Overview

Aging and weight loss can leave the butt sagging with loose skin and wrinkles. Butt lift surgery is a procedure performed by Dr. Yaker for Plano and DFW area patients seeking firmer, tighter buttocks. This surgery removes excess skin from the buttocks and upper thighs and pulls the remaining skin higher to create a tighter look. This surgery also helps to tone the lateral thigh area. Some patients also inquire about the Brazilian butt lift. This procedure does not surgically “lift” the butt like a traditional butt lift, instead, it fills it out using a transfer of fat that is harvested from another area of the body. Dr. Yaker will assess the buttocks and create a surgical plan that will create the best outcome. 

Surgical Technique

During a traditional butt lift procedure, incisions will be made under the butt cheeks along the natural fold where the butt meets the upper thighs. Any hanging, loose skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin and underlying tissue will be pulled tight to a new position. The incisions are closed with sutures. Once the incisions heal, the scars left behind will be somewhat inconspicuous because of where they reside. It is important to note that liposuction is sometimes a part of this procedure if excess fat is also a concern.

During/After Surgery

Butt lift surgery is an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete. Swelling and bruising will be evident for the first several months, but once this subsides patients are usually able to see the surgical results. It could take from 6 months up to a full year for the final results to take shape.

Expected Cost

The cost for a butt lift procedure will vary depending on the extent of the surgery and whether or not another procedure, such as liposuction, was included. On average, this surgery will cost between $5,000-$10,000.

Butt Lift FAQ's

Butt Lift or Lipo?

For patients who have hanging and loose skin or wrinkles under the buttocks, a butt lift will be necessary. Liposuction is a fat removal procedure. If the skin tone and laxity around the buttocks is healthy, and excess fat is the problem, liposuction may be recommended.

What About Butt Implants?

Butt augmentation surgery using implants is yet another option to consider. This procedure provides extra height and volume, but uses a silicone butt implant to achieve these results. Between butt implants, the Brazilian butt lift using a fat transfer, and a traditional butt lift, patients have many alternatives to choose from in order to meet their aesthetic goals.  It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique with us so that the desired results can be attained safely.

Weight Gain After Surgery?

Weight gain could compromise your new, enhanced figure. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Will Scars be Visible?

Scarring is a part of this procedure. However, an experienced cosmetic surgeon will work to minimize the scarring as much as possible. During surgery, the incisions are usually placed within the natural folds on the underside of the buttocks, which helps keep them inconspicuous. For the most part, the scars from this procedure will be easily concealed with undergarments or a bathing suit.
