Thank you for your question. There is no problem in having a BBL procedure while having braces on your teeth. What you should remove are elastic bands from your braces if you have any. You should follow your surgeon´s instructions on what you should not wear on the day of surgery like jewerly or acrylic nails. The most important thing is to choose your surgeon correctly and make sure that he/she has the training and experience to meet your goals with absolute safety. Don’t settle for less than a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with specialized expertise in this procedure.

Absolutely you can have braces while undergoing a BBL. There is not relationship between the two. You may want to schedule your next orthodontist appt. before your surgery so there's nothing to worry about for a month or so following your surgery. Best of luck.

Having dental braces is not a contraindication to having a BBL. You should consult with a Board Certified PS with lots of experience doing the BBL procedure. Good luck!

It should not be a problem to have a BBL with orthodontia in place.  Anesthesia can be given with braces on.
