Gaining weight will likely only lead to disappointment after surgery as most patients cannot maintain the weight and results. There are a lot of women who can get nice results despite thinking that there is not enough fat.

You appear to be a good candidate for a BBL but additional photos of your entire anatomy, Skype, or off-consult with a board certified PS is needed to determine the areas of fat and a discussion of your ultimate goals.

Sometimes, individuals will have problem areas that are relatively exercise and diet resistant. These are the focus areas for your PS to lipo. You have to consider not only which areas will have perhaps the best fat, but also you have to consider which donor sites will have the fewest problems afterward with the liposuction. In general, the abdomen and thighs are preferred, but, if those sites are not available, other areas can be used.

Creative liposuction with fat transfer to the hips can make them appear lifted, and rounder. If the waist was smaller at one time, the waist can likely be reduced to those same measurements or smaller provided the muscular and fascial integrity has remained the same.
