Do You Need a Butt Lift?

Visiting CosmetiCare in Orange County gives you the chance to meet with one of our carefully selected, award-winning, board-certified plastic surgeons. They’ll put their extensive experience and knowledge to work, helping you choose the procedure that is right for you, your unique body type, and your individual cosmetic goals.

  • Sagging and loose skin above your buttocks
  • Lost a massive amount of weight
  • Experienced frustration with your appearance
  • Recently undergone weight loss surgery

Butt Lift Procedure Options

The butt lift focuses on skin removal but can be paired with fat transfer for the addition of more volume. We make it a point to work closely with our patients, and will do everything we can to customize your results around your exact cosmetic goals. During your consultation, you and your surgeon will discuss the best lift for you.

Butt Lift

This procedure is best suited to individuals who have an excess of skin and lack of fat causing their rear end to droop and sag.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

This technique is best for those who have excess fat in areas other than the butt. A BBL utilizes fat from other body areas to add volume and help with overall shape and symmetry.

What Do I Need To Know?

Performed under general anesthesia, a butt lift takes about two to three hours to perform. This cosmetic surgery procedure requires that incisions be made vertically across the top of the upper buttocks area, extending to the sides of the back.

This incision will typically be concealed with undergarments and clothes.

The length of the incisions will depend on the amount of excess skin to be removed. After incisions are made, the excess skin is removed and the remaining skin and tissue is lifted to achieve a smoother, tighter overall look to the buttocks. Although buttock lift is oftentimes combined with liposuction, the primary goal is only to tighten deep tissue and skin.

Your Recovery Period

For the first few days following surgery, you will feel some pain and soreness that can be relieved with pain medication. It is extremely important to follow the rules and guidelines put in place by your board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure a speedy recovery.

For the first few weeks following your procedure, you will need to avoid any strenuous activity including intercourse, exercising, and lifting anything over 10 pounds. Recovery time varies per patient, but you should expect to take up to three weeks off of work. Your surgeon will go over an exact timeline with you of all recovery information, guidelines, and all other information during your consultation and pre-operative appointment at CosmetiCare in Orange County.

How Will I Look & Feel Afterwards?

  • For the first few weeks, you will have tape over your incisions.
  • A compression garment will be placed on you immediately after surgery to provide good support, keep the lifted skin tight and help keep swelling down. The garment will be worn for about three to four weeks.
  • You may be allowed to shower the day after surgery, but some patients wait a couple of days.
  • Careful patting of the incision area is needed to keep the area dry.
  • A small amount of bleeding is normal within the first few days.
  • Surgical drains placed during surgery to help eliminate residual bleeding and fluid build-up will be removed after about one week.
  • Sutures are typically internal.
  • Bruising should start to fade after two to three weeks.
  • Swelling will be present for about three to four months but a dramatic difference is seen about one month after surgery.
  • You can return to work within a week to 10 days. However, it will take about a month to regain your full energy.
  • More strenuous activities should be avoided for four to six weeks.
