Buttock Lift (Gluteoplasty)

Buttock augmentation surgery helps to address patients concerns with the appearance of their buttocks. These concerns can be in relation to their size or shape or the presence of sagging skin and surgery can help to improve these aspects. Buttock augmentation can be performed on its own with buttock implants; buttock-lift (butt-lift) surgery (skin removal; fat transfer); or in combination with other procedures such as abdominoplasty and breast augmentation as part of a more comprehensive body contouring plan.

Is this right for me?

This depends on what you are looking to achieve. If you have sagging skin or extra fat around your buttocks then a buttock lift is a good option. However, if you are self conscious about the size of your bottom; or the excess skin and fat makes you feel uncomfortable, then  a buttock lift and liposuction maybe more beneficial. However, if you want a pert and fuller bottom then having a Brazilian butt lift is more advisable.

What does this involve?

This surgery involves removing the extra skin and fat, through incision (cutting out) and/or liposuction. The scar tends to be across the waist/upper buttock area. You will have a general anaesthetic and will require at least one night inpatient hospital stay. We will use simple dressings to cover the wounds and we do not use drains.

Frequently asked questions

Find the answers to our most frequently asked questions.

We boast an exceptional team of experienced cosmetic surgeons who will help you achieve the look you desire. on discharge from the hospital, you should have someone to take you home. You should avoid strenuous exercise and no heavy lifting or bending. Therefore, someone will need to look after you for at least a couple of days following this procedure.

You will wear a body garment for 3 - 4 weeks (ideally 6 weeks). This will provide support and help with the skin re-draping, especially if liposuction was performed. Light exercise is resumed at two weeks with gentle walking. This is built up slowly over a 4 week period and by 6 weeks you can resume your normal exercise regimen. If you have had implants or fat transferred into the buttocks, then you will not be able to sit or lie on this for a period of time following the surgery. Your surgeon will advise you on this.

Buttock implants are a popular cosmetic procedure to create the appearance of firm buttocks. We surgically place the silicone implants into your buttocks. You will have this procedure under a general anaesthetic and hence require an overnight stay. You will not be able to lie or sit on your buttocks for a period of time after surgery.

Fat is harvested from your body in a similar technique to liposuction and subsequently redistributed around the buttocks. The fat is refined and subsequently injected into the buttocks to make them bigger (augmentation) and we then contour the buttocks to enhance the shape, by using liposuction.

It involves buttock implants, fat transfer to the buttocks, lipocontouring, or a combination of treatments to enhance and consequently reshape the buttocks. Your surgeon will discuss which option is best for you.
