Booty Lyft/BBL Q & A

Enhance the shape of your buttocks with a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

BBLs offer a shapelier and more voluminous buttock through liposuction and fat injections.

BBLs are also known as butt enhancement surgery, fat grafting to the buttocks, butt augmentation and booty lyft.

What is the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL with Lipo 360)?

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a type of butt augmentation procedure which results in youthful, prominent, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile. A popular procedure, BBL is referred to as a BBL with Lipo 360.  Augmenting your buttocks using your own fat from the abdomen, love handles, and back, for example will give you the shape you want and desire.

The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks so that the butt appears lifted and perky. The resulting effect is that your profile appears more attractive and sensuous. 

How is a Brazilian Butt Lift performed?

Fat transfer is most common in the buttocks. Fat is harvested via liposuction moving excess fat from other parts of their body and placing it into the buttocks and hips. Excess fat is collected from one area of the body, rinsed and injected into the buttocks. Only the best donor fat cells are re-injected back into your buttocks for augmentation. In order to get enough qualified fat, I must liposuction at least two to three areas of your body.

Am I a Candidate?

Candidates usually have these signs or symptoms

  • flat buttocks, sagging buttocks, asymmetrical buttocks, small (disproportionate) buttocks, change of the buttock’s shape following massive weight loss

Patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations.

How much fat is Injected into each buttock cheek?

The average amount of fat that I inject into each buttock cheek is 500-600 cc. However, patients who have a generous fat distribution before surgery can expect to get up to 1000cc of fat for each cheek.

How long do the fat injections last?

If the fat is harvested, processed, and injected correctly, the result should be long lasting. The procedure should not require touch ups or a second round of fat injections.

What happens to my new buttock if I lose weight?

Patients often ask if they will lose the affect of the Brazilian butt lift if they lose weight. Losing 10% of body weight following a BBL should not affect the fat grafting.

Dr. Linda is wonderful - has never made me feel rushed. Highly recommend for Dysport. Her rates for Dysport are reasonable & substantially lower than my dermatologist


My experience at Heron Med Spa was awesome. I look great & feel great. I'm still healing and a little sore. I do everything they told me to do. I worked the same day.


Professional & prompt, Dr. Heron is an excellent surgeon. I had laser lipo on my neck & jowls. I am pleased with my result for two reasons: the results are phenomenal!


From the first time I talked with Dr. Heron I knew I made the right choice. He explained in detail every that I need to do during my recovery. My results were amazing. I


20 years ago I was referred to Dr. Heron for weight loss. I return every year to prevent gaining during holidays. If I am struggling with my weight I restart his program.


I had a laser session for scars with Barbara. The session was great - very knowledgeable. I look forward to going back.


I will definitely wear a bikini this summer. After two kids, I called Dr Heron. I only took pain medicine for three days and followed doctor's orders. My skin is tighter.
