Are you curious what you might look like with a more shapely, defined backside? A buttock lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance and refine the contours of the lower butt/upper thigh region. It is often recommended for women or men who have excess skin and fat in this area as a result of aging or significant weight loss.

Buttock Lift Details

During this procedure, loose skin is tightened and reshaped. The surgeon will remove any excess skin and fatty deposits. The result is a smoother buttock appearance, better fitting clothes, and improved self-confidence.

Is it Right For You?

Buttock lift is frequently performed along with a thigh lift (also called a leg lift) for dramatically slimming results. If you have flabby skin or dimpling in the buttock area, you can learn more about the benefits of a buttock lift and find out if you are a candidate during a personal consultation with Bay Area plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Aycock.

What to Expect

After you and your surgeon discuss risks, benefits, surgical steps, and incision sites, you can go ahead and schedule your procedure for a time when you can focus on recovery. Your duration in the surgical suite and your length of recovery will depend on whether you are having the buttock lift alone, or adding a leg lift, arm lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, or other combination procedure. This surgery is performed using general anesthesia, so you will need to have a friend or family member available to drive you home. In some cases, an overnight stay may be recommended to ensure correct healing.

Get Started

If you have questions about the buttock lift or other cosmetic body contouring procedures, Dr. Aycock is available to guide you to the procedures that will help you look as good as you feel.
