About Butt Lift Surgery
Butt lift surgery, also known as gluteoplasty, can help you get a tighter, more toned buttocks. Natural changes, such as aging and weight loss, can leave the butt with unwanted loose skin and a sagging position. During butt lift surgery with Dr. Aisha McKnight-Baron, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon in the Greater Atlanta area, this excess skin is removed and then the butt is lifted and secured to create a nice, perky appearance. Unlike a Brazilian butt lift or butt augmentation, a butt lift doesn't change the size of the buttocks. For patients who want more volume and need excess skin removed, butt lift surgery can be combined with a Brazilian butt lift or butt augmentation.

Patients who undergo butt lift surgery usually want:
- Excess skin on the buttocks removed
- The position of the butt elevated
What to Expect
Taking approximately 2 hours, butt lift surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Butt lift surgery typically uses incisions made underneath the butt cheeks, where the cheek meets the upper thigh. During the procedure, excess skin will be cut away and then the remaining skin, muscle, and tissue will be lifted and pulled securely into a new position. Minor liposuction may be used to get rid of any excess fat. Patients should expect bruising and swelling on and around the procedure site, which may last a few months. Once the swelling subsides, patients will begin to see their surgical results. Full results may not be seen until up to a year after surgery. After the healing process, any visible scarring can usually be concealed with undergarments or a swimsuit.
Patients should not confuse this surgical procedure with a Brazilian butt lift and butt augmentation. These surgeries enhance the size and shape of the buttocks through fat transfers and implants. The plastic surgeon will explain the differences between the 3 butt surgeries and help you decide which is best for your needs and goals.
Patients should maintain a healthy and consistent weight and diet following their butt lift procedure. Weight gain or fluctuations can negatively affect the surgical results.
