Many men and women desire a rounder, fuller bottom. It is not uncommon for our patients at John Williams Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ to inquire about procedures and treatments for lifting the buttocks' skin. During a butt lift surgery, performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, excess skin is removed and the tissue on this area is lifted and tightened to create a curvaceous, toned appearance. Dr. Williams may recommend a buttocks augmentation using silicone or saline implants, or a fat transfer to enhance the shape and add volume to the area even further. Patients may consider combining surgeries with the butt lift surgery, such as liposuction, thigh lift, or tummy tuck to balance their body's shape and proportions.

"Dr. Williams is fantastic. He did a breast lift and augmentation and I couldn't be happier. I was very nervous about the procedure and the second I met him I felt at ease.

He is amazing and so is his work. You won't find anyone better!"- K.W. / Yelp / Apr 01, 2017
"The Valley's Finest....by far! I never wanted to have plastic surgery prior to having my children. However, after birthing six children my body was not looking very good even after loosing all the baby weight. When I decided to have a Mommy Makeover, I researched doctors and the process and procedures for a long time. All in all, I interviewed 9 different top rated plastic surgeons that had fantastic reviews and I can honestly say that I would only consider letting two of them cut me open. Only one was in the state of Arizona. When I met Dr. John Williams for the first time, he made me feel calm. He was very professional but down to earth. He was very confident in what he can do and yet not cocky like most plastic surgeons that I have met. (Trust me, most are cocky and arrogant) He took a lot of time with me describing everything and answered ALL of my concerns and questions more thoroughly than I could have imagined. When I left, I knew I wanted Dr. John Williams to perform my surgery. Shortly after this visit, I became pregnant and my Mommy Makeover would have to wait. Three years later, I was ready! I went back to see Dr. Williams and Nicole was awesome! She is very sweet and makes you feel very comfortable as well. They even gave me a discount for coming back! His prices were already very reasonable and I booked him right away! I am a bruiser and a scar prone person so I was very worried about this surgery. I had read about woman being in terrible pain the first few days of recovery and I had a horrible time recovering from my recent c-section. I had none of this. I had almost no pain. Honestly, his hands are like magic because I had NO bruising what so ever! I don?t do well with pain meds so I was not looking forward to doing that but I didn?t even need anything other than Tylenol. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Williams and his staff. It was an amazing, life changing procedure that I?m so happy I did. I truly believe that it has everything to do with how gentle Dr. Williams is with the tissue in surgery. My stomach looks better than I could have hoped for and I finally have breasts that are in proportion with my body! I feel amazing and it?s only been about 4 weeks since my surgery. My step mom saw me and has already scheduled a procedure with him even though she had a previous plastic surgeon that she had gone with!"- S.P. / Google / Jun 28, 2016
"Dr. Williams is everything I look for in a surgeon - calming, skillful, mindful, friendly, and he truly LISTENS. I never feel rushed and the results are always amazing. Equally exceptional is his staff whom could not be any sweeter and make you feel at home right away, every time. They are on top of their game and very organized and meticulous with patient care. Thanks Dr. Williams, Nicole, and Mackenna! I love this entire office and I know you will too."- M.P. / Facebook / Mar 23, 2017
A surgical butt lift is reserved for patients who have loose, hanging skin on and under the buttock. Weight loss patients are usually great candidates for this procedure because once the weight has been lost, the skin typically does not shrink back to its natural state. This surgery removes this skin and creates a normal appearance.
What to Expect
Butt lift surgery typically consists of incisions made underneath the butt cheeks, where the cheek meets the upper thigh. During the procedure, any loose or hanging skin will be cut away and the remaining skin will be lifted and pulled securely into a new position. Sutures are used to securely hold the skin in its new position. In some cases, liposuction may be needed to remove existing, unwanted fat pockets. After the healing process, there will be minimal scarring, however, it will not be visible because of the placement of the incision.
Taking approximately 2 hours to fully complete, butt lift surgery is an outpatient procedure generally performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation. There will be bruising and swelling near the incision area, and walking will be difficult the first few days after surgery. A full recovery from this surgery is usually evident within 3-6 months. With a healthy lifestyle and diet, the surgical results should last a lifetime.
