Patients considering plastic surgery after significant weight loss at our Woodstock, Alpharetta, and Roswell, locations can often benefit from butt lift procedures. In addition, aging men and women often want loose, sagging buttock skin removed. Dr. Asaf Yalif, our triple board-certified plastic surgeon, performs butt lift surgery, or gluteoplasty, for these reasons on a regular basis.
Ideal Butt Lift Candidates
Most butt lift patients are individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight or are experiencing sagging, lax buttocks due to aging. Men and women requesting information or private consultations for butt lift surgery usually have:
- Excess, hanging, and/or wrinkly skin on their buttocks
- A desire for the skin on their buttocks to be in a higher, perkier position
- Relatively healthy skin tone
As with any elective surgery procedure, you should be a nonsmoker in overall good health.
Understanding Your Procedure
In this procedure, excess skin on and under the buttocks is removed, and then the remaining skin on the upper thigh is lifted to create a tighter, perkier appearance. Dr. Yalif performs butt lift surgery at an accredited surgical center using general anesthesia. It typically takes 2 hours and patients usually return home on the day of the surgery, unless Dr. Yalif combines other procedures with the butt lift. In that case, he may recommend you spend the night at the hospital.
The procedure starts with Dr. Yalif making incisions customized to address your specific concerns, such as at the crease where the thigh meets the bottom of the buttock or above the buttock. He then removes excess skin and pulls up the remaining skin to a higher position and sutures it into place.

Triple Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Keep in mind that butt lift surgery tightens the skin but is not a fat reduction procedure. A combination of skin tightening and liposuction may produce a more desirable result. Many patients combine butt lift with fat transfer to create a fuller look–a popular procedure known as a Brazilian butt lift.
Recovery & Results
Typically, patients who have butt lift surgery will experience bruising and swelling that can last for several months. The full results are usually visible after about 6 months to a year. We recommend that you maintain a healthy diet and postpone vigorous exercise until approved by our medical team. Natural aging and weight gain or loss can impact the improvements, but the skin tightening performed during surgery will last for years.
