Do you have to be a certain size for liposuction?
A: Liposuction is not a tool for weight loss. It is designed to remove stubborn areas of fat from people at or near their goal weight. It can also be used to harvest fat for transfer to other areas of the body like the breasts, butt and/or hips. Transfer to the butt is known as the Brazilian Butt Lift. I perform hundreds of BBLs each year in my surgery center outside Atlanta, Ga. I get my best BBL results on patients who are 15-20 pounds over their goal weight. We also offer medically supervised weight loss for patients desiring plastic surgery, but who still have a significant amount of weight to lose.
