Weight and BBL
At that height and weight, your BMI is 42, which many surgeons would not consider a healthy weight to undergo an elective cosmetic procedure. Many surgeons would recommend losing weight (diet/exercise or a bariatric procedure) to get to a healthy stable weight before undergoing an aesthetic procedure. I recommend consulting with a plastic surgeon to start the discussion, and get a sense of where they would like you to be before undergoing surgery (different surgeons have different thresholds), and they can recommend people or programs to help you get there.

Weight and surgery, some advices:
Trying to lose weight before a surgical procedure its a very delicate matter, since in many cases a restrictive diet can cause problems, such as anemia, electrolyte disturbances, decreased protein, etc ... retarding the healing process and damaging the surgery.
For these reasons, if your purpose is to lose weight, i recommend you have a BMI less or equal to 30.
In this regard, you must to have a support with a nutritionist, so you can achieve the desired goal, in the most healthy way, without incressing complications risks in the plastic surgery to perform.Kind regards
