Time to focus on you

As you age, the skin on your buttock changes; it can start to become loose and sag. You may also find that the same thing happens after significant weight loss. Exercise can, of course, help strengthen and improve the toning of your muscles in the buttock area, but it can’t fix excess skin that has lost its elasticity. This can affect not just your body confidence, but also the clothes you choose to wear. Buttock lift surgery aims to create a smoother, more contoured buttock shape.

Buttock lift surgery achieves this by reducing extra skin, tightening and smoothing tissue, and removing extra fat. Following the procedure, you can expect your buttocks to look more toned and defined.

Enhance how you look, change how you feel

A buttock lift is used to remove excess skin and fat from the area, liposuction may be used to help bring further definition to the area. A buttock lift can provide you with a more toned and tighter appearance.

Buttock lift results are usually long lasting. You must also remember that it’s important to keep a healthy weight, as additional weight gain could affect the results and would likely need further surgery if the skin was stretched again.

Let’s delve into the detail

As with every surgical procedure, it’s important that you are aware of any potential risks that a buttock lift may pose, however small, so that you can weigh these up against the benefits that surgery can bring.

Your surgeon assistant and surgeon will be happy to discuss any possible complications and give you detailed information. As a guide, they may include pain, bleeding, infections, blood clots, scars, numbness and changes in sensation.

You, reimagined

A buttock lift procedure is recommended if you are close to your ideal weight already and you’re looking to bring a better shape to your buttocks. This procedure shouldn’t be seen as a weight loss surgery. You’d be an ideal candidate if you’ve got enough loose skin and elasticity to allow a good outcome.

The procedure is not recommended if you are significantly overweight, have frequent weight changes, have a medical condition that interferes with wound healing, or if you’re a smoker.

You so deserve this

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that each individual’s procedure is different, so our treatment plans are tailored specifically around your own unique needs. Because of this, the buttock lift cost can vary, depending on the area/s you’re having treated.

We place a great deal of importance on our free face to face, no obligation consultations, during which you can discuss your requirements with your surgeon assistant. They’ll provide a detailed overview of the bum lift cost and the various payment plans we have available. As well as being able to pay for your procedure outright, you can choose to spread the cost over several years via our flexible finance plans. Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about these.

Buttock Lift FAQs

More FAQs
How much does a buttock lift cost?
Every patient’s procedure is different and is tailored specifically to their individual needs. As a result, buttock lift costs can vary, but your surgeon assistant will be able to provide you with the cost of your procedure during your free consultation. It’s important to bear in mind that although cost is, of course, an important factor in your final decision, it should be considered alongside other factors such as level of care, patient safety and surgeon experience.
What does a buttock lift involve?
Your surgeon will make an incision at the top of the buttocks, in the hips, groin, or under the buttock cheeks to remove excess skin and pull the remaining skin taut. If required, liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat and/or help streamline the shape of the bottom.
How long does a buttock lift surgery take?
Buttock lift surgery takes between 2 to 3 hours depending on your own individual needs. It is performed under general anaesthetic, so you’ll likely need to stay in hospital overnight after your surgery.
When can I return to work?
Recovery time varies from person to person. We usually advise you to take two weeks off work, but your surgeon will confirm the time you should take at your consultation.
Will I have scarring?
There will be some visible scarring following surgery, but this will be minimised by keeping the incision lines within natural contours. Over time, any scars should fade.
Are there any risks?
As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks attached, but we'll fully explain these to you so you can feel as confident and reassured before going ahead.

Next steps

Behind the scenes care, to help you take centre stage

Your first appointment

The first step is to meet your surgeon assistant. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering buttock lift surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

Your surgical consultation

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss every aspect of your buttock lift, from the surgical method and recovery time to the benefits and risks, with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable, and happy to answer any questions you have. Your general health will also be assessed and the surgeon will recommend the best course of treatment for you. If you only need to have excess fat removed, rather than excess skin, liposuction may be a more suitable alternative.

If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

The surgery

Buttock lift surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and you may need to stay in hospital overnight after surgery. On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any final questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre.

The procedure takes between 2 to 3 hours depending on the complexity of your own individual requirements. Your surgeon will make an incision along your lower back, from hip to hip. The excess skin below the incision is pulled up, lifting the buttocks. The extra skin and fat is then removed. If additional fat removal is needed, then liposuction may also be carried out. The surgeon will seek to conceal any incision lines within your natural contours, to minimise visible scarring. Buttock lift surgery demands precise surgical skills and a genuine appreciation of body aesthetics to help produce a good result.


You may need to stay in hospital overnight following your buttock lift procedure and staff specially trained in cosmetic surgery patient care will look after you. We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Before you go home, your nurse will talk to you about how to take care of your stitches. It’s important that the wounds are kept dry and the dressings are left intact. We’ll also make an appointment for you to see your nurse or surgeon again to check on your progress.


We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. You’ll need to give your body plenty of time to heal and we’ll give you detailed guidance on the best way to do this. After a buttock lift, we’d recommend that you take two weeks off work to give your body time to heal. You’ll need wear your compression garment for as long as your clinical team advises. You should also avoid smoking whilst you recover as it slows the healing process and can cause serious complications.

Should you have any questions or concerns at all after your buttock lift surgery, you can contact our 24/7 helpline for advice. For your peace of mind, all cosmetic surgery patients have access to our two-year aftercare programme.
