You can get a BBL now but usually pregnancy negatively affects your results. However, it is impossible to say how they will affect your results. Usually, pregnancy can cause fat and loose skin to accumulate in your midsection, expanding your waistline. It also could widen your hips. These are typical and may or may not occur to you.

The only thing is that liposuction does reduce the number of fat cells you have in the treated area, so you'll be generally leaner with weight gain than if you don't have the surgery at all.

BBL before pregnancy

If you want a Brazilian Butt Lift, you don't have to wait until after you have children.  In fact, its easier to get a better result from liposuction on your belly, before pregnancy.

This is really a personal decision. Those of us who specialize in BBLs usually find that when done correctly, the result from a BBL should last forever and this shold not change much with pregnancy. You should schedule an in-person consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in this procedure. They will be able to evaluate your shape and amount of fat you have to donate and give you a recommendation.

Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery after Pregnancy

There are no specific times or ages for a patient to undergo a Brazilian butt lift. Most patients wait until after they’re finished having children because additional pregnancies can cause weight fluctuation that impact plastic surgery results. However, it is important to first meet with a board certified plastic surgeon in a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate. Since Brazilian butt lifts use fat transfers, each patient must have a sufficient amount of fat that can be transferred to the buttocks.

There is no optimal time to have this procedure. You need to be examined to see if you are a good candidate

At your height and weight, I doubt you have enough fat to make a difference. You need an in person consultation to tell for sure.

Being 28 years-old should I get the BBL now or after pregnancy?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

BBL can be performed either before or after pregnancy. Many of our patients are in their early twenties who have not yet had their pregnancies. Having said that, if you plan to get pregnant in the near future I would hold off doing the BBL until after your pregnancy. You also will need to be examined to make sure that you are  a candidate for the surgery.
