Butt Lift Overview
Many men and women desire a rounder, fuller bottom. It is not uncommon for our patients at John Williams, MD 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, excess skin is removed and the tissue on this area is lifted and tightened to create a curvaceous, toned appearance. 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.
"Words can not express how truly happy I am with my whole experience! I have wanted this surgery for years, but never thought I would actually voluntarily have someone cut me open. Trust in someone to do that is HUGE! Dr. Williams put me at ease immediately. After meeting and speaking with Dr. Williams I knew I was in good hands! He explained the whole process and everything I should expect (good and bad). If I had known about him before I wouldn’t have waited so long! His whole staff is fantastic, especially Adriana! Thank you for EVERYTHING! It’s been a month, I know I have a long way to go till I’m all healed, but I am already so very happy with the results! If you are looking for a great surgeon look no further!"- K.L. / Google / Sep 22, 2018
"amazing surgical experience - From the moment I met Dr Williams and his staff I felt very at ease. I went to have an explant and a lift after having trouble with my implants and hating them for 10 years. Dr. Williams listened and was very thorough and has a great bedside manner. My Dr recommended him and she was spot on. I had my explant and lift March 15th and I have had limited pain and have not needed pain medicine only Advil. He is very gentle and precise! I am so impressed and couldn't be happier even at 3 days post op! If you are considering a Dr, go see Dr Williams and his staff!!! They are amazing!!!"- R. / RealSelf / May 19, 2020
"Yes that’s it!!! If you’re looking for a top notch doctor or professional skin care services this is hands down the best office in Scottsdale!! Stephanie is exceptional when it comes to skin care and can work her magic in ways I haven’t seen done before. I was extremely impressed! Dr. Williams has a great bedside manner and between the two of them and the staff, I felt super comfortable. I walked away after my first treatment feeling like I had truly found the right place for me. This is the place to go for all your skin care and surgical treatments."- C.D. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"As of right now I’ve only gone in for a consultation; however, I need to say how pleasant the staff & Dr. Williams are! They eased my mind and took the time to answer all my questions. I didn’t feel rushed & felt confident with their depth of knowledge. I plan on getting a few other opinions before officially deciding on the surgeon, but as far as I can tell-Dr. Williams & his staff will be my first choice!"- T.C. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Beautiful facility. Professional staff. I had botox injections done by Dr William's, but would definitely consider him for a surgical procedure. Prices are reasonable and no pressure from staff to do more. Will return!"- K.V. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
Best Candidates for Butt Lift
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 with Butt Lift
Butt lift surgery typically consists of incisions made on top of the butt cheeks. 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 scarring, however, it will not be visible because of the placement of the incisions.
Butt Lift During/After Surgery
Taking approximately 3 hours to fully complete, butt lift surgery is an outpatient procedure generally performed under general anesthesia. 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 usually takes between 3-6 months. With a healthy lifestyle and diet, the surgical results should last a lifetime.
