Ideally, I recommend being at or near your goal weight prior to having a procedure. Losing 20 pounds or more after surgery could change the overall aesthetic appearance of your results, although this will depend on the quality and stability of a person’s tissues.
Maintaining a stable weight is also important before a major body contouring procedure like a BBL because the body cannot “go two directions at the same time” — meaning that when the body is burning up its own fat stores during weight loss, physiologically it can’t optimally heal its tissues. The body is going through intense healing, especially in the first 6 weeks after surgery.
