When considering a Brazilian butt lift, it’s common for many people to ask whether a tummy tuck can be performed at the same time. While this is certainly possible and may even be ideal for some, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when deciding if a combined procedure is right for you.
When to Combine Procedures
The Brazilian butt lift has an interesting history and has become a very popular cosmetic procedure. During BBL, your cosmetic surgeon removes fat from one area of the body and relocates it to the buttocks.
As a fat removal method, liposuction is an integral part of the BBL process. If fat is removed from the abdomen and love handles, those with loose belly skin may want to add a tummy tuck to achieve a tighter, more toned look. When this is the case, performing a Brazilian butt lift and a tummy tuck simultaneously can provide excellent results in the right candidate.
When Waiting Can Be Beneficial
Although a combined Brazilian butt lift and abdominoplasty can yield a very nice outcome, some people find that the recovery period can be more involved when both procedures are done at the same time.
Performing a Brazilian butt lift and a tummy tuck simultaneously can provide excellent results in the right candidate.
The primary concern is that these two surgeries target opposite sides of the body, which requires that the majority of your recovery be spent lying on your side. While the recovery time itself may not necessarily be lengthened, it could feel mentally longer or more frustrating due to this positioning limitation.
If you’re thinking about combining a BBL with a tummy tuck, consult with Dr. Andan who has considerable experience performing both of these procedures. They can advise you as to what’s best for your individual situation.
