I am planning on getting a BBL this year. I'm 5'6 and my weight fluctuates from 135-140 lbs. it usually hangs around 138. I have excess fat On my abdomin, it bulges at the top of my pants and my body is very square. Do I have enough fat to have a good amount of projection. I know a lot of the fat absorbs so I want to know of I have enough fat to be grafted and saved.

Provided that you are otherwise healthy, you look like a great candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift.  The combination of narrowing your waist and augmenting your buttocks can really improve your figure.

Based on your pictures I think you are a good candidate for a BBl. The BBL is performed by using liposuction to sculpt a beautiful abdomen and waist creating a better shape.  Then, it involves using the harvested fat to reshape the buttocks using a microdroplet technique so the fat grafts stay.  You can compare yourself to other patients of mine on a utube video. If you have any questions I would be happy to discuss it with you.

You are not only having fat grafting with the BBL but also body contouring and sculpting. You have ample fat deposits even now for the surgery. I would expect 80% of the grafted fat to be retained.

Removal of fat from the midsection, waist and back with re-injection of the fat into the upper outer parts of the buttocks gives a dramatic improvement to the female figure.

Conservative and proper injection of fat into the buttocks results in most of the fat surviving.

Please consult in person with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to making treatment decisions.

Look at Brazilian Butt lift as a body contouring surgery, not just removing fat from some areas and injecting fat to the buttocks.

You need to look at the buttocks, the fat distribution around the buttocks, like the flanks, the lower back , then analyze the abdomen, the back and the curves required then decide what shape body you want. Then fat is harvested from critical areas that enhance your buttocks like the lower back and the love handles. Then look at the abdomen, the back and the curves and decide with your surgeon what type of body enhancement you want, a s well as the buttocks enhancement.

Great Candidate for a BBL

It looks as if you are a great candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift. Please know that the way the fat is harvested and the choice of sites for harvesting the fat are crucial to the success of any fat injection procedure. 

In my experience, fat injections are permanent, so long as the surgeon harvests, processes, and injects the fat correctly and the patient follows post operative instructions. The post operative period is as important as the surgery.

The most important thing in this procedure is not to get the "biggest" butt, but to create the best looking waist-hips-butt area. It is as much about proportion as it is volume.
