What Is A Buttlift?

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. Not to be confused with a “Brazilian butt lift,” which adds volume using fat transfer, the Buttock lift, also known as butt lift or gluteoplasty, involves only 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 excess fat or skin make you uncomfortable or cause mobility problems
  • If your self-confidence would improve from such a procedure

What Are My Options?

Depending on the quality of your skin, how much excess there is to remove, and your body shape, your surgeon will determine what options are open to you. If there is a large amount of skin to remove, you may consider having a lower body lift, which would help remove skin around other areas of the body, including the stomach, buttock, thighs and hips. If removing the skin will result in a loss of volume to the buttock, a buttock augmentation might be appropriate following a buttock lift.

FAQs

Results from buttock lifts are very long-lasting. As with most surgery, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and aging will take a toll on the body and the results of your buttock lift. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid stretching the skin by weight gain, you can enjoy a youthful contour for a long time.

Final results become visible approximately two to three months after the surgery.

Other additional procedures can also be considered while undergoing a buttlift, like an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or buttock augmentation (add links).

Incisions for a butt lift could include a large incision on the top of the buttocks in the back or hidden underneath the buttock by the crease. If liposuction is involved, there will be smaller scars that will fade and be mostly unnoticeable.
