Butt Lift Surgery

Buttocks reshaping is a procedure intended to give you a more lifted, perky and shapely buttocks. This is achieved through the liposuction and transfer of your existing unwanted fat from other areas of the body (also known as a Brazilian butt lift), through the use of implants, or a combination of both. Whether it is more curves you are looking for, better projection, or simply a more balanced and proportionate look for your body frame, Dr. Christopoulos will expertly guide you through the selection process to choose the best procedure for you.

Ideal Candidates for Buttocks Reshaping are patients who wish to:

Increase the size of their buttocks to better match their frame
Increase the fullness, roundness and projection of their buttocks
Correct loose sagging buttocks that have resulted from weight loss or the aging process

About the Procedure

Dr. Christopoulos performs her surgeries in a fully accredited outpatient surgical facility. The procedure can take anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on the technique used and each patient’s individual anatomy.


Dr. Christopoulos, in conjunction with an anesthesiologist, will use general anesthesia to keep you comfortable and safe during your procedure.


The location of your incisions depend on the technique used and the size and shape of your buttocks.

In a Brazilian Butt Lift, Dr. Christopoulos makes small inconspicuous incisions in areas of the body such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs and arms to perform liposuction and carefully harvest unwanted fat from other areas of your body. This fat is then purified and carefully and artistically placed into your buttocks via small incisions to create a fuller, curvier and more youthful shape.

In a Buttock Implant procedure, incisions can be made either at the top or the bottom of each buttock, hidden in a natural gluteal crease. Through these incisions a soft silicone implant is placed within your gluteal muscle on either side.

Recovery and Results

The length of recovery and healing process does vary from individual to individual. It is natural to expect some bruising and swelling after your procedure. While your results will be immediately visible after a buttock enhancement procedure, it may take several weeks to months to see your final result. Most patients can resume normal daily activities within 10-14 days and return to work within 2-3 weeks. Dr. Christopoulos will advise you to refrain from strenuous activity for several weeks after your surgery and will also guide you on the proper type of compression garments that may be necessary to minimize swelling and improve your results. The results of your buttock enhancement will be long lasting and will give you the more youthful, curvaceous and shapely look you desire.
