Don't gain weight.
You would need a live consultation to evaluate areas of liposuction/fat harvest for the procedure. I have been successful at harvesting enough fat , even in the most athletic women.
Although I believe you don't require any plastic surgery, if you want to consider having a BBL then I do suggest for you to gain weight. Fat needs to be harvested and transferred and you don't have enough weight to harvest from.

Previously asked about weight gain for brazilian lift fat transfer.. Definitely not.
If you transfer fat that is artificially enlarged, there is a much greater chance that these enlarged cell may die, and more fat in cc's has to be transferred to get the result you would like when you are at your final lower body weight, after loosing the fat that you gained for the fat transfer. We pinch the inner arm and forearm to see as an indicator the general body fat, or the fat that does follow the rules. It should be about 1/2". If it is greater than 11/2" the person is fat from their general body fat, and I usually recommend that they loose some weight before doing the lipo.
I can usually get about 600 800cc of fat from love handles and middle and lower back, when I take the time and remove up to 90% of the fat in these areas, even in people like you who are close to their ideal body fat.
Find a surgeon who is aggressive about fat removal for the lipo part of the procedure, leaving only about 1'2" to give a smooth contour. Removing this fat from the lower back and sides will also enhance the buttocks augmentation.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon 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.
