For health and safety reasons, best to be at a BMI less than 30 or within 10 pounds of your goal weight and stable at that weight for 6 months prior to surgery for optimal results.
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!

Losing weight before surgery
Who then is a candidate to undergo a Brazilian depends on a lot of individual factors.
In particular fat distribution and other underlying factors such as excessive amounts of intra-abdominal fat, muscle separation from previous pregnancies and or skin laxity.
your photos show someone who does not have an underlying curved figure.
This is based on your musculoskeletal structure and not based on your fat distribution.
This will inherently limit the ability to create an hourglass figure by the use of liposuction with or without fat transfer. though some improvements are always possible.
it also appears you carry a substantial amount of intra-abdominal fat.
Without weight-loss your abdomen will still be protruding despite having liposuction.
I suggest having one or more in person consultations with board-certified plastic surgeon's to get a more accurate assessment if these may be appropriate procedures for you.
