Is There a Size Requirement for the Brazilian Butt Lift?

For the doctors, I'm pretty thin but i still want the procedure done with a significant size improvement.

Brazilian Butt lift: minimum tissue requirements (least amount of fat to be transflerred)

In general, you will not see much benefit unless a minimum of 250 cc is transferred (500 cc total) which typically requires approximately 1000 cc to be aspirated.

Ideal body size for a Brazilian butt lift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

A Brazilian butt lift is a safe and effective procedure that combines liposuction of the abdomen hips waist and back and then fat grafting to the gluteal region. This is a safe and effective way to contour the lower body. The ultimate size and shape of the butt depends on the amount of tissue that can be added and sculpted to this area. This may be a challenge in thin patients.

In our practice, if a patient is borderline thin we may ask that the patient gain 5 to 10 pounds before the surgery so that we have enough tissue to help meet the patient's goals. If the patient is very thin, we may recommend other options such as a butt augmentation using solid silicone implants. Your best bet is the only work with a plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of plastic surgery and has great deal of experience in liposuction, body contouring, fat grafting, and working with solid silicone gluteal implants.

Hi there-

While there are no hard and fast requirements for proceeding with Brazilian Butt Lift, it is necessary that you have enough subcutaneous fat available to achieve your goals.

Only an experienced BBL surgeon could determine your candidacy after a careful exam.

No size requirements

There is no "size requirement" per se for Brazilian Butt lifting.  Part of the procedure relies on the improvement in waist tightening and lower back contour.  So, even though you may not have much fat to transfer, your buttocks will look larger from the tightening of the waistline above it.  Good luck!

Butt enhancement

When considering butt enhancement both the physician and the Dr. must consider the general body proportion.

The procedure should be considered as body contouring to enhance the body proportions and body curves. Both are complimentary to each other. You can add as much volume as the body can give you fat to transfer or even custome make an implant to the size you want to. The question is it complimentary to your body immage abd to other parts of your body/

Your surgeon should be an excellent surgeon with artistic eye to BEAUTY, and ethnic differences in the STtANDARDS OF BEAUTY

SIZING in Brazilian Butt Lifting (Fat Transfer to The Buttocks)

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

While SIZE consideration, PROPORTION and overall SHAPE considerations are MUCH more important in Frat Transfer Butt Augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift). You will NOT get a beautiful butt simply from the squirting of a large volume of fat into each cheek.

When analyzing any buttock for enhancement, I look at the present buttock and see what IS present, what IS MISSING and what needs to be added or improved to create the buttock that woman desires. ALL women want a sharp definition of the buttocks in the lower back with a well demarcated V valley as the cheeks diverge above the vertical crease. All want a higher dome posteriorly and filling of the lateral (trochanteric) dimple. But only certain groups want more side fullness.

Your present size is important but not as important as the other factors that contribute to the creation of the beautiful buttock. Creating that would depend on several factors including your surgeon's creative eye and artistic sense as well as on your wishes and presentation.
