Excess skin and fat from aging, heredity factors, or after dramatic weight loss in the gluteal area can be drastically improved with a buttock lift. This procedure involves removing skin and fat through surgical excision and liposuction.

When to Consider a Buttock Lift?
  • If you have loose, sagging skin and extra fat in your buttocks
  • If you recently experienced dramatic weight loss and are close to your ideal weight
  • If your gluteal area makes you feel self-conscious
  • If the excess skin and fat make you uncomfortable or cause mobility problems.

Buttock lift surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure with the use of general anesthesia. The procedure can also be performed as part of a body lift or as part of a circumferential abdominoplasty.

There is not one overall approach used for buttock lift surgery. Plastic surgeon will tailor a method that will best suit your body shape and the amount of skin and fat to be removed.

In general, the incision is made at the waist or slightly below the waist. After the incision or incisions are made, excess skin and fat is detached from the soft tissue and removed. The skin is then tightened and closed in layers.

After surgery, a sterile dressing is applied and you will wear a compression garment or elastic girdle that tightly holds the skin in to reduce swelling and aid in the natural tightening of the skin.

After Care

Following buttock lift surgery, you may experience some mild to moderate pain or discomfort, which can be controlled by medications your plastic surgeon can prescribe for you. You may notice swelling and there may be quite a bit of bruising.

Full recovery from buttock lift surgery usually takes four to six months. While swelling and bruising usually subside within two to three weeks.

Your plastic surgeon will recommend that you avoid any strenuous activity and exercise for up to three months following surgery.
