Hi, I'm interested in getting a bbl but I'm not sure if I'm a candidate. I'm 5'5 and about 115-117lbs. I was wondering if I have enough fat to harvest to reach my goal. I also don't gain weight easily I included what I look like now and my inspiration.

Too Thin for Brazilian Butt Lift?
Dear Molly - unfortunately many patients seeking buttock augmentation are also the ones who cannot have it...because they have so little body fat. You seem to have some extra fat in your flanks and abdomen. Lipo in these areas will enhance your hips, and although it wouldn't be a lot of fat, it might give you some nice enhancement.
Still not good candidate until you get at least 6-8 lbs more/ aun no eres candidata ideal hasta que ganes 6-8 lbs mas de peso
remember than BBL it is not only augmentation but also remodelation shape into your hips and upper butts but in your case you look so tiny and young i think you should wait for to get some 6 to 8 lbs more
deberias de esperar hasta que obtengas unos 6-8 lbs mas de peso para un mejor resultado
Candidate for Brazilian Buttlift
You may be too thin for the Brazilian buttlift, but your goal pics in the first picture are probably achievable. Alot of this depends upon the amount of fat on your back and sides, which is a bit hard to tell from photos alone. I typically liposuction 5 liters and transfer 1200 to 1500 cc per buttock. However, your goal pics probably have a differential of 400 cc or so from your current state. Therefore, I would only have to transfer about 800 ml per buttock.

Thank you for your photo's. An examination would be essential to determine wether or not your are a canadate. You may require a buttox implant especially, if you desire the large buttox appearance you have selected in some of your other photographs. Consider a consult with a member of the ASAPS in your area. They are experts in Body Countouring Procedures like BBL. Best,

You look too thin to be a BBL candidate. Just my opinion but you might seek in person consultation from surgeons who do this a lot and also ask about buttock implants which can be done regardless of your weight.
