Question
Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
BBL and maximum fat removal: can more fat be taken out?
limits of fat removal during liposuction
Feb 23, 2018
There are different limits imposed for safety reasons when it comes to the maximum recommended amount of fat removed during liposuction.  when performing a bbl - these limits are typically not increased.  variations based upon where the surgery is performed (hospital, surgery center, office, etc), your overall health, geographic location, type of anesthesia used, etc, can also influence and factor into the amount removed. discuss the specifics with your plastic surgeon based upon where and ...
What is the average recovery time of a tummy tuck?
recovery after a tummy tuck
Feb 23, 2018
In my practice, patients are usually back to work in two weeks - depending upon how strenuous their job is, light exercise at 4 weeks, and generally without any restrictions by 6 weeks.  i have patients wear compression garments - including when they return to work.  some patients recover faster - but this is the typical time frame.  discuss this with your plastic surgeon based upon their experience, their technique, and typical postoperative instructions and regimen.
How soon can I return to work after a breast augmentation with implants if I work a desk job?
returning to work after surgery
Feb 23, 2018
My patients are typically home from work for about 5-7 days, but this depends upon whether or not you are still requiring pain medicine, need to drive for work, etc.  you should discuss this with your plastic surgeon to determine what is safest for your specific situation. 
Is it a health risk to fly back home 3 days after my surgery?
flying after surgery
Feb 23, 2018
This answer depends upon the type of surgery you are having, type of anesthesia being used, and the expected recovery following these procedures.  it is best to review this with your surgeon.
Should I lose weight for my BBL?
weight loss for a bbl
Feb 23, 2018
You are at a good weight for a bbl procedure.  liposuction of the midsection can serve as the locations where fat can be obtained for the transfer.  good luck!
BBL, lipo with no tummy tuck?
pics needed
Feb 22, 2018
Without pictures and an exam it is not possible to give specific answers.  lipo removes fat but not skin.
I’m considering a tummy tuck but do you think a mini tummy tuck would be the better option?
mini vs full tt
Feb 19, 2018
Mini tummy tuck will tighten lower abdomen while full tt will tighten above and below belly button.  you have loose skin both above and below.  best to be seen in person for consultation to help determine based on your overall goals and health.
I have a small butt and was wondering if a Brazilian butt lift would give me a little more fullness
bbl
Feb 19, 2018
A brazilian butt lift can make the buttocks fuller and rounder.  lumpiness is rare, the scars are very small and often placed in areas hidden by underwear or a bikini.  amount of fat needed depends upon overall goals - it is difficult to determine this from your pics.  best to be seen in consultation for this.
For a fast recovery after a BBL can I take Arnica, Bromelain and glutamine together?
medications after surgery
Feb 6, 2018
Speak with your surgeon about this - as they know the specific details of your case, medications used during surgery and prescribed medications after surgery.  
Is it reasonable to need a tummy tuck already? Muscle separation 6 months after extended tummy tuck
another tummy tuck?
Feb 5, 2018
Without pictures or an actual examination, it is not possible to accurately answer if you will benefit from additional surgery.  in general, most patients do not have a second tummy tuck six months after having undergone a tummy tuck, but there may be different circumstances in any case.  consult with board certified plastic surgeons in your area to help determine this.  good luck!
My white blood count is too high. I'm having a BBL and full liposuction Monday. I have no infection
abnormal labs prior to surgery
Feb 5, 2018
Your lab results should be reviewed by your plastic surgeon and your primary care provider so they can determine the safest plan and course of action for you.
Lipectomy in 5 days and can't stop smoking, I've been informed it will effect my surgery, is this t
smoking and surgery
Feb 5, 2018
Smoking can increase your chance of a complication.  notify your surgeon that you are still smoking so you can discuss this with them.
My doctor is 7 hours away. How long before I would be able to drive home? What things will I need a
travel and surgery?
Nov 18, 2017
Without knowing your specific procedures, specifics of surgery (such as type of anesthesia, length of surgery, etc), and overall specific health history - it is not possible to give specific answers.  you should ask these questions and discuss them directly with your surgeon - they should know all of your specifics.
I was thinking about getting a BBL and also 360 lipo. Do I need to lose weight?
bmi and bbl
Nov 18, 2017
Your bmi, or body mass index, is currently between 35 and 36.  bmi is a ratio of weight and height.  the higher the bmi - the higher the potential incidence of complications.  many surgeons have bmi limits - above which patients may not be offered an elective cosmetic surgery.  the bmi limit does vary amongst plastic surgeons and specific procedures.  you may want to reach out to specific plastic surgeons you are considering consulting with to learn their particular bmi limits.in my practi...
Do you always need a drain after a Brazilian butt lift?
bbl - drain or no drain?
Nov 18, 2017
I do not use drains when performing a brazilian butt lift.  some surgeons do - but many do not.  some surgeons do not suture the incisions closed and allow for drainage - and some surgeons do suture the liposuction incisions.  there are many variations in technique and practices - you should consult with board certified plastic surgeons that perform bbls regularly and learn what may be ideal for your particular goals, health and specific situation.
