Questions about procedures
Brazilian Butt Lift
  • BBL & LIPO
  • IS THE BBL A PERMANENT PROCEDURE OR CAN YOU LOSE THE FAT TRANSFERRED?

    Once the fat "settles’’ it is permanent. Sure some of the initial size is swelling and some of the fat resorbs but by about 6 weeks you will see the approximate final volume of what is going to be there. Naturaly, there are changes as your weight fluctuates.

  • CAN YOU USE ANY SORT OF FOAM AS LIPO FOAM?

    The Lipo foam is not something really necessary, as long as your garment provides you with enough compression and it can be taken in as it becomes bigger to you when the swelling goes down. Now, if you do need the foam you can use it on your back, I recommend, and wear a t-shirt underneath your garment to protect your skin. Also, make sure the material of the foam you will use doesn't heat your skin so much, and try to be under fresh temperatures.

  • DO YOU NEED TO BE CERTAIN WEIGHT/SIZE FOR BBL?

    It's recommendable that you consult your preferred surgeon in person or send pictures of how you look now and what you want to achieve, so you can have a better opinion. There’s not certain weight stablished for you to have a BBL, but we must take into consideration the amount of available to use (fat being useful or not is something your surgeon will realize in surgery) and in which places it is located.

  • HOW LONG AFTER A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT CAN I SIT?

    I, personally, advise my patients to sit right away and it will not affect the results. Some doctors recommend patients not to sit for couple days, some others don't, due to the fact that doctors have different techniques. But, from y experience, there has been no inconvenience for starting to sit on your buttocks right after surgery.

  • WHAT SUPPLIES WOULD I NEED FOR MY BBL?

    These are the main supplies Dr. De Los Santos recommends her patients to have for a BBL surgery:

    1.Loose clothes. Example: maxi dress, sweats, button down shirt, etc.

    2.T-Shirt/tank top to wear under your garment.

    3.Box of baby wipes (to keep yourself clean)

    4.Kotex (menstrual pads). Thick ones. (To be placed under your garment to provide cushion and make you comfortable)

    5.Compression Socks.

    6.Baby pillow (to make you comfortable when you're sitting down)

  • HOW OR WHY DO SOME PEOPLE LOSE FAT AFTER HAVING FAT TRANSFER TO THEIR BUTTOCKS ?

    Losing some fat after a BBL is actually normal. This is because the buttocks absorb some of the fat that is transferred, and the rest settles to give you the projection and size increase, now, this vary among patients; in some cases there can be a lot of absorbing in the buttocks, which can cause you to lose most of the fat transferred and a not desired result, this cannot be controlled, since it is a natural reaction of the body.

    Besides the absorption probabilities, it can also happen that there's not enough muscle in the buttocks to retain the fat, therefore, not much of it can be injected or would stay. The reason why you see some patients whose buttocks get bigger after the healing process is because the body area in which you get the fat transferred tends to gain more volume than the areas where you got Lipo.

  • CAN A STAGE 1 DIABETIC PATIENT RECEIVE A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT PROCEDURE?

    Yes, a diabetic patient can receive a BBL as long as his/her medical condition has been controlled for several months before surgery. It must stay under control during recovery process and after that. I personally require a clearance from a Specialist to make sure the patient is healthy, and then take precautions so he/she can have a successful recovery. I also have my patient getting tested after surgery to confirm the sugar is still on good levels. So basically, it's about keeping diabetes controlled and you can have a safe procedure done

  • WHEN YOU GAIN WEIGHT DURING PREGNANCY AFTER YOU HAD A BBL, CAN YOU HIT THE GYM & LOOSE THE GAINED FAT BACK TO YOUR SMALL WAIST?

    Weight loss will undoubtedly help you return closer to your pre-pregnancy figure.  That being said, sometimes weight loss alone won't get the job done.  For some women, the growing uterus damages the rectus muscles, causing them to separate in the middle, leading to a little pouch that does not go away with weight loss.  If this is the case for you, don't fear as a mini or full tummy tuck would cure that. Sometimes, patients don't end up with too much fat on the abdomen, but they do have some extra skin, hopefully that's not your case, and if it is, then it's up to you to get a touch up or not.

  • ON A SCALE 1-10 AND TEN BEING THE HIGHEST, WHAT IS THE LEVEL OF PAIN I WILL BE IN AFTER BBL?

