I will be getting a BBL in 2 wks. Lipo on thighs, abdomen and flanks. Will I need a thigh lift or will the lipo suffice? (photo)

My surgeon has magic hands so I'm hoping I won't, if I do.. After the bbl I will be working on those arms but maybe I just might do coolsculpting...

Thigh lift with BBL?

Based on your photos, it looks like you are a good candidate for a BBL. It does not look like you would need a thigh lift. Realize, that you have some dimpling on your thighs that is not likely to be corrected with the liposuction. Best of luck.

BBL +/- Thigh Lift

One of the great features of the BBL is that it can provide a significant improvement in shape and contour without creating a lengthy scar pattern. On the contrary, most thigh lift techniques will result in a long scar.

In your case, I think it's reasonable to proceed with the BBL and evaluate the final outcome months later before considering a thigh lift. You may not need the lift. All the best with your upcoming procedure.

Do I need a thigh lift or just lipo?

After viewing your photos you are likely to do well with just a thigh liposuction as long as it is not too aggressive.
