While you may have heard of people intentionally gaining weight so that they have more available fat to transfer to their buttocks, we certainly do not recommend this. If you gain weight prior to your Brazilian Butt Lift, you will need to maintain that weight gain post-surgery if you want to keep your results. This is because when we lose weight, we do not lose fat cells in one particular area. Instead, our fat cells all over our bodies actually shrink.
It is best to have this surgery when you have your ideal or preferred body weight because a consistent weight allows your plastic surgeon to best determine the amount of fat that needs to be harvested and injected into your buttocks. In other words, having an extra 10 kilos does not mean you will get better results during the surgery.
If you are interested in the liposuction/lipofilling procedure but feel anxious that you might not have sufficient body fat for a great result, do not attempt to gain excess weight before meeting with your plastic surgeon. Keep in mind that the amount of fat required for a flattering lipofilling result depends on the size of the patient, as it should be proportionate to your body. E.g. smaller women need less fat to reshape their body while larger women need relatively more. Make sure to consult with a professional to determine if your weight is suitable for you to achieve your goals with liposuction/lipofilling.
If you are not an ideal candidate for the procedure, there are other available options, such as butt implants, which can achieve similar and permanent results. We warmly welcome you to visit Essential Aesthetics and to speak with our team of experts, where we will determine which procedure is best suited to your needs and goals.
