Do I have enough fat for BBL?
Pictures or an examination would be helpful to make recommendations.

I appreciate your question.
I have done many Brazilian Butt lift procedures and specialize in body contouring. The amount of enhancement possible depends on how much fat can be harvested from your body.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Do I have enough fat for BBL? (photos)
It's not possible to answer your question regarding BBL surgery without photos of your buttocks as well as potential fat donor sites. But, in any case, you need to consult with a Board Certified PS with lots of experience doing the BBL procedure. Good luck!
Thank you for your question. It's difficult to give recommendations without pictures or an in person consultation. A board certified plastic surgeon may be able to find enough fat to transfer to your bum. If not, you might consider gluteal implants. You will need to have a consultation for precise recommendations.
It's hard to say without seeing your photos to determine if you are a candidate for a BBL but you can check your BMI and consult with a few plastic surgeons in person. You will lose about 30% of your injected fat in the first few months. Implants can be combined with fat transfer however implants feel firmer and have more complications.
