What Is a Buttock Lift ?

A Buttock lift, also referred to as a buttock lift, is a procedure that is designed to improve the look of sagging or dimpled skin on the buttocks and outer thighs. Usually, the surgery is indicated for people who have lost a large amount of weight or have undergone post-bariatric surgery. The surgery is also designed for anyone whose buttocks sag as the result of genetics, gravity, or the aging process.

How Is a Buttock Lift Performed?

A Buttock lift is performed on an outpatient basis with general anesthesia applied beforehand. Typically, the doctor makes an incision or incisions along the waist or just beneath it. After the incision has been made, fatty layers and excess skin are trimmed and removed. The remaining skin is pulled upward and secured with sutures. Usually, the surgery is performed in conjunction with tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) or as part of a body lift procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Buttock Lift?

You are a good candidate for a Buttock lift if your skin has lost elasticity as the result of excessive weight loss or due to the aging process. Healthy individuals can also benefit from the surgery if their buttocks or thighs exhibit dimples or flab as the result of cellulite. If your expectations are realistic and you follow a nutritious diet and regular exercise regimen, then you are a good candidate.

What Is Involved in the Healing Process?

After the procedure, dressings are applied, and the patient is outfitted with a compression garment in the form of a girdle. The girdle minimizes swelling and assists in tightening and toning the skin. Any discomfort is managed by pain medications, which will be prescribed by your doctor. Generally, swelling and bruising will dissipate after a period of three weeks. The healing process itself usually takes up to six months overall. Strenuous exercise is not permitted for three months following the surgery.

What Are the Typical Results?

Results are immediate. However, it will take at least three months before the final results of the surgery are realized. While a Buttock lift does not enhance the shape of the buttocks, it will give the skin in this area a firmer and smoother appearance. As long as you maintain a healthy diet and follow a regular exercise routine, the results you receive will be long-lasting.
