How much weight should I lose before a Lipo & BBL if I want to weigh 120lbs after surgery, but currently I am 150?

Hello, I am interested in doing lipo and a bbl procedure in late October. I currently weigh 150, but usually I am b/n 132 and 136. I am 5'7" tall. I would love to ideally be around 120 and preferably a US size 2 or max a 4 after my surgery. I am more interested in getting a small 24 inch waist, and a 35 inch hips, which is more of a cute bubble butt.

Thank you for your question. With information you provided above, your current BMI is 23.5 so you are at a healthy weight for surgery. From your photos, you appear to be an excellent candidate for Vaser Hi definition liposculpture with fat grafting to the buttocks.  You should get a great result from liposculpture, giving you a more contoured and hourglass shape with better projection to your buttocks. Vaser Hi Definition liposuction uses the concepts of negative and positive spaces in relation to the underlying bony and muscle anatomy to define areas such as your six pack and create an athletic looking physique. 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.
