Who is a candidate for butt lift surgery?

The best candidates for butt lift surgery are individuals who are experiencing the negative effects of aging, which is often characterized by loss of volume, elasticity and sagging skin. Also, San Mateo butt lift patients who have recently lost weight and/or undergone bariatric surgery and now wish to tighten their backside are eligible for one or more butt lift procedures, which can be combined to produce the most satisfactory results.

The Brazilian butt lift is another option for patients who may have a flat backside and wish to increase the size of their derriere and restore perkiness. Our San Francisco plastic surgeons perform several butt lift procedures, including:

  • Butt lift and/or butt liposuction
  • Brazilian butt lift (fat injections)

How is buttock lift surgery performed?

Butt lift and/or butt liposuction is a frequently performed procedure that significantly reduces excess skin and fat of the buttocks. The procedure involves an incision along the lower back area. Once the incision is made, we may utilize a liposuction device to remove the excess fat. Next, excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is tightened above the upper part of the buttocks.

Brazilian butt lift, also known as fat injections, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that allows San Francisco buttock lift patients to obtain youthful-looking, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile. The fat transfer technique involves extracting fat from other areas of the body via liposuction. Next, the fat is purified and re-injected into the buttocks. The process may involve a large number of injections until desired results are achieved. The aesthetic effects of the Brazilian butt lift are temporary and touch-up treatments are recommended to maintain the desired appearance.

Recuperation After Butt Lift Surgery

Recovery time following butt lift and/or fat injections is minimal and many of our patients return to their daily activities within three to five days. Because butt restoration procedures are extremely customized cosmetic treatments, the recovery time and process generally varies from one patient to another. Dr. Liu and his team are highly regarded plastic surgeons in San Francisco who are well known for providing patients with detailed information about each procedure and quality post-surgical care.

Which is better if I want buttock augmentation: a buttock implant or fat grafting?

How long does the butt lift procedure take?

It depends upon the area treated. Generally speaking, an hour for lips and six for a full face (when combined with a facelift procedure). Buttock fat grafting takes anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.

How is fat grafting different from other fillers?

Synthetic fillers are temporary. It is used to build lasting structural changes in the face and body. It is biocompatible, versatile, stable, long-lasting and natural appearing.

Is fat grafting always successful?

Successful fat grafting is dependent upon the nature of the fatty tissue, the methods of harvesting, transfer and placement, and the preparation of the patient. Fatty tissue is complex and delicate and easily damaged. It takes complete precision because of the millimeters involved in facial elements. Fat is very small and grafting is a painstaking procedure as it is injected in layers to adhere together.

Which is better if I want buttock augmentation: a buttock implant or fat grafting?

Buttock implants have the potential of moving or sliding in the pocket where they are placed. Fat grafting is particularly attractive to most people because you are taking fat from fatty regions of the body and using this to contour the buttocks. Best of both worlds! Once the fat lives in its new location, fluid collections and mobile implants are not a concern.
