With no other medical problems, the BMI alone is not a strong contraindication for surgery.  Many surgeons, myself included, do not refuse surgery with a BMI of 35 unless there are other problems, and even then, surgery is usually possible.  The size you are able to achieve will depend on how much fat you have available and how the buttock skin expands.  You are likely to do well here on both accounts, from the information I see.

I appreciate your question.
Please see ASPS website for a plastic surgeon to get a consultation 

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!

Evaluation for suitability for surgery include evaluating the patient, health issues, and achieving the results that the patient expects. The question would you be able to find a surgeon to do your surgery, probably. But are you the ideal patient, no. you need to have realistic expectations, and the surgeon needs to be convinced he/she will to get the desired results.
You are a high risk for surgery, high BMI. do you really want to take the risk?
