Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Buttocks lift cost in Orange County?

At CosmetiCare in Newport Beach, the starting price of a buttocks lift is $13,400.

The average cost of a buttocks lift may vary depending on the amount of skin that needs to be removed, and the shape of your own body.

We also offer up to 24-month financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

What is the recovery like for a buttocks lift?

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 at your consultation and pre-operative appointment at CosmetiCare in Orange County. 

What will my scars look like after a buttocks lift?

The incision site of a buttocks lift is above the buttocks from hip to hip.

At CosmetiCare in Newport Beach, we offer different types of scar treatments to ensure that you love your results. We offer scar gel and scar strips, as well as a variety of laser treatments to help lighten and soften your scars.

When will I see results from a buttocks lift?

Results from a buttocks lift are immediate, however optimal results will be present between four and six months after your procedure.

What Do I Need To Know?

Performed under general anesthesia, a buttocks 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 buttocks lift is oftentimes combined with liposuction, the primary goal is only to tighten deep tissue and skin.

Are the results of a buttocks lift permanent?

The results of a buttocks lift are very long-lasting, depening on your lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is imparative in order to maintain your results.

Does a buttocks lift restore volume?

A buttock lift alone won’t add any volume to the buttocks. Often, a buttocks lift is combined with a buttocks enlargement or a Brazilian butt lift to alter the shape or size of the buttocks with implants or fat grafts.

Does insurance cover a buttocks lift?

Buttocks lifts are considered cosmetic surgery, so they are not covered by insurance.

If cost is of concern, we offer financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

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.
