What is the so called Serdev Suture buttock lift without implants or transplans? Thanks to Serdev Sutures Lifting method, we collect buttock’s tissues, lift them and fixate them to a stable, higher position. This means that we achieve the lifting without the use of implants, but by patient’s own tissues projection, using only skin punctures. The procedure does not leave scars, because there is no cutting and excision of skin.
Lifing of the buttocks has the additional effect of legs elongation and achieves a better proportion for the entire body. As our patients evaluate the procedure – we lift the flattened and loose form “into the pockets of the jeans”, and even further – over the pockets.
Serdev Suture Buttock Lift
Butt lift without implants and without scars, using “sutures” (briging tissues closer togheter by sewing), is by far the most popular method of Dr. Nikolay Serdev worldwide. He performs the procedure through a few skin puncture points to stably lift the gluteal fibrosis layers to the Serdev sacro-cutaneous fascia (discovered by Dr. Serdev, and therefore bearing his name). This suture fixation maximally guaranties the longevity of the aesthetic effect. The buttock is lifted, rounded and projected.
We use semi-elastic surgical threads, which do not cause tissue trauma. The result is immediate, with short post-operative recovery. Surgery is done under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. There is no necessity of hospitalisation or nursing care. Patients could even be able to travel by car to the clinic for follow-up and care on the day after surgery.
Fio Bulgaro. Fio Elastico…
Serdev Sutures Lifting methods have gained great popularity, especially in Latin America. Dr. Serdev demostrated them and trained a large number of plastic and cosmetic surgoens during courses and congresses in Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, and especially – in Brazil. There, his methods became known as Fio Bulgaro and Fio Elastico Bulgaro. One of the many TV episodes with Dr. Serdev on the topic of beautification and rejuvenation with his mentods can be seen here – Brazilian TV series about Fio Bulgaro.
Butt Lift Without Implants and Without Scars
This technique gained worldwide popularity, due to the results of projecting patient’s own tissues and visual legs elongation – all without the need to use implants or transplants and without leaving scars. Back in 1994, this was the only butt lifting technique and it became a hit in Brazil, where the buttocks hold an aesthetic, sensual and sexual meaning. Due to the specific angle position of the tailbone (coccyx) in Afro-Americans, the buttock lifting procedure and the acquired form were called „Brazilian Buttock lift“. However, due to incorrect understanding, surgeons and patients use this term when they opt for augmentation of the buttocks using fat transplants, fillers and implants.
Unfortunately, on its own, augmentation is not a lifting. On the opposite, it leads to unnatural proportions and look of the buttocks, which droops (sags) because of the additional heaviness. Furthermore, drastic augmentations beyond the correct volumes and proportions are not aesthetic.
There are some complications after mass fat injections (which cannot be vascularised to survive) or other implants in big volumes. They are mostly fistulas, leaking and infections in a high percentage. This is why we do not recommend such injections to our patients after lifting their buttocks via Serdev Suture.

Fat Depots in the Buttocks
In the cases where there is an accumulated fat depot in the buttocks area, we might need to remove it. In our clinic we use VASER for ultrasound liposculpturing.
With quick alteration in pressure, ultrasound selectively targets fat cells, causing them to “implode” and liquefy. This allows us to suck the fatty liquid out, under low pressure. Thus, blood loss and tissue trauma are minimal. Hence, patients can return to work and social life almost immediately. We can remove the fat depots as a standalone procedure or in combination with Serdev Suture buttock lift.
After lifting of the buttocks (and/or in combination with VASER ultrasonic liposculpture), the patient wears elastic garments for a month during hot months, a month and a half in the cold ones.
“[The day after Serdev Suture buttock lift] With bigger self esteem, I am trying to recuperate faster. I have little pain, but hope it will go away very soon. I did not take painkillers, the pain is much less than I expected and is tolerable. Today I managed to see myself from the back and side for the first time, using a mirror, and to me the effect is breathtaking. My butt is lifted and has entered my jeans’ back pockets.”
