BBL plastic surgery questions answered with Dr. Kenneth Benjamin Hughes

A: Does my body have enough fat to make a big butt with a BBL? I have had great success with BBLs for thinner women, but these surgeries are not easy. Maximal fat must be harvested without creating any contour deformities. If the waist was smaller at one time, the waist can likely be reduced with liposuction to those same measurements or smaller provided the muscular and facial integrity has remained the same. There are a lot of women who can get nice results from the BBL despite thinking that there is not enough fat. Schedule an email, Skype, or in-office consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in thin patients. I perform about 500 BBLs each year, and this procedure is the most surgeon dependent plastic surgery procedure.

A: 6 weeks post BBL: Do I have fat necrosis? What can I do to ensure it doesn't worsen? Hello, thank you for your question. It is far too early to determine what is your final result will look like.  Please give yourself more time, follow the instructions of your surgeon A: Could 2 small under-skin bumps on my lower back be serious after BBL 6 months ago? Hello, thank you for your question. It is hard to tell without photos or an in-office exam.  Your best advice will come from the board certified PS who performed your BBL.  A: If I’m 229lbs and 5’7 with a BMI of 35 can I have aggressive lipo with a BBL? Hello, thank you for your question. Based upon your height and current weight, your calculated BMI is 35.9 Overall medical health and suitability of the procedure are just as important as the BMI. In my practice I look for a BMI approximating 30 to lessen the risks of complications during and after surgery and to enhance the results of the procedures. A BMI of 35 is probably the upper limit that a plastic surgeon would consider for this procedure. It is best to be within 10 pounds of your weight goal for three months prior to the BBL. A: I feel like my bottom cheeks are hanging out. How can this be fixed? Hello, thank you for your question. It is hard to give a recommendation without photos. Schedule an email, Skype or in-person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon for proper evaluation. A: Do you think I’m able to get a nice looking butt with a BBL? Hello, thank you for your question. It seems like you can benefit from a BBL, fat can be taken from many different areas (abdomen, sides, back, bra rolls, thighs, arms, etc) depending upon the areas of excess and what your goals may be. Most patients get an immense benefit with maximal liposuction of the abdomen, sides, and back to obtain the smallest waist possible and then maximal fat transfer to the buttocks and hips. The goal is to transfer fat from areas where you find it displeasing to areas in which you would like more volume. I recommend you to schedule an email, Skype or in-person consultation with a board certified  surgeon for proper evaluation.
