so as you can see in the photo, my outter thighs protrude more than my hips and butt which gives an unsightly view from behind. Ive always had big thighs and dont want to remove fat from them fearing i will lose curve. Is it possible to just add fat from my stomach to my top butt to even out the curve and create that heart shaped bottom? Or will removing fat from outter thighs have to come into play?

Rounding out your hips
It is hard to answer your question based on the one photo submitted. A side view would let me see your butt in profile and a front view would help evaluate your potential fat stores. A wish pic would also help. I typically inject about 600-800 ccs of fat in each side. In order to get that much fat to harvest you would likely need to gain 5-10 lbs. If you would be happy with a more modest result, you probably have enough fat to inject 200-300 cc in each hip.
Thighs and hips
In my opinion I don´t think that you should remove the fat from your thighs and just decide to harvest from your abdomen, waist and arms and transplant the fat cells in to buttocks.

I think yo may be able to leave the outer thighs alone. You would try to remove fat from the adomen, back and arms if there is sufficient donor fat in those areas. Good luck!

Brazilian Butt Options
Based on your picture it doesn't seem like there is enough fat to be extracted from your waist and back to be used for reshaping, however maybe from the abdominal area as you mentioned. An option I would suggest is to do a small liposuction on the outer thighs/ hip area and also use that fat for contouring. Hope this information is helpful.

This is difficult to assess from one photo, but most of the time the fat can be taken from the midsection, sides, and back and added to create a better shape.
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.
