Adequate fat for worthwhile Brazilian Butt lift.
From the photographs it looks as though you would have ample fat for a good result. Part of the final product is reduction of volume in the waist area that makes the transition to the buttock area more dramatic.
BBL and the issue of donor fats
Only an in-person consultation can determine if you're actually a good candidate for BBL. Take note that aside from donor fats, other anatomical factors will also dictate if you will reap its full benefits.
In general, BBL is ideal for patients with reasonably elastic skin (take note that it requires liposuction to collect donor fats); they are near their ideal weight and are reasonably happy with it; and they have no serious medical condition.
Provided that you meet the aforementioned requirements, based on your photos it appears that the lower back, abdomen, and flanks are good donor sites where liposuction will be performed. And by narrowing and contouring the waistline, your buttocks will also have better projection and shape.
Good luck and best wishes.

Thank you for your question.
From your photos, you appear to be an excellent candidate for Vaser Hi definition liposculpture with fat grafting to the buttocks. You should get a great result from liposculpture, giving you a more contoured and hourglass shape with better projection to your buttocks.
Vaser Hi Definition liposuction uses the concepts of negative and positive spaces in relation to the underlying bony and muscle anatomy to define areas such as your six pack and create an athletic looking physique.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
