Mommy Makeover and Brazilian Butt Lift

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m wanting to do a Brazilian Butt Lift lift. Can that be done at the same time as with a Mommy Makeover?

A: A Mommy Makeover (breast and abdominal reshaping) and a BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) can be done at the same time but it create a very difficult recovery. It would all depend on what the exact Mommy Makeover procedures need to be and whether such a combination may negatively impact the results of any of the three procedures. For example if the Mommy Makeover needs to include a full tummy tuck there will be less fat that can be harvested for the BBL to avoid compromising the healing of the tummy tuck incision. I would need to make that evaluation during an actual consultation or you can send me pictures of your body type for a preliminary evaluation.

While it is always desirous to maximize the number of operations one can do in a single setting for economy of recovery and economic resources, there are operative combinations that can ‘fight’ against each other and may even compromise their results. This needs to be looked are carefully in these type of body contouring procedures.
