Safety of Brazilian Butt Lift

As long as you are otherwise healthy, your weight alone does not put you at a high risk to have a Brazilian Butt Lift.  Your plastic surgeon can evaluate you in person to determine if you are a good candidate, and what kind of a result you will get.

Too overweight for a BBL?

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

Your weight is rarely the single reason not to be a BBL candidate. In fact, we like fat...it gives us more to work with. It is more to do with other medical problems associated with obesity - diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, etc. You should speak to a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in BBLs and your primary physician.

Am I too heavy for Brazilian Butt Lift?

The height and weight figures that you submitted are not too heavy to have a Brazilian butt lift performed if you are otherwise healthy.  Good luck.

       The short answer is no.  At that height and weight, you would not be excluded as an operative candidate, provided you have no other medical conditions that would prohibit a safely performed surgery.  In the average patient, I can remove 5 L (maximum safe outpatient limit), and transfer 1200 to each buttock and hip.
