Natural body changes, such as aging and weight loss, can leave your buttocks sagging with unwanted, loose skin. A butt lift is a procedure that offers individuals the opportunity to obtain tighter and more toned buttocks through cosmetic surgery. Bariatric patients, who experience significant weight loss, may have abundant wrinkled and loose skin, especially under the bottom where it meets the upper thigh area. During butt lift surgery, our plastic surgeon, Dr. Erick Sanchez, will remove excess skin and tissue from this area so that it is lifted and secured to create a nice, tight and toned appearance. During a consultation, Dr. Sanchez will walk you step-by-step through the surgery to answer any questions and address any concerns.
A surgical butt lift is reserved for patients who have loose, hanging skin on and under the buttock. Weight loss patients are usually great candidates for this procedure because once the weight has been lost, the skin typically does not shrink back to its natural state. This surgery removes this skin and creates a normal appearance.
What to Expect
Butt lift surgery typically consists of incisions made underneath the butt cheeks, where the cheek meets the upper thigh. During the procedure, any loose or hanging skin will be cut away and the remaining skin will be lifted and pulled securely into a new position. Sutures are used to securely hold the skin in its new position. In some cases, liposuction may be needed to remove existing, unwanted fat pockets. After the healing process, there will be minimal scarring, however, it will not be visible because of the placement of the incision.
Butt Lift Recovery
Taking approximately 2 hours to fully complete, butt lift surgery is an outpatient procedure generally performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation. There will be bruising and swelling near the incision area, and walking will be difficult the first few days after surgery. A full recovery from this surgery is usually evident within 3-6 months. With a healthy lifestyle and diet, the surgical results should last a lifetime.
The overall cost of butt lift surgery varies among patients based on their individual needs as well as if liposuction is needed. Patients should expect to pay between $5,000-$10,000 for this procedure.

I researched abdominoplasty for months before I had a consultation with Dr Sanchez and his team. They were so available and patient with me through all of my questions even before I finally secured my surgery date. My husband attended my post op appointment with me and I was so impressed with how attentive Dr Sanchez was while he educated him on what was about to happen. I knew I would be pleased but my results exceeded my expectations and I’m so extremely happy! Thank you Dr Sanchez and team! You have forever changed my life and I’m so grateful! #snatchedbysanchez

Just had my scar removal surgery today
with Dr. Sanchez and I really recommend him and his practice! Dr. Sanchez is extremely honest, helpful, accommodating, and skilled. He is upfront about expectations as well as understanding of a patient’s wants. His bedside manner is collected, patient, and overall just wonderful . . . even when you’re acting a fool like I was lol He also has the most amazing supporting staff. All the girls who helped me during consultation, pre-op, during the operation, and of course when I go for post-op have been nothing short of amazing - you can’t fake the genuine care they have for patients! I really love this plastic surgery clinic and I definitely recommend!!
Dr. Sanchez performed tummy tuck with 360 lipo I am currently 11weeks post op and I cannot thank him enough for the awesome job he done and with the great bedside manner.... prior to choosing Sanchez I consulted with several local physicians and also surgeons in Miami and Dominican Republic. Decided on Sanchez due to his warm and welcoming and patient manner during my initial consultation. My surgery was on a Friday Dr. Sanchez gave my husband his personal cell phone number to contact him if I had any issues over the weekend that itself made me know that i had chosen the right doctor for my procedure..., I have absolutely no complaints about Dr. Sanchez or his entire staff and my results are amazing.
