A butt lift is a cosmetic surgery that can recontour your buttocks area. You can choose between two types of butt lift procedures to either add volume or remove excess tissue and skin. A Brazilian butt lift increases volume. A traditional butt lift eliminates unwanted fat and extra skin.
To find out if you can achieve a more proportionate figure with a butt lift procedure, call 212-517-5157 to schedule a free consultation with double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Joshua B. Hyman. Dr. Hyman performs Brazilian butt lifts and traditional butt lifts in his state-of-the-art private ambulatory center in Manhattan.
What is a Butt Lift?
A traditional butt lift addresses excess skin and fat in the buttocks to create a firmer backside. If you have sagging skin and unwanted tissue or fat, this procedure can trim and tighten the area. A traditional butt lift may be combined with other body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck, liposuction, or lower body lift for more comprehensive results.
Butt Lift Procedure
You will be given general anesthesia or intravenous sedation to start. Depending on your anatomy and desired outcome, Dr. Hyman will make an incision just below your waist or below your buttocks. Unwanted skin and tissue are then removed, and skin is positioned to create smoother, firmer buttocks.
Is a Butt Lift Right for Me?
Weight fluctuations, aging, and pregnancy can cause you to lose skin elasticity or accumulate fat in the buttocks area. A traditional butt lift can:
- Slim your hips, thighs, and buttocks.
- Lift your buttocks for a more youthful look.
- Remove excess skin, fat, and tissue.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the buttocks via fat transfer to achieve a rounder, shapelier behind. The treatment involves fat removal from other areas of the body, so you simultaneously slim those areas while increasing the size of your buttocks.
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Your Brazilian butt lift procedure starts with general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Dr. Hyman then performs liposuction to obtain fat from other parts of your body. The extracted fat is purified and then is injected into the buttocks through small incisions.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me?
If your efforts to increase the size of your buttocks through diet and exercise have not transformed your “flat” buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift may be the solution to create the body proportions you desire. A Brazilian buff lift:
- Can create fuller, rounder buttocks.
- Requires that you have ample fat in other parts of your body.
- Does not treat sagging or loose skin. You need to have firm skin in the area for optimal results.
- Requires that you do not sit on your buttocks for several weeks following surgery.
Am I a Candidate for a Butt Lift?
Though butt lift and Brazilian butt lift candidacy differs in terms of your treatment goals, there are some commonalities when determining if you are a good candidate for a butt lift surgery. You should:
- Be at a stable weight for several months.
- Be in good general health.
- Not smoke or be willing to quit smoking before your surgery and for the duration of your recovery.
- Have realistic expectations.
Butt Lift Surgery Recovery
You will be able to go home a few hours after your surgery. You will need someone else to drive you due to the anesthesia. Your incisions will have dressings, and you will need to wear a special garment around the treatment site. Dr. Hyman will provide care instructions for your incisions.
With either surgery, swelling and tenderness are to be expected in the first week or two after surgery. These symptoms will diminish as the site heals, and you will see visible results right away. You will have some physical activity restrictions. Dr. Hyman will monitor your healing process and approve activities as your recovery progresses. Final results will be apparent within about six months, and your scars will fade over the next year or two.
