Over time the body’s shape and contour changes and areas begin to move or become loose. A butt lift surgery is a procedure that removes loose, sagging skin from the bottom and lifts tissue from this area to create a tighter and toned buttocks. For patients who are healthy and exercise regularly yet need assistance achieving a smoothed, toned rear end, butt lift surgery may be a viable option for you. During butt lift surgery, Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth O. Rothaus carefully removes excess skin and pulls the remaining skin tight creating a more toned contour. A butt lift may be combined with a butt augmentation procedure to achieve a patient’s optimum aesthetic goal.

Best Candidates

A surgical butt lift is reserved for patients who have loose, hanging skin on and under the buttock. Weight loss patients are usually great candidates for this procedure because once the weight has been lost, the skin typically does not shrink back to its natural state. This surgery removes this skin and creates a normal appearance.

What To Expect

Butt lift surgery typically consists of incisions made across the top of the buttocks or in the infragluteal crease (underneath the butt cheeks, where the cheek meets the upper thigh). During the procedure, any loose or hanging skin will be cut away and the remaining skin will be lifted and pulled securely into a new position. Sutures are used to securely hold the skin in its new position. In some cases, liposuction may be needed to remove existing, unwanted fat pockets. After the healing process, there will be minimal scarring, however, it will not be visible because of the placement of the incision.

Butt Lift Recovery

Taking approximately 2 hours to fully complete, butt lift surgery is an outpatient procedure generally performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation. There will be bruising and swelling near the incision area, and walking will be difficult the first few days after surgery. A full recovery from this surgery is usually evident within 3-6 months. With a healthy lifestyle and diet, the surgical results should last a lifetime.
