About Butt Lift Surgery
The presence of loose or wrinkled skin around your rear end can be discouraging, especially for those who diet and exercise regularly. When you have lost a significant amount of weight, you may suffer greatly from this condition and need a butt lift. It is for this reason that The Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology recommends butt lift surgery to address stretched skin with surgical removal techniques to reveal a lifted, firmer butt. There are quite a few benefits of receiving a butt lift, like a plumper backside in a more lifted position with taut skin underneath. This promising skin tightening surgery performed by The Woodlands, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul S. Gill is commonly performed in conjunction with other body sculpting surgeries, such as a tummy tuck, a thigh lift, or a lower body lift.
Dr. Gill combines an experienced aesthetic eye, the highest level of surgical training, and a gentle congenial bedside manner. He pays meticulous attention to every detail to ensure that you receive the youthful, elegant, and natural look you desire from butt lift.

Ideal candidates for a butt lift surgery at The Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology usually seek out a surgical alternative when their diet and exercise efforts do not correct their misshapen bottom from genetics or if you have developed an asymmetrical backside. It's incredibly challenging to lift the behind without removing or tightening the skin. Dr. Gill might recommend a butt lift to older patients with aging, sagging skin or young individuals with excess, loose skin from weight loss. Women who have previously been pregnant might also notice a difference in the nature of the skin around their bottom. The best candidates for any buttock surgery will be healthy nonsmokers who have realistic expectations and a thorough understanding of the risks and benefits involved.
After weight loss, contouring of the buttocks can be performed to correct sagging skin and tissue. Dr. Gill will make an incision across the lower back, where the hanging skin is lifted, trimmed, and then sutured. Liposuction can be performed in adjacent areas for gluteal contouring. For cosmetic enhancement, implants or fat injections can significantly increase buttock projection. Implants are placed through an incision in the lower buttock crease. An alternative to this procedure, which is gaining popularity in Houston, is the Brazilian butt lift technique. A series of injections with your own body fat can augment the buttocks for a natural enhancement. When the procedure is over, your incisions will be sewn closed in the lower buttock crease and you will be monitored in the recovery area by our skilled team of medical professionals.
What to Expect
Following your butt lift surgery, you can expect some swelling and bruising around and on the surgical site, which could last a number of months. It is typically uncomfortable to sit in a normal position for a little while so we highly advise you heed the medical advice provided to you. It is of the utmost importance that you report to every follow-up appointment and keep a close eye on your healing incisions.
It is not uncommon for the buttocks to be uncomfortable for the first week. As the swelling decreases, you will start to notice the outcome of the procedure. After a buttock lift, you may need to postpone physical activity for about three weeks. Dr. Gill will provide specific aftercare instructions and may require follow-up visits to monitor your healing and results. It may take several weeks or months before you can see the final result of your buttock surgery. For some, results may not be noticed for a full year after the surgery. After recovery, any scars that remain visible can typically be concealed beneath swimsuits and undergarments. If you have concerns or questions, please contact The Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology for help.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a butt lift and liposuction?
A butt lift procedure is more beneficial for individuals who are experiencing loose skin or wrinkles under their buttocks. While liposuction is a fat removal procedure, a butt lift will not remove excess fat. Therefore, if you have healthy skin laxity but are embarrassed by the appearance of excess fat, liposuction may be better suited for your aesthetic goals.
Will I have visible scarring?
Like with most surgical procedures, scarring is to be expected. However, our experienced surgeons work to make scarring as minimal as possible. Additionally, incisions are made in the natural folds and contours of your body so that they are better concealed. To learn more about the risks, benefits, and expected outcomes for buttock lift or buttock augmentation, contact our office for more information.
What happens if I gain weight after surgery?
The results of a butt lift procedure can be compromised if there is significant weight gain after the procedure. Therefore, a butt lift is only recommended if you are close to or at your goal weight. It is also recommended to stick to a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain your results after a butt lift surgery.
Can I also get implants during a butt lift procedure?
While a butt lift procedure creates a firmer and tighter appearance to the buttocks, it does not add volume. A butt augmentation is a procedure that uses implants to create more volume in the buttocks. Additionally, a fat transfer procedure uses your own fat from elsewhere in your body to then be injected into the buttocks. Both a butt augmentation and fat transfer procedure can be combined with a butt lift surgery if you are wanting to further enhance your results.
