Buttock lift surgery is used to improve the shape and tone of buttock skin. Excess
skin and some fat tissue is removed from the buttock area and the skin is advanced
and tightened. If the excess skin extends completely around the entire waist,
this procedure can be combined with abdominoplasty for optimal results.
Good candidates for this procedure have excess skin and sagging of the buttock
tissue with a small amount of excess fat, often caused by significant weight
Surgery and Recovery
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and patients
go home the same day. Recovery time is 7-10 days for most of the
discomfort to subside, and
3-6 weeks until vigorous exercise can begin. A long curved scar is placed
at the upper aspect of the buttock or in the buttock crease, which
months to mature.
Please schedule a consultation and examination so we can discuss the risks
and benefits of this procedure and determine if a
buttock lift is right for you.
Please note, any patient considering cosmetic plastic
surgery procedures should be in overall good health and currently a non-smoker.
