Mr Omar Tillo
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
Flabby skin is caused by weight loss, multiple pregnancies and ageing factors. The sagginess of the skin gives you an awkward appearance. Through buttock lift surgery you can get rid of saggy skin. This body contouring surgical procedure is safe and suitable for shaping the buttock area. The right candidates for this surgery are those individuals enjoying good health, but having flabby skin in the buttock region which can occur after significant weight loss.
All patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with buttock lift surgery.
We do not treat patients below the age of 18 years of age.
Healing is better if patients refrain from or quit smoking.
The buttock lift procedure is performed purely for cosmetic purposes, to help improve one’s image and self-esteem.

Buttock lift surgery can be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures such as liposuction and tummy tuck for fat removal and weight reduction. These procedures will get rid of the additional skin and fat deposits at the same time and help you regain your energetic appearance.
The buttock lift cosmetic surgical procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic known as ClearSleep™. It will take around three hours to perform.
The procedure involves the surgeon making incisions in particular areas above the buttocks. The pattern and length of the incision will depend on the quantity of skin to be detached and the specific body portion. Once the excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is pulled over the incision, and stitches are applied to close the incisions.
A buttock lift will be performed as an outpatient surgery. You will be able to return home the same day as the surgery, once the effects of the anaesthetic have worn off.
The minor side effects and discomforts of this surgical procedure include infection, pain, inflammation, blood loss, redness and formation of blood clots.
You can return to daily activities in around four to six weeks.
The scar marks will fade out within six to twelve months.
Apart from minor discomforts, buttock lift surgery offers outstanding body contouring results.
A buttock lift is a surgical procedure which removes excess skin from the buttocks. This generally occurs when there has been a massive weight loss.
Buttock lift is ideally for people who have loose hanging skin on the lower body after experiencing dramatic weight loss. The candidate must have achieved their ideal weight and must not have fluctuating weight.
The procedure gives you both functional benefits by removing massive loose skin and reducing the heaviness of the tissues as well as improves your overall appearance giving you a confidence boost.
A buttock lift is performed under ClearSleep™ anaesthetic. This means you will be asleep throughout the duration of the procedure.
A buttock lift will take around two to three hours to complete.
It will generally take around four weeks to completely recover.
We recommend you to avoid any strenuous activity until you are fully recovered.
You will have to take around two weeks off work.
The side effects are quite rare such as infection, pain, inflammation, blood loss, redness and formation of blood clots.

As this procedure involves an incision, you will have a scar. However, the surgeon will ensure the scar is as minimally noticeable as possible.
