The Brazilian butt lift (BLL) and the tummy tuck are two popular procedures that can help create a flattering hourglass figure. Some doctors perform these two surgeries simultaneously. However, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Victor Perez believes it’s in your best interest to do them separately.
The main issue is that undergoing these procedures at the same time can cause difficulties during recovery. You need to sleep on your back for some time after a tummy tuck. However, a BBL requires the opposite. Laying on your back after a BBL can place pressure on the treatment area and diminish your results.
Having a tummy tuck sometime before or after your BBL is a great way to achieve all your body goals. A tummy tuck can give you a flatter stomach by removing excess skin and fat while providing muscle tightening. Meanwhile, a BBL takes stubborn fat from other areas of your body and uses it to give you a fuller, higher, and rounder backside.
Am I a Candidate for These Procedures?
Many people are excellent candidates for a tummy tuck and a BBL. These procedures may be a great fit for you if you are in good health and near your goal weight. They are particularly popular with women who have gone through pregnancy or major weight loss.
Still, a tummy tuck and a BBL are not right for everyone. For example, patients who have a BMI over 30 will need to lose weight before surgery to ensure a safe experience and optimal results. And patients who have unrealistic expectations for these two procedures may not be good candidates at all.
