BBL Before or After Pregnancy?

Q:  Hi! I really really REALLY am in a dilemma- where I feel the BBL is something I truly want within the next 6-8 months. I absolutely… POSITIVELY would prefer to do this now, however god willing, I will likely attempt to experience healthy pregnancy and childbirth within the next 3-5 years. With my overwhelming desire to complete this procedure now, what are your honest recommendations (I will absolutely follow the recommendations of the physicians advice on this matter)

A:  If you had said you were planning a pregnancy this year, I would advise waiting until after childbirth, but since you are planning to have kids in 3-5 years, I don’t see why you can’t have a BBL now.  Neither liposuction nor fat transfer will affect your fertility and those surgeries do not pose a risk to future pregnancies.  Pregnancy does change your body.  One of the reasons many plastic surgeons counsel women to wait until after childbearing to have surgery is that pregnancy can “undo” the effect of the surgery. There is no predicting how your body will change during pregnancy and you may desire another procedure after you are done having kids.
