One of the more interesting trends in body contouring has been the popularization of "butt lifts". As the precise definition of butt lift is somewhat confusing, it may be better to more generally define butt lift as simply butt rejuvenation. Often previously neglected in body contouring, as societal trends have changed, surgeons are now focusing more attention on creating more voluptuous and curvy butts. When carefully planned and executed, improving the contour of the butt is an excellent solution to achieving a sexier profile.
Butt rejuvenation encompasses many different surgical techniques. What many consider a 'butt lift' or 'Brazilian butt lift' (BBL), is fat grafting to the butt. Fat is harvested by liposuction from one part of the body and then 'reinjected' under the skin of the butt to improve overall shape and produce a more full and rounded caboose. The benefit of this approach is you remove volume from where you don't want it (waist, lower back, and inner and outer thighs), and put the volume where you do want it (typically outer and upper buttock).
The butt can also be shaped by direct excision of skin and fat from the low back and area directly above the buttocks. Although this is a more powerful technique, it is also a more involved surgery/recovery, and requires placement of a long scar along the top of the buttocks.
