Can I get fat harvested from my lower back to my butt after having CoolSculpting done on lower?
Dr. Dean Kane Q & A.
Q. I’m very interested in getting the Brazilian butt lift but after having cool sculpting done I worry the fat harvested might be ruined. Also it feels like it firmer under the skin where I had it done in the back wondering if I lipo will that look weird?
A. Up to 20% of the fat within the CoolSculpting applicator will go away. This leaves 80 plus% behind for use in fat grafting. Once the healing and the softening of tissues have occurred (6-12 months) you may consider lipocontouring this area to harvest the residual fat.
Several caveats to consider with your plastic surgeon:
Does the remainder of the fold along your back contain fat or is it mostly thick back skin and connective tissues?
Will the remaining fat be enough to provide enough volume for a Brazilian Butt Lift (ie., fat grafting to the buttocks)?
Will you need and do you have other areas where fat may be harvested from? Particularly since only 30 – 50% of fat grafted will survive.
I hope this has helped. Consider consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to examine you and review your options. Good luck!
