Based on your information you have provided as well as the photos it looks like you will be a great candidate for a BBL. With your body type I suspect you will have very pleasing results.

Do I have enough fat for a Brazilian buttlift?


You have enough fat to produce a very nice change with the right surgeon.

I perform about 500 Brazilian buttlifts each year, and this procedure is the most surgeon dependent plastic surgery procedure. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

It looks like you may be a good candidate for a brazilian butt lift, but an exam in person would be essential. Good luck.

I think you could get a great result with a Brazilian Butt lift!

You are a great candidate for this operation. You do have some extra fat in the abdomen and flankks. You also are not trying to get a "huge" butt. I think with your shape and goals, you will be very happy with the results of this operation.
