"I met with a few other Dr’s before seeing Dr. Baughman’s work, what made me want to meet him is seeing his experience with working on women of color that I hadn’t seen the the other Dr’s. When I met the Dr. he was kind, honest and most importantly realistic about my results and expectations. I had some issues with my BP and had to have my surgery rescheduled and the dr was genuinely concerned. Day of surgery I was extremely nervous and the Dr. put me at ease. When it comes to my expectations the Dr. exceeded them, when I would show Him “wish” photos he was positive about my request and responsive with any post op issues I had. I would definitely recommend Dr. Baughman."- T.G. / Google / Jul 14, 2021
Ideal candidates for a butt lift surgery at Ethan Baughman Plastic Surgery will have loose, excess skin hiding the contours of their buttocks. Dr. Baughman often performs butt lifts for mature men and women with sagging skin from natural aging or for young individuals with excess skin from weight loss. Women may notice a change in their body after pregnancy, which is why a butt lift is commonly included in a mommy makeover.
A butt lift is typically performed as an outpatient surgery with general anesthesia. Incisions will be made beneath the fold of your buttocks where the thigh and bottom meet. Excess skin will be removed and the tissue will be lifted to a higher position. The muscles may be tightened as well. If needed, Dr. Baughman may recommend adding liposuction to your butt lift to remove stubborn pockets of fat, which will give you smoother results. Once the procedure is complete, your incisions will be closed and you will be taken to a recovery area for monitoring and care.
What to Expect
Following your butt lift surgery, you can expect swelling and bruising in and around the surgical site, which could last for several months. To ensure a fast recovery and optimal results, you should follow all of Dr. Baughman's post-surgery instructions and attend all follow-up appointments. Your buttocks may feel uncomfortable and sore for the first week. As the swelling decreases, you will start to notice the outcome of the procedure. After recovery, any scars that remain visible can typically be concealed beneath swimsuits and undergarments.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a surgical butt lift cost?
Total costs for butt lift surgery will depend on many factors. In your consultation, Dr. Baughman will talk about your concerns so he can formulate a personalized surgical plan that matches what you want. Once this is done, Dr. Baughman can talk about cost estimates and payments we accept, as well as financing.
What is the difference between a butt lift and liposuction?
A butt lift is better for patients who want to get rid of excess skin. Liposuction removes stubborn pockets of fat, which may be performed with a lift. In your consultative appointment, Dr. Baughman will ask you to list your goals and then help you choose whether liposuction, a butt lift, or both will deliver your best results.
Will I have visible scarring?
Since a butt lift requires incisions, scars should be expected. However, Dr. Baughman tries to make incisions as small as possible. In addition, he places incisions in the creases where your butt meets your upper thighs so the scars are easy to conceal.
What happens if I gain weight after surgery?
Improvements from your butt lift surgery can change if your weight fluctuates too much. This is one reason why Dr. Baughman recommends you be at or close to a healthy weight before butt lift surgery. Dr. Baughman also suggests you follow an exercise routine and healthy diet to help maintain your butt lift results.
Can I also get implants during a butt lift procedure?
A surgical butt lift will give a firmer and higher look to your butt, but it will not give you additional volume. Butt augmentation uses a fat transfer or implants to give you a better shape. For better tone and shape, you can get a butt augmentation and lift.
