Buttock Lift

Buttock enhancement procedures by Seattle area plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Sattler are designed to rejuvenate the position, volume and contour of the buttock. An ideal shape and volume of the buttock that harmonizes with the female figure is a sign of youthfulness and beauty. Flattening and sagging of the buttocks can create an aged appearance. With significant weight loss and aging, the buttocks can lose volume and tone. Dr. Scott Sattler offers buttock reshaping surgery to Seattle area patients.

Who can benefit from buttock enhancement surgery ?

  • Patient that desire enhanced buttock volume with a more youthful shape and improved projection
  • Patients that have lost a substantial amount of weight and have flattening of the buttocks
  • Patients with skin laxity and sagging of the buttock tissues

There are a variety of buttocks enhancement procedures available to treat these problems.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure uses fat obtained from liposuction which is then placed in the buttocks to enhance volume and shape. Patients with youthful buttock skin tone who desire improved buttock volume, shape and projection may be good candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Sattler performs  a comprehensive liposuction procedure to gather body fat which is then processed and grafted into portions of the buttock that improve roundness, shape and projection. The technique is individualized for each Seattle area patient, as the pattern of buttock volume deficiency is unique to each patient. 

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat grafting procedure can be performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure in our Seattle area surgical center. In order to prevent pressure on the newly enmhanced buttocks, patients are asked not to sit for longer than 20 minutes and to required to sleep on the belly for seven days. After this time period, normal sitting and sleeping positions can be resumed. Patients can return to work comfortably within 7-10 days. Patients can return to exercise as soon as they feel comfortable.

Buttock lift procedure

The Buttock Lift procedure is a component of a lower body lift surgery that addresses circumferential lower body laxity as a result of weight loss or aging. Dr. Sattler uses the buttock lift procedure to improve the contour of flanks, thighs and buttocks after a previous tummy tuck procedure. Sagging excess skin is removed and the remaining buttock tissues are repositioned into a more youthful appearance.

Typical Buttock Lift patients have experienced substantial weight loss through diet, exercise or bariatric (gastric banding and bypass) surgery.

The procedure is done under a general anesthetic and is an outpatient procedure. Patients typically take 7-10 days to recover and return to work. Patients can return to exercise as soon as they feel comfortable.

Dr. Sattler specializes in breast and body cosmetic surgery and is one of the few board certified plastic surgeons in the Seattle, Bellevue, Edmonds, Tacoma and Mountlake Terrace areas offering these advanced body contouring procedures.

Buttock Augmentation with Implants

The buttock can be augmented with a silicone implant to improve shape, volume and projection. These implants are placed through an incision within the gluteal cleft. The procedure typically is done under IV sedation or general anesthesia. Like all procedures that use implants, problems can develop with implant infection and changes in implant position. Because of the use of standardized implants, buttock augmentation with implants cannot be precisely tailored for each individual.

Alternatives to buttock implants, such as the Brazilian Butt Lift, use one's own fat to contour and shape the buttocks is a more precise manner and avoid the use of an artificial implant.
