How much would it be to get a butt lift?

Q:

I'm considering a butt lift but I was wondering if there was anything I could get to make my butt a little bigger after getting a butt lift.

A:

A "butt lift" can be accomplished in a number of different ways depending on what the problem is.

Flat, non-projecting buttock:

Filling the buttock with either your body's own fat or with an implant are the most common ways to address buttock deflation. There are pros and cons to each. While fat transfer to the buttock uses your own tissues, retention or "take" of the fat can be somewhat unpredictable and may require more than one treatment. Implants can give you the projection you want but are associated with a higher risk for wound problems and possible infections. Depending on how much "donor" fat you have and what your goals are will determine which is best for you.

Sagging buttock:

in some cases, the above will improve this. In others, it may require removal of some skin around your hip to elevate your buttock.

A:

 A butt lift can be accomplished by several different methods depending upon your present anatomy, medical history and desired outcome. Sometimes a large incision is required in your lower back/ buttock region with either contouring, fat grafting or a buttock implant. 

 Consider a consult with one of the many members of the ASAPS. They are experts in body contouring procedures.  Best,
