Butt Lift - Exploring the Options with Dr. Brian Evans

The butt lift is not known for being one of the most frequent cosmetic procedures performed. However, it is becoming increasingly popular as the appeal of the curvaceous figure returns. The procedure is also often misunderstood as there are several different variations available. Here is an overview of the options.

Traditional butt lift

Also known as gluteoplasty, this method creates a more pleasing body contour by lifting and tightening skin and repositioning tissue in the buttocks. Excess skin and small amounts of fat are removed where needed to give the area a smoother appearance. This procedure is typically performed on people who have experienced a noticeable loss of skin elasticity due to extreme weight loss or the aging process.


Brazilian butt lift

This has become the procedure most associated with the term butt lift. In this procedure, fat is removed from a select area of the body and then reinjected into the upper quadrant of the buttocks. Most popularly, the fat is removed from areas in the abdomen and waist, helping to create a more appealing curve between the waist and the hips in addition to a more lifted and perky bottom.


Butt implants

Women who want to add some curves to their derriere but have a very low body fat percentage have two options. The first is to gain weight so that the Brazilian lift can be safely performed on them. The second option is the insertion of silicone implants. Most doctors will recommend the Brazilian option. It generates the most natural looking results and also has a lower risk of infection.



The Brazilian procedure will generally have the higher cost. All of these procedures will generally be done under local anesthesia. The surgeon will work to place the scars at or below the waistline to minimize their appearance while in swimwear or undergarments.


Careful selection of a doctor is important for these procedures. You will need to be open and honest with them regarding your goals and be able to trust that they are recommending the best surgery to achieve those goals. The success and final results can be dependent on a surgeon's technique and their artistic eye. Be sure to review plenty of a doctor's before and after photos to be sure you like their work. Some doctor's offices will even use software to morph patient photos so that patients will get an idea of what they could like after surgery.
