The buttock lift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to improve the appearance of a sagging backside. The procedure can also improve the appearance of cellulite in the buttock area. The buttock lift removes excess skin which may have occurred from weight loss or age, resulting in a flatter and more toned buttock area. The surgery may be performed on its own or in combination with other procedures such as a thigh lift or abdominoplasty. Good candidates for the buttock lift include healthy patients who have realistic expectations for improvement.
The buttock lift takes about two to four hours to complete and may be performed with general anesthesia or with local anesthesia and sedation. The incision is usually located very low on the back, resulting in a scar that can be concealed by most underwear and bikini swimwear. Once the incision is made, excess skin is removed from the buttock area. Liposuction may also be used to improve the contour.
Swelling is common after the buttock lift and typically fades within a period of days to weeks. The buttocks may feel tight for several days, and patients may be most comfortable lying flat. Drainage tubes may be inserted after surgery and these are usually removed within a week. A compression garment will need to be worn for a period of time. Stitches may be removed within seven to ten days. Most patients are able to return to work in about one week, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for several weeks.
