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.

Gain weight for BBL
I would recommend a liposuction to your abdomen, lower back, flanks (sides of breast) and a bit to inner thighs and a bit to inner knees. On your current weight I would be likely to transfer about 500-600 cc of fat per side, but it will match perfectly with your slender body.
Your waist can be as small as your muscle allows, in that area. So you have to know that is our limit: the muscle, any deeper. Your hip can also be enhanced with the fat gafting and then create the curves you are looking for.
You have to know if you gain weight, that fat will go everywhere, not only to the abdomen or areas which may be reachable with liposuction. And if you loose weight after the BBL, you will lose some of the volume. You will not lose the fat cells because those remain "alive" into your butt tissues, they only shrinks.
If your plan is to gain weight and remain in that weight, then gaining some lbs will be great for you and your result.
Feel encouraged. You will be loving your result.
