BBL and weight gain

I do not usually recommend weight gain to my patients. It is best to be seen in person to be properly evaluated.

Candidate for BBL

Without seeing you in person, or photos, it is hard to say whether or not you are a good candidate for a brazilian butt lift. I perform between 6 and 8 brazilian butt lifts per week and it is uncommon for me to have one of my patients gain weight prior to surgery. My recommendation is to consult in person with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in this procedure.

The specifics would be hard to answer without seeing you.  However, I typically do not recommend weight gain, because most patients cannot maintain the new weight.  I liposuction models and thinner women frequently and even in 5'8" 120 lb women, I have gotten 700 cc per buttock.

Don't gain weight for a Brazilian Butt

I do not recommend gaining weight in preparation for BBL.  I have performed BBL on a lot of petite women and still find plenty of fat for transfer.  I would need a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for BBL.

It is not typical for people to be required to gain weight for a BBL procedure but without a personal consultation it is difficult to say. With photos you will get more tailored suggestions but I recommend consulting with a board certified surgeon who does many of these procedures.
