Having performed surgery on many patients with sickle cell trait I suggest you  see a board certified plastic surgeon who has done a ton of Brazilian butt lift operates at a certified facility and ask him, or her, how many surgeries on patients like me have you performed?  All surgeries carry risks  so choose your surgeon carefully. Good luck.

Hi charityb09, Thank you  for your awesome question! Your bio is very helpful, however without the benefit of knowing your full health history and an in person exam it's impossible to say for certain.  I perform many BBL plastic surgeries on patients from all over the country.  I would recommend you have an in person consultation with a plastic surgeon with these credentials: *Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery -- The gold star symbol
*A member of the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) -- The circle symbol
*A member of the ASAPS (American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) -- the Queen Nefertitti symbol with a Triangle  *On faculty at local plastic surgery teaching program -- in our office we are affiliated with both Duke and UNC schools of plastic surgery Feel free to contact our office, it would be our pleasure to answer your questions in person. I hope this is helpful and wish you all the best in your journey.  My sincere best, Brian S. Coan, MD, FACS  CARE Plastic Surgery

Thank you for your question.When doing your research and scheduling consultations with board certified plastic surgeons, you have to ask them if/and where they have privileges at any hospitals in the area. Most surgeons have certain days and times blocked off so they can perform surgeries at the hospital for cases such as yours. Best of luck in your endeavors!
