Is It Safe to Get a BBL if You Are on Meds?

I was wondering if it's safe to get the Brazilian Butt Life while taking medications? I have Crohn's Colitis and don't want to risk my health any further but I am very unhappy with my flat-nonexistent booty. From my understanding, the procedure consists of taking the natural fat from the body and putting it in the buttox. If they can do this for the bottom, why can't they do this for breasts?

Thank you for the question.  Assuming the inflammatory bowel disease is well-controlled, elective plastic surgery is not necessarily contraindicated.

You are, however wise in being cautious about undergoing elective surgery given that you have an inflammatory bowel condition. As you likely know, some of the medications used to treat autoimmune disorders such as  inflammatory bowel disease are anti-inflammatory medications;  their use may increase your chances of infection.

  I would suggest that you   communicate your goals with your gastrointestinal physician  who knows you best. He/she, will be able to evaluate your “risk profile” much better than online consultants will be able to do. Then, your gastrointestinal physician will be able to communicate with your  chosen plastic surgeon in regards to optimal timing of the breast augmentation surgery;  perioperative management of specific medications may also be part of this communication. Best wishes. 

Brazilian Butt Lift and Medications

Brazilian Butt Lift can be performed while on most medications.  The problem is that many of the medications for Chron's disease specifically decrease your ability to heal wounds and increase bleeding risks.  Therefore, you most likely will have to stop the medications.  I recommend calling your GI doctor and discussing elective surgery on the medications that you currently are taking.  Fat can be transferred to the breast as well if you are interested.  Good luck.

Brazilian Buttlift and Crohn's

   Crohn's, if well managed without steroids, does not necessarily preclude a Brazilian buttlift.  Fat can also be transferred to the breasts.  Find a board certified plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlift procedures each year.   Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

If you are considering a Brazilian Butt Lift and are on medications, be certain to inform both your plastic surgeon and your regular medical doctor about your medications and your intent to have the procedure.  In most cases patients on medications can proceed safely with the Brazilian Butt Lift, but be sure to get clearance from both doctors.  Best wishes.

Thank you for your question, I would advise you to talk in person with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, tell Him/Her what type of medication your taking and talk about your concerns. He/She will let you know if you would be a good candidate for the procedure. And how would you go about taking your medication before and after surgery.