    Every recovery experience is different. Some patients say they experience a lot of pain, some others say they don’t even feel uncomfortable. Sincerely, Lipo is not a too complicated process. Patients use to complain about swelling, but it is more discomfort than pain.

  • ANY SUGGESTIONS OF GETTING RID OF DIMPLES AND LUMPS ON BUTTOCK WITHOUT REDUCING SIZE?

    Fat transfer helps to fill in the dimples a little bit, but they won't go away completely.

  • BBL AND FACIAL PROCEDURES AT THE SAME TIME? WILL IT COST LESS?

     It depends on what facial procedure you're requesting. Example: the Lip Reduction and Eyelid Lift can be done along with the BBL if you're a healthy candidate. Now, a lower cost for getting several procedures at once is something that varies depending on the Doctor you choose.

  • CAN I GET LIPO/BBL RIGHT AFTER I HAVE MY BABY OR HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT?

    It's a must that you need to wait, at least, 6 months after giving birth before going under any elective surgery. Doing it right away is too risky. Give your body some time to recover first. To have a BBL you need to be healthy, maybe you won't be too strong right after having your baby.

  • SMOKED MARIJUANA AND CIGARETTES 10 DAYS BEFORE BBL. SHOULD I BE CONCERNED?

    Smoking days before your surgery is something that nobody should do at all. In fact, smoker patients (that's what Dr. De Los Santos recommends to her patients) should pause it, at least, 2 months prior surgery, and until a month after surgery (this time frame can vary).
    I don't know for how long you've been smoking, but I recommend you to consult a Specialist before your surgery, to check your lungs and make sure you're healthy for this procedure. It would be good for your Surgeon to have a clearance before proceeding to operate.

  • HAD A TUMMY TUCK WITH LIPO IN JANUARY. CONSIDERING A BBL A YEAR LATER. WILL I BE SATISFIED WITH MY RESULT WITH SO LITTLE FAT?

    The satisfaction with the BBL will be based on your expectations and what you have to work with. If you don't want something ''big'' (which is relative) you should be fine; but it's better if you send picture to your preferred surgeon or have a consultation in person to discuss it and get certain opinion.

  • WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU GET A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT, IS IT A MUST THAT YOU GET A TUMMY TUCK AFTERWARDS?

    A Tummy Tuck is not needed for all the patients who get Lipo. Tummy Tuck is mostly recommended for patients who need muscle tightening after having kids, have a hernia, or those who have excessive/saggy skin on the abdomen or could end up having excess of skin after surgery Lipo. There's no need for you to get a Tummy Tuck if your Doctor doesn't consider you have these problems I mentioned. If it is the case, what I usually do is to combine both procedures, focusing on tightening the abdominal muscle and doing the more Lipo on the sides and back; as long as the patient qualifies for it.

  • MIXED PROCEDURES WITH BREASTS
  • SHOULD I GET A TUMMY TUCK AND BREAST LIFT? HAVEN’T FISNISHED PREGNANCIES.

    What I recommend to my patients is to wait after finishing pregnancies before getting a Tummy Tuck. It's true that many patients don't have drastic changes if they have a baby after a TT. But you can't really guess if you will be one of the lucky ones. Another thing is that a TT limits your abdomen because of the muscle tightening, which can possibly interfere with your pregnancy development, but this is not something too common.

  • MASSAGES AFTER MOMMY MAKEOVER?

    Tummy Tuck and Liposculpture always require massages, in fact, without massages you have no guarantee of good results. You need this treatment to avoid lumps and hardness on the areas you get worked on, and, also, to drain possible rest of liquid that might be left after your drain is removed. I always recommend my patients to start with the massages on the 5th day post-op, and to take at least 10 sessions of 30 minutes minimum, you can get more sessions if desired, like 15 or 20.

  • I'M LOOKING TO GET BREAST AUGMENTATION W/ LIFT, BBL, TUMMY TUCK, AND NOSE SURGERY. CAN I HAVE THESE DONE ALL AT ONCE?

    I, sincerely, don't recommend to get all these done at the same time. Every surgical procedure has it's own risk, getting many procedure done together, like the ones just mentioned would be just too much. I would recommend to do it in 2 or 3 rounds, depending on your health. My advice is to focus on the main areas first and leave the rest for a second round, this you should discuss with your surgeon to get a certain opinion.

