Does A Mommy Makeover Include A BBL?

Today we are going to talk about the collection of surgeries and procedures that can be done during a mommy makeover. We are going to answer a question we hear quite frequently: “Does a mommy makeover (MM) include a Brazilian butt lift? The short answer is that it depends on the circumstances, and we will explain in further detail.

What Is The Purpose Of A Typical Mommy Makeover?

Going through a pregnancy and having a baby are life-changing events, but they can also cause many undesirable changes to a woman’s body. While happy to be a mother, many women are upset about these physical changes and no longer feel like themselves.

Some of the changes many women experience include:

  • Damage to their abdominal muscles can affect their posture, cause their abdomen to protrude long after their baby is delivered, cause back pain, and cause issues with urinary incontinence;
  • Sagging or deflated breasts. Pregnancy and nursing can cause a significant loss of volume in the breasts and result in them hanging down further than normal;
  • Many women experience an increase in localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, especially around their midsection;
  • Some women experience damage to their labia during childbirth that can cause lasting side effects or change the way their genitalia look, making them unhappy.

A mommy makeover can correct many of these changes and boost their self-esteem. The typical MM includes a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction, which are meant to correct the top three aesthetic changes a woman experiences after having a baby.

The best thing about a MM is that it is customized for each woman to cosmetically correct and refresh their areas of concern. Women may choose to add a labiaplasty to correct damage to their genitalia or dermal fillers and Botox to refresh their faces and remove fine lines and wrinkles. Some may desire to include a BBL in a mommy makeover or some other procedure.

Does A Mommy Makeover Include A BBL?

A traditional MM does not include a BBL, but that does not mean that one of the other procedures could not be traded out to accommodate this request. The customary MM usually takes between 4 and 6 hours to complete, depending on the extent of correction needed. Extending surgery time beyond this window increases the risks for infections, blood clots, respiratory issues, and more.

Many women ask if they can add a Brazilian butt lift to their mommy makeover in an effort to get the shapely figure they have always desired. While combining the stomach, breast, and buttocks surgeries can produce dramatic results, most cosmetic surgeons would agree that combining a few major surgeries and liposuction (tummy tuck, breast augmentation) could be done in a safe and reasonable amount of time, but if you desire to add a BBL in addition, the surgeon will have to determine if adding the BBL will pose significant additional risks. It will depend on your specific circumstances and the surgical team.

Including A BBL In A Mommy Makeover Can Present Special Difficulties

The BBL takes fat harvested during the liposuction procedure and after a purification process injects it into the buttocks to create curves and add volume.

Additional Recovery Time

The mommy makeover already involves several procedures that require a significant amount of recovery time. When a BBL is added to the mix, it can make the recovery time even longer, so if your job involves a lot of physical activity, you may need to take additional time off from work.

Additional Discomfort

For the first several weeks following a BBL, you will not be allowed to put any pressure on your buttocks, so sitting or lying directly on your backside will not be possible. The transplanted fat needs to be left undisturbed so it can graft properly into its new location. After getting a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck, you won’t be able to stand up straight or sleep on your stomach. The challenges of trying to find a comfortable position can make your recovery extra rough and prevent you from getting the rest you need.

Increased Risks

The BBL has risks of its own, even without pairing it with other major surgeries. Some of these include:

  • Blood clots;
  • Fat or tissue necrosis;
  • Fat embolism (fat is accidentally injected into the bloodstream, travels to the lungs, and can cause death);
  • The development of stretch marks.

A third advisory was published in 2022 as a combined effort between many different plastic surgery associations regarding fat grafting and the BBL procedure. This advisory once again warns of the risks of the procedure and stresses that these risks are higher than those of other popular cosmetic surgery procedures.

If you are considering adding a BBL to your MM, ensure that your surgeon is an expert in performing the procedure and is board-certified. A surgeon who is inexperienced in performing a BBL may not have the skill required to inject the fat into the precise locations required for safety.

What Are The Positive Aspects Of Including A BBL In A Mommy Makeover?

When looking at the upside of enhancing your mommy makeover with a BBL the most obvious point is that the results are going to be dramatic. If you have always wanted a curvy figure but your buttocks have a flatter appearance, a BBL can enhance their look with some added volume. Adding volume to the buttocks can create seamless natural natural-looking enhancements since they are in close proximity to the waist and back.

Also, since liposuction is already included in a traditional MM, the surgeon should be able to harvest enough fat for the BBl. Additionally, combining procedures means the patient only has to go under general anesthesia and through recovery one time instead of twice. Also, it may be slightly more cost effective because certain fees will not have to be paid twice and it will not require an additional extended time off of work.

Is Combining A Mommy Makeover With A BBL Right For You?

A MM with a BBL may not be the best option for every patient. There are situations where this is an excessive number of surgeries to combine into one session. Your surgeon may determine that it would be unsafe or the surgery would take too long to perform if a BBL was added to your MM. They may advise you to split these procedures up into two separate surgical procedures. However, there are instances when a mommy makeover and a BBL would work well together. Your specific circumstances and the expertise of your surgeon will determine if this is possible.
