A shapely bottom is an attractive feature, particularly in jeans and bikinis. However, fighting against gravity and the aging process mean that it is really difficult to achieve through exercise alone
Buttock lift surgery is a procedure often performed on patients who have experienced dramatic weight-loss or those who want to attempt to turn the clock back and achieve a perkier and more youthful looking bottom.
This procedure can often involve a combination of liposculpture and removing excess skin and tissue to create the desired shape. The Hospital Group’s specialist cosmetic surgeons will listen to your requirements and advise on the best options available to you.
Excess skin and fat from aging, heredity factors, or after dramatic weight loss in the gluteal area can be drastically improved with a buttock lift. Not to be confused with a “Brazilian butt lift,” which adds volume using fat transfer, this procedure involves only removing skin and fat through surgical excision and liposuction. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful buttock-lift surgery and are pleased with the results.
- Your buttock area will look smoother and more toned.
- The results will be long-lasting.
- Any discomfort caused by excess skin will be alleviated.
Buttock lift surgery costs can vary widely.
A surgeon’s fee will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used
Most health insurance does not cover thigh lift surgery or its complications.Buttock lift cost may include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments
- Prescriptions for medication
- Surgeon’s fee
Buttock lift is a very personal procedure and you should do it for yourself, not for someone else.
In general, candidates for a Buttock are:
- If you have loose, sagging skin and extra fat in your buttocks
- If you recently experienced dramatic weight loss and are close to your ideal weight
- If your gluteal area makes you feel self-conscious
- If the excess skin and fat make you uncomfortable or cause mobility problems
A combination of surgical techniques can be used to reshape and lift the bottom. Excess skin is cut away, and liposuction is often used to remove excess fat. The remaining skin is then lifted by an incision at the top of the buttocks to achieve a tighter and smoother contour.Generally this operation leaves a scar along the upper buttock, but can go down the sides if a further incision is required. If you only have a small area of excess skin at the bottom of your buttocks the scar can usually be hidden by the buttock crease.
The bottom Lift procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic and will require an overnight stay in hospital, if you are combining the procedure with a thigh lift, this will require a two night stay. The stitches will be removed at your local clinic approximately 7 days after your procedure.
We advise that you rest for at least a week after your buttock lift procedure, and be extra careful when sitting. You will be in some pain and discomfort and will have swelling and bruising around the treated area for approximately 4 weeks.
