See what this patient looks like at her 6-week follow up appointment. She had a BBL with fat injections (a fat graft) to the outer thighs.
Tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift + Lipo 360 in the same operative session on a 52 year old female with a BMI of 35. I am able to perform this combination surgery despite the higher BMI in part because we use IV Sedation with a Board Certified Anesthesiologist instead of General Anesthesia.
In this video I talk more about Fat transfer, specifically, how long fat grafts last. If you frequent various plastic surgery blogs and portals, you might be aware there is a wide variation in the types of techniques that surgeons are using. Thus, there is a wide variation in their results, and a wide variation in their opinions about whether fat injections are permanent.
I often hear the question, “Can I have another procedure at the same time as the Brazilian butt lift?”
The answer is yes… and no, depending on the combination of procedures. The Brazilian butt lift already consists out of multiple procedures and while final results are dependent on your surgeon’s experience, skill, and technique, they’re also dependent on the patient following strict post-op guidelines.
Since the Brazilian butt lift results from a fat transfer, the question I get from most patients is whether they’ll lose the effect of the procedure if they lose weight after the surgery! The short answer is this: If the fat is processed and grafted correctly, you will not lose the effects.
BMI, or body mass index, is a surgical risk factor considered for candidates seeking a tummy tuck, a brazilian butt lift, and several other plastic surgery procedures.
In this video, I talk about BMI and what is required to be cleared for plastic surgery.
Dr. L. Rodriguez was one of 6 board certified plastic surgeons to serve on the ASPS Brazilian butt lift safety panel at The Meeting in Orlando, Florida in 2017. This video is a clip of one of the comments he made during the 45 minute presentation.
