The ideal female figure is reminiscent of a curvy hourglass. Unfortunately, most women are not naturally born with this shape. As a result, more and more women turn to plastic surgery to give them the form they have always wanted.
When a woman gets breast augmentation and a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), she achieves a curvy, womanly shape. Breast augmentation gives full, perky breasts while the Brazilian Butt Lift delivers a voluptuous, lifted buttock.
Some overachievers looking to have a comprehensive makeover might consider doing their breast augmentation and Brazilian Butt Lift procedures simultaneously. But, is it safe to do so?
Is It Possible to Get a Breast Augmentation and Brazilian Butt Lift at the Same Time?
Combining plastic surgery procedures is not an uncommon practice. For example, the popular Mommy Makeover is a combination of operations that look to give a mom her body back post-childbirth. However, patients can’t merely combine any surgeries they want. Some combinations make more sense than others.
Theoretically, you can undergo breast augmentation and Brazilian Butt Lift at the same time. However, many plastic surgeons don’t recommend this route, as there are a few more negatives than positives to this approach.
What Are the Pros of Combining Breast Augmentation With a BBL?
While it is not always recommended, it is possible to combine these surgeries. Some of the benefits of this combination include:
- You only are put under anesthesia once. This is safer, as there is always a risk when using anesthesia.
- You will save some money by combining the surgeries.
- You will have a more shocking transformation by doing everything at once.
- You can take less time off work than if you underwent these separately.
What Are the Cons of Combining Breast Augmentation With a BBL?
The recovery for both of these procedures is extensive. When you perform both at once, your body may be slower to recover as it is healing two places instead of one. Ultimately, this could result in a more extended recovery period and more time off work.
Additionally, breast augmentation recovery wants women to avoid laying on their chest, while a Brazilian Butt Lift recovery involves not sitting directly on your buttocks. Therefore, recovering from these procedures may be difficult as you can’t comfortably lie on your front or back.
This is one of those scenarios where it is most likely worth the wait to stagger these procedures.
Ultimately, you should discuss with your plastic surgeon if combining surgeries is the best route for you. Your surgeon always has your best interests in mind and will steer you in the right direction. Most surgeons will recommend you wait six months between surgeries to allow your body to recover and heal.
