Buttock Lift Surgery Recovery and Postoperative FAQs

Are the Results of a Buttock Lift Permanent?

The results of a buttock lift will be long-lasting, but not necessarily permanent. This is because over time your buttocks may change in size and shape as part of the natural ageing process. Similar changes can occur with dramatic weight loss or gain or pregnancy. For the best long term results, you should try and maintain a stable weight through healthy eating and exercise.

What Effect Will Weight Loss or Gain Have on the Results of a Buttock Lift?

A buttock lift removes excess skin and fat but this can come back with weight gain. This may result in an increase in the size of your buttocks. This can, therefore, change the contour and firmness of your buttocks and you may no longer be happy with the results. Drastic weight loss after your surgery will reduce the size of your buttocks and can leave further excess or saggy skin.
The amount that your buttocks change depends on the amount gained or lost as well as your genetics. Small changes in weight may not have a dramatic effect on the shape and size of your buttocks. Therefore, it is recommended that you try and maintain a stable weight after surgery.
