Will I Lose Fat from Brazilian Butt Lift if I Do Butt Workouts?

Q:  I got a Brazilian butt lift done. I was wondering if I lose a little weight or do butt workouts, will I lose the fat that was injected into my butt?

A: I generally recommend that my patients allow 6 weeks recovery after Brazilian Butt Lift before they resume or start a workout regimen.  I do not anticipate that exercises that strengthen the gluteal (butt) muscles will diminish results at all.  Overall fat loss from a lot of cardio or from weight loss, will reduce the grafted buttocks, but this is proportional.  I am asked this question frequently so I like to stress that working out and weight loss after BBL will not cause the grafted fat to shrink any faster than the fat on other parts of the body.
