There are generally two types of buttock lifts. Buttock augmentation, popularly known as the Brazilian butt lift, removes fatty tissue from other areas of the body and then injects it into the upper curvature of the buttocks. This raises the lower portion of the buttocks upwards to create a smoother, rounder, more youthful and voluptuous contour.
Another type of buttock lift involves true “lifting”, that is, removing skin and fat from the buttocks. Sagging excess skin is removed and the remaining buttock tissues are repositioned into a more youthful appearance. This is often combined with liposuction or a tummy tuck procedure as part of a “Mommy Makeover.”
Your private consultation at Atlanta Face & Body will introduce you to the procedure, which will be performed with a surgeon partner and center. Both butt lift procedures are done under a general anesthetic as an outpatient procedure. Patients typically take 7-10 days to recover and return to work. Patients can return to exercise as soon as they feel comfortable.
