 I would suggest that you wait until you have reached your long-term stable weight prior to seeking consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate lots of examples  achieving the types of outcomes you would be pleased with. 

 Then, communicate your goals carefully. Learn about the pros/cons/risks/complications associated with the operations discussed. Achieving realistic expectations will be important as well.

Thank you for your question and for your pictures! I suggest you wait a healthy year before having any type of fat transfer after weight loss surgery. You want to first reach your ideal weight and then schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area.

Best of luck to you!

Thank you for your question, we regularly advice to wait at least a year after having a gastric sleeve, mostly because you will be loosing a lot of weight due to the procedure, and any fat transfer will be lost as well during that period. Once you have lost all the weight needed after the gastric sleeve we can do the procedure, however when loosing a lot of weight there's also loose skin, I would advice doing the tummy tuck along with the Brazilian butt lift for better results.

Once you get your sleeve, you need to wait until your weight stabilizes before you undergo other procedures. Good luck.

It is usually recommended to wait at least 6 months after stabilizing after the rapid weigh loss period this patients go through.
It varies greatly from patient to patient, but it is advisable to start looking into your options for reconstruction not sooner than 6 months after the bariatric procedure was performed.
