Also known as a buttock lift or gluteoplasty, a butt lift can transform your derriere if it’s sagging – either because you’ve lost a lot of weight, it's become slacker as you've got older or just because it’s genetically predisposed to do so.

The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat through a surgical incision and liposuction. It is not to be confused with the Brazilian Butt lift, which puts fat in to give you a fuller looking behind.

Am I suitable for a Butt Lift?

If you've loose, sagging skin that bothers you - either from an esthetic or comfort point of view then you may be suitable for a butt lift. This could be caused simply by genetics or because of the aging process, but it may also because you have lost a lot of weight. If it is because of weight loss then it's advisable that your weight has remained stable for around 12 months before you consider the procedure.

Butt lift before and after – Anything I should know?

It is best if you don’t smoke, or at least give up for 6 weeks before the procedure as smoking interferes with the healing process. Also, eat healthily – nourishing your body with vitamins and proteins will also help you to heal.

The results from a butt lift are long-lasting, but if your weight fluctuates a lot, or you become pregnant then this may affect the long-term results. Ageing will eventually take its toll too. You can help prolong the results by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime.

How long does the butt lift procedure take?

The butt lift procedure can take between three and six hours, depending on how much skin and fat needs to be removed, and what method our surgeon chooses to use.

General anesthesia is usually used, but you may be given a combination of local anesthesia and sedation.

When you wake from the procedure you may find surgical drains are in place to remove fluid, and you may be wearing a compression garment.
