Brazilian butt lift?

I think you are referring to a brazilian butt lift, and you may be an excellent candidate. Best to be seen in person.

Liposuction of the full abdomen and hips can really make a great improvement.

Yes, it appears that you are an excellent candidate for liposuction of the full abdomen and hips. Be sure to do it under local tumescent and with the microcanulas so you get the best results possible and have your doc stand you up and you turn several times during the procedure since it always changes when you are lying down vs standing up. That is just one reason local anesthesia is so much better and safer. Sincerely, David Hansen,MD

Candidate for lipo

95% of what I do is liposuction and I do it all under local anesthesia, outpatient. You are an excellent candidate and can expect a really good result, with the right plastic surgeon. Anch'io sono Italiano - ItaloAmericano, e parlo italiano benissimo.

You appear to be in great shape and should get a great result from some contouring with liposuction. Plan on being a little sore afterward but otherwise should be fine.Good luck, Dr T

Do you think I am a good candidate for ABS and hips lipo?

Yes, I think that liposuction would be reasonable.

Liposuction results are highly surgeon dependent. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of liposuction and liposuction revision procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
