When fat is harvested for BBL, the SmartLipo laser is used after the harvesting
The purpose of the laser in any laser lipo procedure is to help the skin shrink down by passing the laser through the superficial fat near the skin. If fat is being harvested for fat transfer, the superficial fat is lasered after the harvested fat has been removed. Common sense.

Smart LIpo for Brazillian Butt Lift?
Please tell me that your surgeon is not seriously planning to use Smart Lipo to harvest fat for your Brazilian Butt Lift. Smart Lipo, or laser liposuction, works by destroying your fat cells. In order for a Brazillian Butt Lift to be successful one has to transfer living fat cells into your butt. If a laser is used to harvest fat for your Butt Lift then you will not get any living fat cells transferred and the procedure will fail.
Is the surgeon you are seeing certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery? I think you need be looking for another surgeon.
Smartlipo and Fat Transfer
We obviously do not want to melt or kill fat cells that we are planning to use for a fat transfer. On my fat transfer cases, I inform the patient that I will not use the laser to melt the fat prior to suctioning. However, after the fat is harvested, I do use the Smartlipo laser on the treated areas for the skin tightening benefits.

you cannot inject smartlipo fat as it destroys viable fat cells for transfer. Smartlipo can be done after the cells are harvested however.
Fat transfer with smart lipo
Smart lipo is an excellent tool for doing liposuction It melts the fat and causes increased skin shrinkage compared to other forms of fat treatment however when you use it it does he eat the fat so much that it damages it . This damaged fat is not suitable for transfer in a BBL Sometimes the smart Lipo can be used after the fat is harvested . However most of the time this is not possible because all of the fat that is removed is necessary for the transfer . Doing the laser lipo after removal of all the fat and fluid risks damage to the skin . Therefore in most cases smart lipo is not used and is actually contra indicated for a BBL
Keeping the fat healthy for transfer
If laser is used during the sculpting that will eventually lead to fat transfer, then the laser is commonly used after the fat removal. In this setting, the purpose of the laser is to provide stimulus for skin tightening not to melt the fat.
A special technique of liposuction is performed to harvest fat. Once harvested, the fat is reinjected into the buttock for the BBL. See the link below for more information.
