Does Weight Matter for Brazilian Buttlift?

Q:  Hello! I have a question about the Brazilian buttlift procedure. I am 5′ 4″ and 110 pounds and am relatively lean although not very skinny and was wondering if a doctor would need me to gain weight for the procedure?

A:  It is hard to accurately answer your question without seeing you.  Your measurements indicate you are slim, but I can’t assess how much fat you have.  It is fat stores that matter for the Brazilian Butt Lift.  I have had success with slim patients in my practice.  I sometimes recommend weight gain prior to surgery, but not always.  It really depends on your goals and where you are starting.  I would recommend scheduling a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who has expertise with fat grafting procedures.
