Surgical Butt Lift FAQs

  • Lift Or Lipo?

    It depends. Both of these procedures address different cosmetic issues. For individuals who have loose skin or wrinkles under the buttock area, a butt lift is necessary. This procedure may still include liposuction if there is excess fat to be removed. Patients with a healthy skin tone who simply want a smaller buttock may see improvements with liposuction alone.

  • Weight Gain?

    A butt lift is recommended for those who are close to or at their goal weight. When there is a significant weight gain after this surgery, the surgical results can be compromised. Similar to any body contouring procedure where the shape and contour of the body is enhanced, adhering to a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and regular exercise will help maintain the results for years.

  • How Bad Is The Scarring?

    As with most skin removal surgeries, there will be some scarring with a butt lift procedure. Dr. Khoobehi will make every effort to minimize scarring and their visibility by meticulously approximating the edges of the incision. Post-surgery care is very important for effective healing of the wound. Compression garments, Endermologies and topical creams will also help. Over time, the scars will fade and flatten out.
