Is Butt Lift Right for You?

You may be a suitable candidate for butt lift if you:

  • Are bothered by a saggy or shapeless buttocks
  • Are in good physical and emotional health
  • Understand the risks of surgery
  • Have realistic expectations from surgery

Prior to surgery, Dr. DeMars will meet with you one-on-one to discuss your aesthetic concerns and ideal buttock shape. The doctor will also go over in detail what butt lift does and does not accomplish. It is important to understand that butt lift will not change the size of small buttocks, but it will eliminate excess loose, saggy skin and improve the shape of flat buttocks.

During your initial consultation, Dr. DeMars will perform a physical examination of your buttocks and overall anatomy. He will use this information to design a treatment plan for you. Depending on your goals, the doctor may recommend combining butt lift with one or several other procedures. For instance, if you have unwanted fatty deposits on the buttocks, Dr. DeMars may recommend combining butt lift with liposuction. Butt lift can also be combined with thigh lift, tummy tuck, and lower body lift. The goal of combining these procedures is to create a more proportionate overall body figure.

Procedure Details

Butt lift is performed with anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. The procedure typically takes two hours to complete. If combined with another procedure, it can take three to six hours to perform. To begin butt lift surgery, Dr. DeMars will plan the incisions so they are covered by the average swimwear or underwear. He will then remove excess skin from the buttocks and, if necessary, the outer thighs. Excess fat deposits will be removed via liposuction. The remaining skin is tightened and smoothed for a more attractive buttock shape and contour. Once finished, Dr. DeMars will close the incisions with sutures.

Recovery Details

Following your surgery, Dr. DeMars will place compression garments on the treated area(s) and surgical drains. Compression garments are generally worn for four to six weeks to minimize swelling and provide support to the buttocks and other treated areas. Bruising, swelling and soreness are common during the first few weeks after surgery. Dr. DeMars can prescribe oral medication to minimize discomfort. During the first few days of recovery, you should not sit directly on your buttocks; instead, you should sit on a pillow. Dr. DeMars will monitor your recovery during several follow-up appointments. Based on your healing progress, Dr. DeMars will advise you on when you can return to work as well as resume exercise and other daily activities. Swelling may last for up to three months, and the final cosmetic results may take up to a year to become fully visible.