  • GENERAL QUESTIONS
  • SHOULD I HAVE PREPPING TESTING? I’M 43

    An EKG isn't mandatory if you don't have cardiac history, but some Clinics have this policy that patients from 40 and above should have this test just for safety. But you shouldn't be scared, it's just the routine.

  • WHAT ARE THE BEST FOODS TO EAT AFTER MY BODY SURGERY?

    Usually, you won't have to go on a diet right away. You can eat regularly, just avoid unhealthy food (like greasy food) food. Try to eat things that give you strength because you may be anemic after surgery.

Tummy Tuck
  • TUMMY TUCK
  • I HAVE AN UMBILICAL HERNIA, AM I A CANDIDATE FOR TUMMY TUCK?

    Probably, yes, the recommended procedure for you would be a Tummy Tuck, but, still, is better to have a consultation with your preferred surgeon to discuss that. If it happens to be that you're eligible for Tummy Tuck, the hernia can be repaired in that same surgery.

  • HOW SOON AFTER BARIATRIC SURGERY CAN I HAVE A TUMMY TUCK, AND WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?

    You need to have stable weight for about 3 months after your surgery. That usually happens after a year post op. I have operated on post-bariatric patients and I recommend you to wait a year because your body will be going through changes and if you have a Tummy Tuck now you will probably lose more weight and get loose skin again, which will mess up the work. Now, after a Tummy Tuck I recommend 4 weeks of rest, after that you will feel much better, but the results will be more visible in 3 months.

  • HAD A TUMMY TUCK WITH LIPO IN JANUARY. CONSIDERING A BBL A YEAR LATER. WILL I BE SATISFIED WITH MY RESULT WITH SO LITTLE FAT?

Breasts Lift and Augmentation

  • BREAST
  • WILL SALINE IMPLANTS GIVE THE SAME LOOK AND RESULTS AS SILICONE IMPLANTS?

    They might look similar, but Silicone gives you a better result. I think the projection is better, and you don't have the risk of spilling, like it can happen with saline. I use Silicon Cohesive Gel, it doesn't spill or break (only if major shock at your chest happens).

  • TIME NEEDED OFF WORK? BREAST IMPLANTS

    I always recommend a minimum of 4 weeks off after Breast Implants. Now, if you won't be doing significant movements that can affect your healing, and your recovery process is quite successful, you may go back to work a little earlier, if your preferred surgeon advises so.

  • DO YOU LOSE THE CURRENT SIZE OF YOUR BREASTS WITH A BREAST LIFT WHEN NOT GETTING AN IMPLANT?

    After a Breast Lift your breast will get smaller, How smaller it will be will depend on how your breast is right now (meaning how much skin/muscle/fat you have). Depending on what you have and what you want to have, you can consider to get implants in order to have fullness.

  • RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES FOR A BREAST LIFT?

    You just need a Support bra with clips on the front, these ones are easier to put on and take off

  • HOW CAN I DECIDE BETWEEN FAT GRAFTING TO THE BREAST OR A BREAST AUGMENTATION?

    In my particular opinion, you wouldn't have to chose between one and the other because I don't do fat grafting to breast. Why? because it's not the safest procedure to me, it actually interferes with the Mammary test because the fat transferred can get confused with Cysts; besides, it doesn't give results as good as the Breast Augmentation with implants. Implants give you better projection. I'm not saying you can't do fat grafting to breast, if you find someone professional who can do it for you, that's great if it is your desire. I just, particularly, feel more comfortable working with Implants.

  • IS ALL EXERCISE OFF LIMITS AFTER A BREAST AUGMENTATION?

    Exercising is always good for the body, now, after surgery, you just have to take some precautions so it doesn't mess up your results or cause you complications. It's recommended that patients wait about 4 weeks before to start exercising; and it's necessary to start with light workout (cardio) and then progressively go back to your regular routine.

  • MIXED PROCEDURES WITH BREASTS
  • SHOULD I GET A TUMMY TUCK AND BREAST LIFT? HAVEN’T FISNISHED PREGNANCIES.

    What I recommend to my patients is to wait after finishing pregnancies before getting a Tummy Tuck. It's true that many patients don't have drastic changes if they have a baby after a TT.
