About Butt Lift Surgery
The presence of loose or wrinkled skin around your rear end can be discouraging, especially if you diet and exercise regularly. Loose, hanging skin in your buttocks may be caused by natural aging or losing a lot of weight in a short time. If you're ready to restore the appearance of your body, learn more about butt lift surgery (gluteoplasty) at Ethan Baughman Plastic Surgery in Westlake Village, CA to address stretched skin and reveal a lifted, firmer butt. There are quite a few benefits of receiving a butt lift, like a plumper backside in a more lifted position with taut skin underneath. This promising skin tightening surgery by plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Ethan Baughman may be performed in conjunction with other body sculpting surgeries, such as an abdominoplasty, a thigh lift, or a lower body lift for total rejuvenation.

"Dr. Baughman performed surgery on my wife and she could not be happier. The process from start to almost completed has been amazing. Dr. Baughman is readily available via phone or text to answer any of my wife's questions. He even drove to our home to drop off a prescription that was forgotten. She cannot recommend enough that you at least give Dr. Baughman a call for review of your treatment before you finalize with anyone else. If 10 stars could be given it would be."- D.A. / Google / Jun 22, 2021
"Dr. Baughman is fantastic! I had been considering the procedure I ultimately had for years, but did not feel confident about doing it until after my consultation with Dr. Baughman. His professional yet easy going demeanor made me feel comfortable right away. He did a great job of helping me determine the look I wanted and I’m very happy with the results. Before and after the surgery, he was and still is accessible to answer any questions or concerns. I would definitely go with Dr. Baughman if I choose to have any other procedures. Highly recommend!"- K.K. / Google / Jun 21, 2021
"I have to say that I have not experienced another doctor that has ever gone above and beyond like Dr. Baughman has. I had a mommy makeover and every step of the way he was available day and night to answer my questions and any concerns prior to and after surgery. I had a few challenges healing after my surgery and he has worked with me day over day to find out the best course of treatment and to make sure we stay on track. Hands down best care I've ever had."- J.C. / Google / Jun 11, 2021
"I had the pleasure to have chosen him for my mommy makeover. I was very picky and questioned everything after surgery. I must say he won me over right away. He answered all my questions and listened to my concerns no matter how foolish they seemed and never made me feel uncomfortable for asking. He took his time to explain everything in a way I could understand it. I communicated by text with him in case I had concerns before my appointments. HE ALWAYS TEXT BACK! How awesome is that! I can't imagine going to someone who just takes your money and is done with you! Its happening to so many girls going outside the country and they are left all alone with no support from them. Save up if you have to and go to him! His with you 100% of the way! I would go to him again except he won't be practicing here anymore. It would of been nice to see his face too, ( I hear he has a nice smile ) but he always wore his mask. I can't wait to see my end results I'm sure they will be just what I wanted. Thank you Dr. Boughman!"- A.C. / Google / Jun 03, 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.
