Experienced surgeons will always tell you to reach your ideal weight before you go in for NYC Brazilian butt lifts. More importantly, make sure that you have a lifestyle plan that will help you to maintain the same weight in the future. Yes, of course, you’re getting liposuction as part of your Brazilian butt lift. But then you inject it into your butt. The whole idea is to give you a bigger, rounder, and more shapely butt. The idea behind a butt lift is not to lose weight, but rather to reshape the body you already have. We can understand why some patients would be confused. The problem is that if your body significantly changes post-surgery, your butt is not immune. The size and shape will change, and your butt may not look the way you want it to anymore. Even if it were to stay the same size, the proportions wouldn’t be the same. Butt lifts do not generally require touch-ups later on. The results are permanent. But if you experience significant weight changes afterwards, you may need to come in again.
