Buttock Lift (Gluteal Augmentation)
Candidates For A Buttock Lift
A buttock lift is a procedure that reshapes and contours sagging or flat buttocks. Laxity of the skin of the buttocks and outer thighs are corrected during this procedure, as well.
Extensive weight loss, pregnancy, or aging can result in sagging of the hips and buttock resulting in a loss of feminine curves and excess, and unwanted fullness in the hips and outer thighs. Some women simply have problems that can never be corrected by diet and exercise.
Some people, including many men, simply have very little tissue in their buttocks due to heredity, which can also be helped with a buttock lift.
There are a variety of procedures that can help lift and rejuvenate the gluteal area. Liposuction, fat injection, buttock implants, and excision of excess skin are some options.
A buttock lift is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting. An overnight stay may be required if the buttock lift is combined with other procedures.
After the procedure, you will be required to wear compression garments to help with the reshaping and to decrease swelling. If fat injection is used to augment and lift the buttocks, you will have to minimize putting any pressure on the area after the procedure. You may go back to work within 5-7 days after the procedure. Recovery depends on the extent of your procedure. Your doctors will discuss pain management with you during your consultation.
