BUTTOCK LIFT

Procedure Description

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 loss.

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 takes 6-12 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.
