A surgery known as the Brazilian butt lift (BBL) has become one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgeries in the U.S. Surgeons need an artistic eye and steady hand to perfect this body contouring surgery. With years of training, experience, and learned skill, plastic surgeons Drs. Canales, Culbertson, and Furnas can craft gorgeous, natural-looking results with a Brazilian butt lift in Santa Rosa. But how much do you have to weigh for a BBL?
As a fat transfer to the buttocks, this procedure is an effective way to achieve rounder and shapelier buttocks without an implant. However, you need to have enough fat on your body to perform the liposuction and fat transfer aspect of the Brazilian butt lift process.
Change your contours
There is no minimum weight requirement for a Brazilian butt lift procedure, but there does need to be adequate fat on your body for the fat transfer to your buttocks. Those who have insufficient fat for liposuction are not candidates for BBL surgery. That would include individuals who have a very low body weight or those who, for example, are fitness professionals with low body fat percentages.
The expert plastic surgeons at Plastic Surgery Associates will perform a thorough consultation to ensure your candidacy for a Brazilian butt lift.
Weight is not the only factor considered before a BBL procedure. It is also crucial to have good skin tone. If you have sagging skin, you may feel more satisfied with the results of a traditional surgical butt lift.

Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
If you want to improve the shape and size of your buttocks, you can get butt augmentation using either silicone implants or fat grafting, which is commonly called a Brazilian butt lift. Buttock implants have a high incidence of infection and only a limited size can be placed, so our plastic surgeons prefer fat transfer to In your initial consultation, we will explain both methods and help you choose which fits your physique and goals. We will also examine your body to decide which areas would get liposuction (usually the stomach, back, or thighs). You may not be a candidate for a BBL if your body fat percentage is too low.
