I'm scheduled for bbl but my surgeon estimates he could only transfer 400-500 cc's to each cheek since I had a TT last year and don't have as much fat in my abdomen. He will lipo abdomen, lower and upper back, inner and outter thighs. Will 400-500 cc's show a GOOD difference? Considering I am 5'1 and 152 lbs, shouldn't he be able to lipo more? Should I gain weight?
Will 400-500 Cc's of Fat Transfer to my Butt Be Enough for my Bbl? (photo)

500cc fat transfer
This depends on your goals. 500cc can be enough in some patients. Based on your height/weight you might have more fat available, but only a live consultation can determine that.
Do you have enough fat for Brazilian Butt Lift
From your photos it looks like you have more available fat than 400-500cc's. At 5'2" and 152 lbs I would estimate you could have a couple liters of fat to transfer, possibly more than can be used at one time. Sometimes more than one treatment can be done for maximal difference in which case I don't use all the harvest sites on the first procedure. I don't believe that 400-500cc to each cheek will make a very big difference given the current size of your buttocks. I don't recommend gaining weight. It looks like you have enough fat.

Fat for BBL
Looking at your photos, a good BBL surgeon should be able to get a good amount of fat. There is donor fat is areas otehr than your abdomen. You should be able to get 750 per side. Obviously this is impossible to say for sure without seeing you in person.

How much fat should be injected for butt augmentation in BBL
To get a perky, round, and full buttocks I recommend at least 600-900 ccs of fat injection into EACH buttock cheek. Obvioulsy, this depends on available fat, therefore, it is important to do large volume liposuction.
