Benefits of a Butt Lift

A butt lift is a buttock augmentation procedure that enhances the contour, shape, size, and appearance of your buttocks. If you're less-than-thrilled with the way your butt looks in jeans or bathing suits, or just wish to improve the size or shape of your buttocks in general, a butt lift can give you the results you desire.

Buttock augmentation procedures are usually performed on those who feel their backsides are smaller than they'd like. They are also performed on those who recently may have lost a significant amount of weight and may have lost volume in their butt during the weight-loss process. Whatever the cause of your concern, a butt lift can be the solution for you. A butt lift can help you by:

  • Adding fullness, shape, and projection to your buttocks
  • Enhancing the proportions of your figure
  • Improving your self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Correcting sagging skin issues from aging, pregnancy, or weight loss
  • Correcting asymmetry with your buttocks

It's important to note that butt lifts are intended to add volume and shape to your butt, not to decrease or trim its size. If you're looking eliminate excess fat or size to your buttocks, Dr. Gartside can talk to you about other body contouring options to help you.

Butt Lift Procedures

The buttock enhancement procedure is generally performed in one of two ways: with implants or the transfer of your own existing fat. The exact procedure used will depend on your specific characteristics and goals, such as:

  • Your butt's current shape and size
  • How much fat you currently have on your body for use
  • Your skin's quality and elasticity as well as the amount of excess skin you have
  • Your specific cosmetic goals

A butt lift with implants is performed by using silicone-filled implants, such as with breast augmentations, placed in the underlying tissue of the buttocks to improve the shape and appearance of the skin of your buttocks. This process may also include the elimination of excess skin and fat in the buttocks to produce the desired aesthetic results.

Another method for buttocks enhancement is a butt lift with fat transfer, sometimes referred to as a Bazillion butt lift. This procedure is performed by transferring existing fat from another part of your body to your buttocks to augment the shape and size to your desired results. This technique has the added benefit of removing fat from targeted areas of your body to not only improve the shape of your butt but other parts of your body as well.
