Following substantial amount of weight loss due to aging or weight reduction surgery, both skin and tissues may become less elastic and less conforming to the reduced body size. As a result, buttocks can sag and cause hanging pockets of unsupported skin. A buttock lift can improve the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin by removing excess sagging fat and skin, thereby adding contour to the waist, hips and back of the thighs.
While the desire for achieving curvaceous, rounded lower back can be termed as a luxury for the excited stage and screen enthusiasts, for bariatric surgery patients, a butt lift can be the final phase of their total weight loss experience. Butt lifts are also performed in conjunction with other age-defying procedures or as a part of a total body lift or a lower body lift.
What is buttock lift?
Buttock lift surgery – also known as belt lipectomy – is the surgical procedure that improves the appearance of buttocks by raising and tightening skin over them. The procedure is performed on the buttocks that have lost their shape and have become saggy because of certain factors like aging and significant weight loss. Buttock lift surgery results in less saggy, wrinkled or dimpled buttocks.
Who are the candidates for buttock lift?
If weight loss efforts and fitness haven’t helped you achieve your desired goals, the procedure of buttock lift is an ideal option for you. You can be a good candidate for the procedure of buttock lift surgery if you have realistic expectations with the results of surgery and you are experiencing any of the following issues.
How buttock lift surgery is performed?
The procedure of buttock lift is performed on outpatient basis under general anesthesia. During the surgery excess skin and sometimes – if required – excess fat tissues are removed to lift buttocks and make them appear firmer and shapelier. For removal of skin and fat, incisions are made at waist or slightly below it, in the hips, groin or under the cheeks. After making incisions, excess skin and fat are removed after separating them from soft tissues. The incisions are then closed after tightening it.
Results and recovery of buttock lift:
The results of buttock lift surgery become visible nearly immediately after the procedure but it may take few months to get the final results after the swelling resolves completely. The surgery does not increase the size of buttocks but it gives more toned appearance to them. The results of buttock lift are highly effective and long lasting. If we talk about recovery period, you may feel mild to moderate pain and discomfort but these symptoms are temporary and our plastic surgeons prescribe oral and topical medications to resolve them. During your recovery period, you also need to avoid strenuous activities and vigorous exercise.
Side effects of buttock lift surgery:
Buttock lift – when performed by an experienced and well trained plastic surgeon – does not cause any severe complications but certain minimal side effects are associated with it like any other invasive surgical procedure. Possible side effects include.
It is important to mention here that all the side effects are temporary and can be resolved by following pre and post surgical instructions and prescriptions of surgeon.
Whether as a need or craze, the interest in butt-enhancing surgeries such as butt implants, butt lifts and fat grafting to the buttocks never declined even when the economic pressures diminished other popular surgeries.
