Is my weight too low for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Tags:woman age 35-44 fat BMI weight gain

I fear that my body weight might be too low to get a Brazilian butt lift. What are the recommended guidelines to follow in regards to BMI and body fat percentage? If someone does not have enough fat should they try to gain weight or is this just a natural thing. If I try to gain weight it most likely will be artificial and over my natural weight.

Thanks for the question. 

Even slender patients may have fat in the flanks and lower abdomen as well as the back which may be used to augment the buttocks. Physical exam is required to assess the donor sites and determine if this is the right procedure for you. It is not uncommon to ask patients to gain some weight for BBL surgery if they are thin, in order to have more usable fat. The fat that is transferred will often retain its resistance to fat burning if you then lose weight. Remember that if you gain weight in these areas, and that fat is then transferred, it becomes effectively the equivalent of having just gained the fat in the buttock, which is your goal!

I suggest you schedule some consultations to evaluate you for the procedure. We have more information on our website about BBL's as well.
