Enough Fat for BBL?
Firstly, I must say you have a great shape to begin with! Judging from the photo, your surgeon would have to be strategic as to where to get enough fat to transfer to your buttock for the "upside down heart shape" you desire. I would consider the lower abdomen, love handles, and perhaps thighs. Secondly, the surgeon needs an "artistic" mind to understand how to use a limited amount of fat to get the highest quality result. I definitely think it can be done successfully, as I have had to get creative with many patients with similar size, shape and request for BBL. In fact, one of my employees is your size and shape; I did her BBL a year ago, and she is constantly getting compliments!Best of luck!Windell Davis Boutte, MD
Thank you for your question. A consultation in person is necessary to make formal recommendation. However, it is important to note that the hour glass shape with a butt lift is both a combination of liposuction and the transfer of the lipoaspirate to the buttocks. The majority of your hourglass shape alone may be achieved with the liposuction alone regardless of the amount of fat that is available to be transferred. From your photographs most of the liposuction would be done right above your buttocks region; but, again a consultation in person is necessary. Good Luck!
