What is Butt Lift?
Butt Lift is a procedure aims to lift and improve the sagging and flat appearance of the buttocks mostly after excessive weight loss. Buttocks will gain more round and firm appearance after removing the sagging and excess skin by Butt Lift. Although butt lift can be performed alone, its mostly done by lower body lift, which is part of the body contouring procedure.
What is the Difference Between Butt Lift and Butt Implant?
While butt implant improves the shape and size, buttock lifting improves the appearance of sagging and what excessive skin does. In some selected patients both procedures can be performed either in same session or separate sessions.
Will I Have Scar with Buttock Lifting?
In order to remove the excess skin, cut has to be done at the upper border of two buttocks therefore the scar will be hidden under swimsuit.
Operation and Early Period after Operation
Operation is performed either under epidural or general anesthesia. Incision pattern will be like a seagull showed on above picture. If it is required, the drains will be placed to the surgical area to collect the blood and body fluid for 1 – 2 days. After closing the incisions adhesive tapes will be applied over the scar and there will be no suture taking out session because I use resolvable sutures. The results of gluteal suspension appear immediately after surgery. However, it takes about 3-6 months for the tissues to take its final shape. It takes 1 year for the scar to mature and fade. I don’t want you to sit and lay down on your back for 2 weeks.
