Do you think you need to gain more weight?

Ideal candidates are at a stable weight,  in good health , and have excess fat in some parts of the body and too little in other regions.  Gaining weight before the procedure is to no advantage and when you lose weight again the fat cells will shrink just like the donor site fat cells.  Typically, the transferred fat results in a significant increase in volume of the body site being treated.

Brazilian Butt Lift/ Fat grafting/Liposuction/ High Definition Procedures/Butt Implants

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!

Gaining Weight Before BBL?

Thank you for your question!  It is hard to tell exactly if you will need to gain weight or loose weight, without a physical examination of your body.  I suggest you seek a board certified plastic surgeon and have a consultation.  It is usually a good idea to gain weight before your surgery for maximum results for fat transfer.  Best of luck!
