Last fact-checked: 30 August 2020

Get the lowdown on butt lifts in Phuket, including details about the procedure, prices, recommended clinics and information on how to book in this Medical Departures guide. 

What Is a Butt Lift?

A butt lift is an incredibly popular cosmetic procedure that's designed to improve the contour of the buttocks. The surgery essentially involves excess tightening the whole area by removing excess skin and fat before repositioning the remaining skin to create a smoother, more toned look.

As a tailor-made procedure, a butt lift can include liposuction to remove excess fat; for improved size, implants may also be used as part of an augmentation (aka a "Brazilian butt lift"), which is a separate procedure. 

Why Would I Consider Getting a Butt Lift in Phuket?

Thailand's most famous southern island, Phuket is one of Asia’s most popular tourist destinations. Surrounded by the turquoise Andaman Sea, exotic beaches, vibrant nightlife, breathtaking natural beauty, outdoor sports, friendly locals five-star accommodation and often ridiculously affordable prices. While you recover from your procedure, you can relax amidst the tropical climate, enjoy a luxurious vacation and still be close to your clinic for any medical reassurance and monitoring of your recovery.

The cost is one of the major reasons people choose to have a butt lift in Thailand, and Phuket's high-quality tourist facilities and beautiful scenery make it the perfect place for a surgical vacation.

Although standards are generally high, we always recommend you research your clinic and doctor thoroughly. At Medical Departures, we carry out checks on all qualifications and professional memberships before listing any medical facility on our site. We also publish real patient reviews and other useful information, such as clinic photos and price lists.

Am I Suitable for a Butt Lift?

To answer this, it is worth asking yourself the following questions:

  • Are you self-conscious about the shape and firmness of your butt?
  • Is your overall health generally good?
  • Do you have low-hanging buttocks and/or loose skin above?
  • Do you have mobility issues because of your body shape?
  • Are your expectations realistic?
  • Do you have pockets of fat and/or excess skin you want to see the back of?
  • Have you recently lost a lot of weight and feel a butt lift would complete your new look?

If you find yourself answering yes to several or all of those questions, then a butt lift could be just what you need. Ultimately, a surgeon or even a local doctor can confirm your suitability if you are not sure. 

One other thing worth noting is that if you are a smoker, it’s highly recommended that you stop at least six weeks prior to your date of surgery; in general, smokers take much longer to recover from surgery due to poorer blood flow.

How Long Does a Butt Lift Take - And What's Involved?

Carried out under general anesthetic, the procedure usually takes between three and six hours to perform. Each operation is tailored-made to your unique body type, requirements and expectations.

Generally speaking, an oval of loose skin is removed from the upper part of the buttock/lower back, the hips, groin or under the butt cheeks and the remaining skin is pulled taught and sutured in layers to ensure the skin remains tight. This procedure allows the tissues of the buttocks to elevate which reshapes the butt making it look perky, younger and more natural.

If combined with liposuction of the upper thighs and hips to balance your body; the results can be dramatic. The scars are hidden in the bikini line and natural creases making them difficult to detect, any liposuction scars will be smaller and will fade over time.

Recovery from Surgery

A butt lift is a relatively extensive procedure and recovery time can be anything from two to three weeks to several months before normal activities can be resumed. Specific things to note with regard to your recovery are:

  • Fat burning activities should be avoided early on and you should rest and sleep on your side or your stomach.
  • It’s recommended that you take bed rest for the first few days before your follow up visit to your clinic.
  • To avoid stressing the area, you should steer clear of sitting for at least one week; depending on the nature of your job, you can return to work after two weeks providing your job isn’t sedentary.
  • Extensive sitting isn’t recommended because it’s important not to put pressure on your butt for more than a few minutes at a time. Try to use a soft cushion or donut-shaped pillow.

How Much Can I Save on the Price of a Butt Lift in Phuket Compared to Back Home? 

The average cost of a butt lift in Phuket is around AUD $3,700 (GBP £1,800; US $2,600; €2,400). This is compared to a whopping $19,000 in Australia (UK £9,200; US $13,400, EUR €12,200). 

[Please: the above-mentioned average prices are estimates based on data at the time of writing.]
