How Many CC's Would You Think Would Fit?

I have always had a big butt but since recent weight loss I have lost most of it and I would like it back, I would like to have a big butt maybe 8-1000 cc I say this because I have heard its common to loose 35% , that would bring me to 550-650cc after loss of cells

Volume of fat retained after brazilian buttock lift

The amount of fat you will retain depends directly on the amount of fat that is transferred. Based on your photos, I feel it would be very difficult to even harvest 800cc per side. Although you will lose about 20-40% of the fat, you appear thin and this may prevent you from achieving the results you want.

Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a candidate for this type of surgery and for an estimate of the volume you can expect.

The amount that is required will depend on how much you have left in your body!  Anticipate approx. 20% loss of fat following fat transfer, at least that is how much I loose in my procedures.  You could also consider an implant, but it is not for everyone!
