Wt loss prior to bbl
I would not lose any weight if I were you prior to this operation. We need this raw material to get tissue from and shape you better, curvier. Once your grafts take and your waist is curvier, you'll have a different weight goal because of your new shape.
Brazilian Butt Lift Requires Enough Abdominal and Waistline Fat To Be Transferred
The answer to your specific question is that 700ccs is roughly 1.5 lbs. I am not exactly sure how that question relates to your concern about having enough fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift however. I am assuming you are trying to correlate your weight loss with the usual amount of fat that is injected into the 'average' buttock which is around 350ccs. per side. Weight loss and fat availability, however, are not an exact correlation. But at around 140 lbs at your height, you may already be suspect for having enough fat for buttock augmentation.
Fat transfer in a Brazilian butt lift
The Brazilian butt lift is a safe and effective technique that can improve the contour of your bottom and create a beautiful result. It is a combination of procedures that consists of aggressive liposuction of the abdomen hips and waist and lower back, separation and processing of the fat that has been collected, and strategic grafting to the gluteal area.
700 mL of fat is approximately 1 1/2 pounds. When we consult with our patients, we do not emphasize the numbers or amount of fat as much as the ultimate result. No one will know or care how many cc you have if you have a beautiful result. We emphasize to our patients that a large butt is not necessarily a beautiful butt. The beauty of this procedure comes from the way the new butt contour can complement the rest of your frame.
Be sure they work the plastic surgeon that is board-certified and has a great deal of experience in Brazilian butt lift, surgery, fat grafting, and liposuction.

My suggestion is not lose any weight. I have performed many fat graftings for buttock augmentation and I have found that the more fat that can be transferred the better. You should consider that between 20-30% of the transferred fat will get absorbed.
