Laser lipo and BBL

One year between procedures should be plenty of time but the ultimate decision is between you and your plastic surgeon.  However, one thing that concerns me is "laser lipo and BBL" - if that is what you underwent initially, i'd be curious to hear why you need another BBL - is it because a large percentage of the fat did not 'survive'?  A laser applied to the fat to be harvested is not a good idea as this fat will be destroyed by this process and the transfer will not be successful.

If OK with your plastic surgeon, one year should be a good time to wait before having it done. That should allow for the scar tissue to improve.

Hi there - that should not be a problem.  1 year in between the two procedures is plenty of time for the tissues to recover and the scar tissue to soften.
