BBL and water lipo for waist?

I originally went for water lipo consult ended up wanting BBL as well after thinking about it if I get BBL why am I getting lipo ? Would I get the same results with only BBL ? In other words why pay 2 services if it's killing 2 birds with one stone ?

BBL surgery (fat injections to the buttocks) requires extensive liposuction to get the fat to do the procedure. The two procedures are intimately linked. It is an operation in which the patient  gets two distinct operation which together also contribute to how well the enlarged buttocks will look.

 A brazilian butt lift requires that you harvest fat from other areas. This inevitably requires liposuction to do so.

You need to do the lipo to get fat for the BBL, that is part of the procedure. It doesn't matter if it is water lipo or regular lipo.

Thank you for your question. In my practice the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure includes liposuction of all areas necessary to harvest the fat to be injected. The price for the BBL should include the liposuction. I would discuss with your Plastic Surgeon again to be sure you understand the procedure they are recommending. Good Luck!
