About Butt Lift Surgery
Dealing with loose skin and wrinkles under and on your buttocks can become disheartening, especially if you work hard at the gym and follow a healthy diet. However, if you are an individual who has recently lost a significant amount of weight, this condition can be quite severe. For these individuals, the plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. in Southlake, TX offers butt lift surgery to correct skin laxity with skin removal and tightening to produce a shapelier, more appealing bottom. There are many benefits of having a butt lift, such as a firmer buttocks in an elevated position so the skin no longer hangs in place. This popular after weight loss procedure performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Kasden is often combined with other procedures, such as a thigh lift, abdominoplasty, or a lower body lift.

"Dr. Kasden performed both my breast and arm lift procedures. Both were successful with great results. Dr. Kasden spends as much time as needed to explain the procedures and to answer questions. He has a great bedside manner and is very caring. He called my husband to check on my progress after I was discharged from both day surgeries and I was able to text him or speak with him if I had any concerns or questions during recovery. He offers a very personalized type of care and tells you exactly what to expect post surgery. On top of that, he has a great sense of humor and makes patients feel comfortable. I really appreciated that. Highly recommend him. Sharon, who is the office manager, is extremely friendly and also very caring. She always inquires how I am doing when I call or come in for post-op visits."- S. / Healthgrades / Feb 22, 2020

"He is Doctor and Surgeon You Can Trust! - Dr Kasden will talk with you at length about what your goals are and how he can help you achieve them. He will give you honest advice on what to expect every step of the way. This is my second surgery procedure with Dr Kasden. My first was a neck lift with coblation on my face to get rid of fine lines. I am so happy with both results. I have also received Botox many times- always with natural results. He is a surgeon that will follow up on his patients much more than any other doctor I have ever known. He really cares! Sharon, who runs the office, is a joy as well as being professional and helpful. I am grateful to have found Dr Kasden and his staff!"- C. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2020
Candidates for a butt lift procedure generally seek a surgical intervention when diet and exercise will not change their sagging skin. When the skin has lost its elasticity, it is very difficult to reshape the buttocks without a skin removal or skin tightening correction. Dr. Kasden may recommend a butt lift if you have maturing skin or are younger with excessively loose skin from weight loss. Women who have had one or more pregnancies may also see a change in the firmness of the skin around their buttocks.
If the butt lift is the only procedure taking place on the day of your surgery, it will most likely be in an outpatient setting. The procedure itself takes about two hours to complete with general anesthesia. An incision will be made underneath the fold of your buttocks, where the back of the thigh meets the butt. Extra skin will be trimmed away so that the remaining skin can be pulled into a higher position. The muscles will be tightened as well. Liposuction may be included in the procedure for optimal results. Once the procedure is complete, your incisions will be sutured closed and monitored in the recovery area.
What to Expect
After undergoing butt lift surgery, you should expect bruising and swelling on and around the procedure site, which may last a few months. It can be difficult to sit normally for some time, so you should follow the medical advice given to you. You will need to keep all follow-up appointments and maintain the health of your surgical incisions. You can expect the area to be painful for several days. Once the swelling subsides, you will begin to see the results of your surgery. Full results may not be seen for up to a year after surgery. After the healing process, any visible scarring can usually be concealed under undergarments and clothes. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office for assistance.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a surgical butt lift cost?
The price of a surgical butt lift procedure will vary from patient to patient. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kasden will discuss your desired outcome to create a customized treatment plan that fits your budget. Dr. Kasden will also talk with you about specific out-of-pocket costs and payment plans.
What is the difference between a butt lift and liposuction?
A butt lift removes excess skin while liposuction removes excess fat. Depending on your needs and goals, you may want a butt lift, liposuction, or a combination of both. During your consultation, Dr. Kasden will help you decide what should be included in your surgical plan.
Will I have visible scarring?
Like with most surgical procedures, scarring is to be expected. However, Dr. Kasden will work to make scarring as minimal as possible. Incisions are made in the natural folds and contours of your body so that they are better concealed.
What happens if I gain weight after surgery?
The results of a butt lift procedure can be compromised if there is significant weight gain after the procedure. Therefore, a butt lift is only recommended if you are close to or at your goal weight. It is also recommended that you stick to a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain your results after butt lift surgery.
Can I also get implants during a butt lift procedure?
While a butt lift procedure creates a firmer and tighter appearance to the buttocks, it does not add volume. A butt augmentation is a procedure that uses implants to create more volume in the buttocks. Additionally, a fat transfer procedure uses your own fat from elsewhere in your body to then inject it into the buttocks. Both a butt augmentation and fat transfer procedure can be combined with a butt lift surgery if you want to further enhance your results.
