Have you been looking into the possibility of a Brazilian butt lift in Tampa? Are you wondering if you’d be a suitable candidate? If you’re not at your ideal body weight yet, you’re probably wondering if you can have this procedure. If you’re overweight but still want a rounder, perkier butt, read on to learn everything you need to know.
The BBL – What Should I Know?
The BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) is a form of cosmetic surgery that enhances the shape and size of the buttocks. When carried out in conjunction with liposuction, it can contour the body even more. It can remove excess fat from the abdomen, lower back, and love handles. As a result, you can enjoy curves right where you want them. You’ll also have perkier buttocks.
What’s the Problem with A BBL If I’m Overweight?
If you’re plus-sized, you may be wondering whether you could be a good candidate for this surgery. There’s no single answer for everyone. However, for some women, the answer is yes, depending on their current weight. You should be aware, though, the final result may be different than that achieved by someone at her target weight.
That said, your surgeon will use your BMI to determine if you’re suitable for any surgery, including the BBL. Your BMI (Body Mass Index) uses your height and weight to see whether you’re within a healthy range. Of course, it’s only used as a rough measurement to see if surgery would be safe and suitable for you. The BMI has limitations since it fails to consider gender, age, body composition, or muscle mass. Normally, a healthy BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9. In an ideal world, you’ll have to have a BMI of under 30 to have any type of cosmetic surgery.
If your BMI is over 25, there’s a higher risk of complications post-surgery. These include problematic or delayed wound healing, excess fluid collection, slow recovery times, and DVT. If your BMI is over 30, your surgeon might advise you to lose weight before having your procedure. You should maintain that ideal weight for six months so your outcome will be optimal.
How Will My Weight Affect My BBL Result?
If you’re plus-sized, but your surgeon says you’re suitable for a BBL, be aware the procedure could be different. Your surgeon will use liposuction to try to make your waist as small as he or she can. He or she will do this by removing excess fat from the love handles and stomach. This naturally creates an hourglass-shaped figure with no need to graft fat into the hips and buttocks. In turn, you’ll require less fat injected into your buttocks to create the shape and size of butt you desire. Afterward, though, you should still see an excellent result. Your butt will still have an enhanced shape and size. Meanwhile, your slimmer waist and stomach will give you a sexier, more beautiful figure.
