Brazilian butt lift and stretch marks

Stretch marks will not improve with a brazilian butt lift.  A brazilian butt lift with autologous fat can sometimes improve dimpling in the buttocks as well.

BBL concerns

Hi rampage12. As others have stated, fat transfer will not improve stretch marks.  As far as whether you need to gain weight, that depends on the result that you hope to achieve.  Generally you need more fat harvested than the amount that you hope to retain.  If you're looking for accentuation of your curves then you're probably fine.  If you want more voluptuous curves then you might want to consider gaining a little more weight in a healthy fashion.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift will not improve stretch marks. There is no truly good treatment for stretch marks with the present technology. There is some fat in the flanks area, that can be liposuctioned and fat transferred to the buttocks.

Will a BBL Help the Appearance of Existing Stretch Marks?

Usually the stretchmarks will not be improved.  I would not recommend weight gain. You can get a great result with your current weight.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts 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.
