A buttock lift is designed to lift and recontour the buttocks. It involves the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue and is typically performed through a transverse incision hidden just below the underwear line. Although this procedure may be performed alone, it is often combined with other body contouring procedures such as back lift, thigh lift, or abdominoplasty. It may also be combined with fat injection to fill out the contour of the buttock. This procedure may be performed as an outpatient, however, your doctor will review your specific anatomy and discuss the most appropriate intra- and post-operative care.
