Buttock lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure to treat patients who have sagging buttocks. During a buttock lift procedure, excess fat and skin is removed, underlying tissues are reshaped, and the remaining skin is redraped. The result is a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance. It may be performed as a part of an abdominoplasty, a thigh lift, a buttock augmentation, and a lower body lift. It may also be done as a solitary procedure.Learn More
If you are healthy, have problems that can be solved by a body lift surgery, and have realistic expectations then you are a candidate!
A buttock lift may be an ideal treatment for you:
The outcomes of buttock lift can be analyzed in two main categories: aesthetical and psychological.
Because of aging, weight fluctuations, and genetic factors, you may experience changes in different parts of your body including your buttocks. It is very common to have tissue and skin laxity and a sagging appearance, in the gluteal area. After successfully losing a significant amount of weight, you may have been left with sagging skin. Your skin may have lost its elasticity, simply because of aging. Luckily, buttock lift is a highly effective treatment. After the procedure, your buttocks will look firmer and smoother.
The psychological outcomes of the procedure are as important as the physical ones. Sagging buttocks with excess and loose soft tissues, a dimpled appearance, a stretched skin, and not well-balanced contours can be psychologically distressing. You can feel like you are older than you actually are. You may not be able to enjoy your weight loss. You may find it hard to decide what you will wear. You may not like the way you look in the mirror. Therefore, after the procedure, strong psychological benefits are expected. You will start to love your body more.
After the surgery, there will be stitches on your incisions. There will be dressings on your incisions and you may need to wear compression garment for a while. Right after the surgery, it is normal to experience some pain and discomfort. You may also experience some bruising and swelling. Pain and discomfort will improve after a few days. Until then, pain can be successfully controlled by pain medication. Small, thin tubes may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain excess fluid and blood. Your stitches will be removed after 1 week. Gentle walking is safe and recommended.
Bruising and swelling will improve quickly but they will last for several weeks. You will be able to return to work or school 2-3 weeks after the surgery. During the first week, you should avoid directly sitting on your buttocks. At this time, you need to sleep on your side or stomach. And you should avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. You will need to wear a compression garment for several weeks. After a few months, most of the recovery will be completed.
