has performed these combination procedures hundreds of times and has a great number of reviews and before and after pictures.

Mommy make-over with fat injections into butt

Thank you for asking about your mommy make-over.

  • If you are having liposuction, the fat can definitely be harvested and injected into the buttocks.
  • Your surgeon will check your general health and advise you about the risks -
  • If you are having a tummy tuck, with your past history of blood clots, it is probably wise to have the liposuction with fat injections done separately.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.

Mommy Makeover With Fat Transfer

Thank you very much for your question.

Yes, a combination of a tummy tuck, and liposuction with placing the fat in the buttocks (the Brazilian Butt Lift) can be done at the same time in properly selected patients.  Regarding your blood thinners, you can have this surgery done, however there will need to be a close conversation between your plastic surgeon and the doctor managing your anticoagulant medications around the time of surgery.  I recommend consulting with a plastic surgeon who will examine you, and come up with a good plan after discussing your goals.  Best of luck!
