A buttock lift surgery is also known as belt lipectomy. It improves or/and removes excess, sagging buttock and thigh skin developed as a result of weight loss, aging and gravity, or genetics. By tightening and raising the skin over the buttocks, a buttock lift makes your buttocks appear less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled.

Highly qualified and experienced cosmetic and plastic surgeons at Vimhans PrimaMed Institute of Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery perform a number of success buttock lift surgery each year.

Ideal Candidate

If a balance diet and physical exercise have not responded to sagging buttocks, buttock lift may be right for you. Ideal candidates for buttock lift include:

People with thighs that are dimpled, crinkled, or flabby due to lack of exercise or cellulite
Individuals with loss of skin elasticity in the buttock area due to aging or extreme weight loss
Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations towards what buttock lift surgery can accomplish
Individuals who are committed to live a healthy lifestyle including proper nutrition and fitness
The finest way to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for a buttock lift is through a consultation with an expert at Vimhans PrimaMed Institute of Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery.


A buttock lift at Vimhans PrimaMed is typically performed as an outpatient procedure by using general anesthesia. The procedure may also be done as part of a body lift or as part of a circumferential abdominoplasty.

There is not one overall approach utilized for a buttock lift. Plastic surgeons at Vimhans PrimaMed Institute of Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery will tailor a method that will best suit the body shape and the amount of skin and fat to be removed.

Generally, the incision is made at the waist or slightly below the waist. After the incision, excess skin and fat is often detached from the soft tissue and removed. Then, the skin is tightened and closed in layers.

After the buttock lift surgery, a sterile dressing is applied and a compression garment or elastic girdle is offered that holds the skin, reduces swelling and helps in the natural tightening of the skin.
