Combining a tummy tuck nd brazilian butt lift
The Brazilian butt lift involves the use of your own body fat to enhance your rear ends while the tummy tuck procedure is the surgical excision of the saggy skin and excess fat from your abdomen as well as tightening of the abdominal muscles.
Is it possible to have tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift at the same time? The straight answer is NO. A patient may consider undergoing both procedures but not necessarily at the same time.
Here are the reasons why:
When Brazilian butt lift and tummy tuck are performed on the same patient at the same time, the body will experience revolutionary aesthetic transformation.
For the tummy tuck procedure, the patient needs to be positioned on her back while Brazilian butt lift requires the patient to be on her front. Changing positions is not recommended during the same operating time.
Tummy tuck procedure also involves fat transfer to the hips wherein the patient is not allowed to rest on the tummy or sides. In Brazilian butt lift procedure, the patient has to avoid sitting on the buttocks or sleeping on the back for several weeks. This leaves the patient with no choice when it comes to resting.
The post-operative discomfort would be significant and the patient would find it impossible to get any proper rest.
If you are really interested to have both procedures done to your body, your surgeon will recommend you to have them at least six months apart.
