Am I a good candidate for fat transfer to butt
Am I a BBL Candidate?
It appears that you are a good candidate for a BBL, where fat is harvested from areas of excess, processed and concentrated, and re-injected into the buttocks to restore a feminine curve. While 500cc of fat per side is ideal, I've had good results with as little as 300cc per side.
A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon can help you get more specific answers to you questions.

It depends on the butt volume you expect to have... If it's a mild augmentation, then Yes, you are a good candidate.
Thanks for your questions and your photos.
The answer for your question depends on what are your expectations when it comes to volume and projection.
You are a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift, and certainly 500cc of fat can be harvested from Liposuction and injected in your butt. Now, the question would be: will the augmentation caused by 250 cc of fat on each butt be enough to generate the bottom you have in mind? That is where a personal evaluation and thorough conversation with your surgeon would help you understand and realize how much can be achieved with the fat your have. If you're looking for a mild augmentation, then I believe your existing fat would be enough. If not, then there's always the option of small butt implants combined with some fat grafting to achieve the volume you desire.
Hope to have cleared your mind of this doubt. If you wish to converse more about this, feel free to contact me.
Take good care and good luck,
Dr. Fernandez Goico
