Thank you for your question.

If you are not breastfeeding, I would recommend you wait at least 3 months after pregnancy to consider a BBL. This gives the body time to recover and hormone levels to get back to close to normal. If you are not back to your pre-pregnancy weight, I would wait even longer to try and shed those extra pounds before electing surgery. My advice to you is to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon so you can get a full body examination to see if you are a good candidate and to come up with the best plan for you. I hope this helps. Sincerely,

How long after having a baby should i wait for a BBL?

Thank you for your question. I suggest you wait about 6 months to allow you body to reach an stable weight and hormonal balance. That said, you definitely have to choose your surgeon correctly and make sure that he/she has the training and experience to meet your goals with absolute safety.  Best is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with specialized expertise in this procedure.

Thank you for your question.

I would recommend that you wait 6-12 months after you finish breast feeding to allow your body and hormones adequate time to balance out as well as lose the extra baby weight.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

How long after the baby one should get BBL?

It is a pleasure to answer your question. In my experience I recommend you to wait until your body is back to "normal". It usually takes 6 months for your body to go back to pre-pregnancy conditions (internal and external).  Waiting the right time, will help you and your PS make the better choice for surgery and achieve the best results. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Surgery after

It is recommended you wait at least 6 months after childbirth to undergo any cosmetic contour surgery. Waiting this time, will give you a more accurate result.

Scheduling your BBL after childbirth

6 months would be a reasonable minimum wait time between childbirth and your BBL. It's helpful if your body shape and weight have stabilized prior to the procedure.
