Before and After Photos

Benefits of Buttock Lift

A bum lift will greatly improve your appearance. Some of the common benefits enjoyed by our patients are:

  • Improved gluteal shape, size, and definition. This treatment will reshape your buttocks, helping to achieve a younger, more shapely result.
  • Better self-confidence and body image. Patients often experience a boost in confidence after they have regained their youthful profile!
  • A normalized body shape after major weight loss. A large weight loss can leave large amounts of excess skin around your body. A common area for excess skin to gather is your buttocks. A large weight loss will likely leave your buttocks flat-looking. Patients may be embarrassed or uncomfortable with these results.

If you have lost a large amount of weight you should be feeling good about your body. An excellent way to show off your results and hard work is with a butt lift!

Personal Consultation

In your personal meeting with Dr. Bachelor, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and desired aesthetic. He will be attentive and ask about past procedures, allergies and your current medications to get a good understanding of your general health. He will perform a physical examination of your buttocks, which will include photographs and measurements to better strategize your treatment. 

Dr. Bachelor will walk you through the surgery, potential risks, recovery process, and expected results. We encourage our patients to ask lots of questions and voice any concerns. Below we have a guideline of questions meant to address popular topics and help surface your own curiosities.

  • Do you have before-and-after photos of butt lifts?
  • Do you think any of these photos are similar to my situation?
  • How long do you suggest I take off from work?
  • When will I see my final results?
  • Will these results be long-lasting?
  • Is recovery uncomfortable?
  • Are stitches used and, if so, when will they be removed?

These questions should help you navigate your own concerns and thoughts. Towards the end of your consultation, you and Dr. Bachelor will pick out a time and date for the surgery. He will instruct you how to prepare for the surgery and recovery process.


There a few ways to prepare for your surgery and recovery. For your best results, you will need to follow Dr. Bachelor’s instructions. 

  • Set up a recovery area. This area should be complete with extra pillows and all your necessities within arms reach. This includes prescription medications, snacks, water, and entertainment. Having a designated space that is ready for you when you get home from the hospital will improve your recovery.
  • Enlist help. It will help to have a friend around after surgery to help you adjust to movement. Remember, you won’t be able to drive while on pain medication so if you need to go anywhere you will need assistance. You will also need a ride home after you have been released from the hospital., Make sure someone is available to transport you and stay with you the first night of your recovery.
  • Wear comfy clothes. The morning of your appointment you will want to shower and dress in loose, comfy pants that won’t apply pressure to the treated area.

These are just some helpful tips on how to prepare for the impacts of surgery. For best results follow Dr. Bachelor’s instructions and call our office if you have any questions.

Buttock Lift Techniques

Butt lift surgery is an inpatient surgery requiring an overnight stay in the hospital or surgical suite. We begin the procedure by administering a general anesthetic, so you sleep through the operation. An incision is placed along your lower back. Then we elevate the loose skin that resides below the incision, which lifts and contours the buttock and thigh area(s). Any remaining skin is then trimmed away and the incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures.

Post Operation Recovery

Recovering from a butt lift

Typical recovery time is about 2-4 weeks after butt lift surgery. You may experience discomfort for the first several days of recovery and will require help around the house as you heal. Prescription pain medication will help you manage discomfort during this time. Drains will be placed to help remove excess fluids. Dr. Bachelor or his staff will inform you how to care for these drains.

Surgical dressings are typically removed within two to three days of surgery, at which point most patients regain most normal mobility. A supportive garment will need to be worn to help your bum heal properly and to help it adjust to its new shape. This garment will need to be worn for a few weeks until your backside is healed. Follow-up appointments will help Dr. Bachelor monitor your recovery and make any adjustments to ensure a healthy healing process.


You will immediately notice a difference in your backside. These results will improve as swelling decreases and your body adjusts to its new contours and placement. Every patient has a unique body and will experience a different recovery timeline. Final results will be noticeable after a few months.

After this treatment, patients enjoy lifted perkier buttocks. These results are long-lasting and with an active, healthy lifestyle will last for years!

Complementary Procedures

Butt fat transfer

A fat transfer buttock augmentation is a common enhancement technique and is referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift. This treatment reshapes the buttocks while enhancing the shape further. The fat transfer element makes up for any lost volume and reshapes the buttocks. A fat transfer occurs either in a separate appointment or before your buttock lift surgery. A fat transfer is performed with liposuction techniques and syringes. 

In your personal consultation with Dr. Bachelor, you will have the opportunity to discuss the benefits of combining a butt lift with a fat transfer. The Brazilian Butt Lift technique removes fat from an area in the body that has excess fat stores, commonly the love handles and lower back. Once the area has been agreed upon and examined by Dr. Bachelor, a treatment plan will be developed and an appointment scheduled. 

A fat transfer is performed with either local or general anesthetic and small tools. Miniscule incisions will be placed in your predetermined area(s) and Dr. Bachelor will gently remove fat cells with a cannula (thin hollow tube) topped with an aspirator (a suction device).

Once your fat has been collected, it will be purified and placed in syringes. The fat will be strategically injected into your upper buttocks to improve the volume and texture of your backside. The fat placement will also enhance the appearance of your lift. For your best results, you will need to avoid sitting for up to three weeks. Avoiding pressure on your backside will help your bum adjust to its new shape. A fat transfer buttock augmentation provides naturally-enhanced improvements to your appearance. If you want a perky backside, a buttock lift combined with a fat transfer will give you the results you desire!
