There is no weight requirement. Brazilian Butt Lift is about body sculpting.

Fat from other areas of the body such as the hips, flanks love handles back thighs is removed, then processed and transfered to the buttocks in the areas desired, enhancing body proportions.

Your photos and exam will help to determine that. Seek a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of these procedures, has great reviews and photos, and is an expert in this field.

There is no weight requirement for a Brazilian Butt lift. The most important part in planning the surgery is being very open with your plastic surgeon about your personal goals and how you would like contoured shape and size of your butt to be after the surgery. In our practice, we feel that it is essential to use patient photographs and digital morphing software to help communicate with the patient. This software allows us to give you an idea of what it could look like after surgery and also helps us understand what your goals are.

For some of our thinner patients, we may recommend that the gain 10 to 15 pounds before surgery so that they can have enough tissue to achieve the result that they want. Again the most important step in planning your surgery is to discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon and confirm that they are achievable.

Hi there-

There is not necessarily a minimum weight for the procedure; rather, what is necessary is that you have adequate stores of subcutaneous fat in excess in areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, and thighs.

As long as you are healthy enough to have the surgery, your goals and expectations are reasonable, and you have fat available, you should be a good candidate.

Here's a little advice on finding a good plastic surgeon:

Its more about your proportions than your weight

The procedure is designed to improve the fullness and curve of the buttocks, often while sculpting or reducing the waist. So it depends on the amount of fat you have in those areas.

I have found that patients with some body fat are much better candidates than thin individuals simply because the waist can be narrowed and more fat can be obtained for the buttocks.
