What is a Butt Lift?

A buttock lift can remove excess drooping skin to produce a more shapely, sculpted, and youthful appearance. The procedure can address lax skin after significant weight loss, drooping contours due to the natural aging process, asymmetry in the rear end, and physical injuries or accidents that have altered the look of the buttocks.

The Buttock Lift Procedure

A buttock lift is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis and can take anywhere from 3-6 hours, depending on the extent of the work required. Incisions are usually made at the top of the buttocks, with a possible additional incision in the groin or the hips.

Excess skin is removed, and the area is contoured to appear more youthful and toned. Scarring is greatly minimized through Dr. Parakh’s careful attention to detail and meticulous precision.

Options for Buttock Enhancement

Implants

Buttock implants can provide long-lasting augmentation, helping to expand clothing options. The implants come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to provide each patient with a highly tailored experience.

BBL

A Brazilian Butt Lift can be performed using the patient’s own autologous fat to subtly enhance the rear end. The procedure has the added benefit of sculpting the donor regions, typically the thighs, belly, or flanks.

Injections

Butt enhancement can be achieved through the use of dermal fillers, such as Sculptra or Radiesse. These injectables renew the body’s natural supply of collagen, a protein that builds youthful volume over time.

Buttock Lift Recovery and Results

After a buttock lift, patients will receive a customized aftercare plan, a compression garment to help control swelling, and prescription pain medications to help ease any discomfort. Minor soreness and bruising may occur, but these side effects will peak in the first week and then gradually subside. While most patients will need around 12 weeks to fully heal, some can return to work within 2-3 weeks. Strenuous activity should be postponed until 6 weeks post-op, or as directed by Dr. Parakh.
