I plan on getting a Brazilian butt lift and i know that i will need a tummy tuck but i dont want to get one yet because i plan on having another baby in about 2 years. What will my stomach look like after it has been liposuction-ed?

It really depends upon the individual, their age, their weight, how much fat is moved during liposuction to determine what the skin may or may not look like after the procedure.

Thanks for your question and for doing your homework with ASPS! Your liposuction results will depend on what your are starting with. Liposuction is very effective in removing the fat for use in the BBL but it may leave your abdomen with more loose skin. If you are already planning a tummy tuck down the road, you may just need to live with the extra loose skin until you have the tummy tuck done. The liposuction results will depend on your skin quality and the amount (if any) of skin tightening that happens after liposuction. Be sure to choose a board-certified ASPS surgeon in your area and together you can develop a treatment plan that is individualized to your body, your goals, and your timeline. Best wishes on a great result and speedy recovery!

Hello and thank you for your excellent question. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable. Be sure to have all of your questions answered during a face-to-face meeting with your surgeon, and review before and after pictures of similar patients whom have had this procedure. If you have any questions, call our office for assistance. Good luck!
