Abdominal scars and Brazilian Butt Lift

Abdominal scars should be taken into consideration by your plastic surgeon prior to the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.  These are areas where he/she should be careful not to perforate the abdominal wall to avoid intra-abdominal injury.
Will your skin be super saggy?  Only if you have a lot of fat and a lot of fat is removed, and you are older and have lost skin elasticity.
