Wanting Lipo, possibly, and BBL.

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. This is the surgical procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied, it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain. Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery, that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed performing a thigh lift!

How to find the right surgeon

Selecting a good plastic surgeon involves many choices. RealSelf is a good place to start but I would do much more research. First you want to make sure you are selecting  a surgeon board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. Any doctor can call themselves a "cosmetic surgeon" and most will be board certified in something, just not plastic surgery. I would look for someone who is a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). This goes a step beyond ASPS as member surgeons must specialize in cosmetic plastic surgery and be recommended by their peers. You should also only consider plastic surgeons who have local hospital privileges and who operate in accredited facilities, not in their office. Also make sure they only use board certified anesthesiologists. I would then look at reviews on RealSelf and Google. Also look at their website to see if they have many post op photos you like. Schedule several consultations and see which doctor and staff seems to be a fit for you. Ask to talk with previous patients who have had the surgery you are considering. Anyone good will have a list of them. Happy hunting.

Finding the right Doctor

Start with an Internet search. Find docs w a good amount of before and afters photos and lots of reviews w a focus on liposuction and fat transfers, See if you can contact a reviewer to hear a first hand experience. Visit with lipo / fat transfer specialized plastic surgeons and have them explain their technique.  Keep in mind, this is a procedure where flying out of town is a valid option bc the recovery is fairly short and the risk for complications is low.

VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring with Fat Grafting

That is one of the most gratifying procedures in my office. We call this "hi def physique" when it's combined with skin removal or breast lifting.  Please see an expert for a consultation this type of procedure requires meticulous skill expertise and someone you can feel has your best interest.  Best, Dr. Emer.
