Wait Time for 2nd Fat Transfer

I am sorry to hear about your course thus far.  I would recommend waiting at least 6 months to allow the areas of liposuction to soften and shape to stabilize.  Additionally, this gives the buttocks time to soften and be in the healthiest shape to receive fat grafts.

Thank you for your question .

There is no exact time for this procedure but i recommend at least 6 months, and what you should do while waiting is gain the weight needed to have the results you are looking.

Choose a board certified plastic surgeon who has done a ton of Brazilian Butt Lifts and has privileges to do this surgery at a local university hospital. This says his credentials have been checked out by fellow Drs. All surgeries carry risk, talk to your plastic surgeon and choose one wisely.

    The major reason for lack of success in Brazilian buttlifts is that not enough fat is transferred and not enough fat is liposuctioned.  I typically liposuction 5 liters and transfer 1200 cc to 1800 cc per buttock.   Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts and Brazilian buttlift revisions each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
