What is the Ideal Weight for Liposuction and BBL Surgery?

One issue that often concerns patients is the ideal weight for liposuction and BBL procedures, which are popular aesthetic surgeries.

One reason this inquiry arises often is that your weight may not be appropriate for liposuction or BBL surgery.

The patients’ reactions to our statements that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery and that being overweight requires more than just the procedure, such as the response “I already had it done to lose weight,” motivated us to write this article.

Aesthetic and plastic surgeries, like liposuction, BBL, and tummy tuck, aim to enhance the body’s appearance. Liposuction, in particular, removes stubborn localized fat in areas like the abdomen, back, hips, legs, and arms, which cannot be lost through diet and exercise alone.

Experienced plastic surgeons can distinguish between subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. Liposuction is not recommended for patients with visceral fat.Even if liposuction is attempted on such patients, the outcome may not be successful.

What does internal adiposity mean?

Internal adiposity is the fat that accumulates around the abdomen and internal organs. This type of fat is called Visceral Fat and it serves as protection for the organs. However, excessive accumulation of this fat can lead to health issues.

Based on the provided information, it is evident that liposuction has no impact on internal fat and only targets subcutaneous fat.

Patients should maintain a certain weight range before undergoing aesthetic surgeries, such as liposuction, Brazilian butt lift, and tummy tuck, to ensure optimal results.

For liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), and tummy tuck surgeries, the patient’s body mass index (BMI) must be 30 or below. To calculate your BMI, use one of the many online BMI calculators available.

Can overweight individuals undergo liposuction and Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?

Individuals with a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or higher may undergo procedures such as liposuction, BBL, or tummy tucks. However, these procedures could have negative impacts on both the surgery outcome and the individual’s overall health. Overweight individuals who undergo these surgeries also face a significant risk to their life due to potential complications such as blood clots, embolisms, bleeding, and anesthesia-related risks.

Risk factors for liposuction, BBL, and tummy tuck surgeries include smoking, diabetes, heart disease, and a BMI above 30.

You can consult with our health assistants for the needed support. They can provide guidance on a range of topics including pre-surgery nutrition for liposuction, BBL, and tummy tuck procedures, as well as helpful self-preparation tips.
