Can I Do Buttock And Hip Implants And BBL Surgery At The Same Time?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m interested in having a hip and butt implants and BBL. I’m very petite with an awkward shape. I’ve got flanks, a big belly and hip dips. I don’t have enough fat to get to the size that I’d like to be which is why I’d like butt and hip implants as well as a BBL. How much would this procedure roughly cost? And if so how should I pay? Hope to hear from you soon.

A: With some abdominal and flank fat available for harvest that is usually applied to the hips as a primary augmentation effort or to contour around buttock implants that are concurrently placed. Buttock and hip implants are almost never done together as that is too hard of a recovery and the risk of infection/seroma formation is very high with four body implants placed in the same anatomic region. Based on your description you would be better served by hip implants (as hip dips rarely get solved by fat injections) and invest all the fat into your buttocks. While the buttock size the fat creates may be inadequate, it would at least better prepare the area for placement of buttock implants later.
