Do I Have Enough Fat For Buttock Fat Injections
The question of whether you have enough fat to harvest to inject into your buttocks can not be determined by height and weight measurements alone. It requires either pictures or an examination to make that judgment. Most patients require at least 1200cc to 1500cc of harvested fat to get enough concentrate for an adequate amount of volume injection.
Candidate for fat transfer
Even though you are close to your ideal body weight, you should still have sufficient subcutaneous fat to see an improvement in your abdomen, hips, thighs with liposuction. The fat removed can be transferred to the buttocks for more volume if even a moderate improvement. Of course a face to face consultation is necessary to assess your fat distribution and how it can be improved.

A photo and physical exam is needed to make any recommendations. The BBL procedure involves harvest fat from areas of your body where there is excess fat and injecting that fat carefully into the central zone of your buttock. In addition, it involves liposculpting the buttock to facilitate a more rounded look. The common donor sites for this procedure is your posterior waist/flanks, lateral thighs, back, waist, and anterior tummy. Please visit with a board certified plastic surgeon to learn more about your options.
