Butt Lift

The shape and proportion of the buttocks are important factors in an attractive, well-proportioned body. With Brazilian butt lift surgery, a skilled cosmetic surgeon can use specialized fat transfer techniques to achieve a fuller, rounder buttock contour.

What is Butt Lift?

Known as gluteoplasty, this surgery lifts and tightens the skin of the buttocks. Excess skin is removed and the surrounding tissue repositioned to create a more youthful and pleasing body contour. This procedure is not to be confused with a Brazilian butt lift, which adds volume to the buttocks using injections of the patient’s own fat to increase projection and create a lifting effect. The downside of a butt lift is that it may flatten out the buttocks too much. In this case, a butt lift may be performed in conjunction with fat grafting or other augmentation methods including the use of the patient’s own extra skin.

Why Butt Lift done?

As you get older, your skin changes and becomes looser. In addition, sun damage, fluctuations in weight and genetic factors can contribute to poor skin elasticity. These factors can cause your buttocks, as well as other parts of your body, to sag.

Brazilian butt lift surgery can help overcome the effects of genetics by reshaping the buttocks and surrounding areas, such as the hips, lower back, and thighs. You might consider a Brazilian butt lift to:

  • Enhance the curves of your lower body
  • Reduce fat pockets on your hips, thighs or belly
  • while adding fullness to the buttocks
  • Help clothing fit more attractively
  • Give a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing shape to flat buttocks
  • Enhance your overall proportions by improving balance between your upper and lower body

Before Butt Lift surgery, you might also need to:

  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid certain medications
  • Maintain a stable weight
  • Arrange for help during recovery

How you prepare for Butt Lift surgery?

Initially, you'll talk to a plastic surgeon about a buttock lift. During your first visit, your plastic surgeon will likely:

  • Review your medical history
  • Do a physical exam
  • Discuss your expectations

What is involved in Brazilian butt lift surgery?

A Brazilian butt lift involves three basic steps:

  • Fat is removed from the hips, lower back, thighs, abdomen, and/or other areas with liposuction
  • The extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer
  • The cosmetic surgeon injects fat into specific points on the buttocks to increase volume and improve shape
