400 cc fat transfer

Without seeing photos, it is very difficult to say, however typically 400 cc will not be enough to make a noticeable difference. It is not uncommon to transfer 1000-1500 cc per side. Be sure that your surgeon is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in Brazilian Butt Lifts.

400cc BBL

Without an exam it is difficult to comment and without a photo it is nearly impossible to make an intelligent comment.  However, 400cc is not too much even if you concentrate the fat alot.  Some surgeons inject more volume by having the fat injected less thick.   So the final volume injected isn't so important as it won't get you the same outcome with different surgeons.  That being said, I have had good results injecting volumes as low as 500cc per side in the correct patient. This is why an exam and in person discussion is so important. So, find a plastic surgeon that you feel confident can give you the look that you are wish to achieve. Best of luck.

400 cc in each buttock

Without an exam in person, it is difficult to say how much fat would be reasonable for you.  400 cc is a not a lot in each buttock for most patients.

Will 400cc be enough for a brazilian butt lift?

If you are 5'6" 150 lbs, you could probably have 4 times that amount injected.  The main reasons for a revision are not enough fat liposuctioned and not enough transferred.  The least expensive BBL is the one that is performed only once.

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.
