Skin Quality and BBL

Skin quality can be assessed by pinching and inspection. Thin, sagging, sun damaged skin or stretch marks suggest damaged skin which may not respond well to filling with fat. 
I suggest you consult with an experienced Plastic surgeon who would guide you in your decision.

What gauges skin quality in BBL?

     Skin quality can be ascertained readily from a physical exam and almost all the time from photos.  The skin can sometimes respond very well to liposuction alone.
