What Is Butt Lift Surgery?

Butt lift surgery aims to correct loss of skin elasticity due to extreme weight loss or aging. The procedure lifts and tightens the skin of the buttocks and may improve the appearance of cellulite. This is done by removing tissues at the junction of lower back/upper buttock, and tightening skin. As a result, the buttock tissues are elevated and the entire butt is reshaped to create a more youthful, prominent and perky buttock.

If the sag is only slight, a 'butt wedge' excision might be indicated. The tissue is excised at the buttock crease; so, it will leave an unnoticeable scar even if the person wears a bikini. Individuals who have large amounts of loose and hanging buttock skin can benefit from a butt lift surgery. The best candidates for this surgery are those who are generally in good health who also maintain a stable weight through healthy diet and lifestyle.

What Is Involved With Butt Lift Surgery?

Butt lift surgery includes making an incision along the lower back, spanning from hip to hip. Dr. Agha then pulls the excess skin below the incision to lift the buttocks and outer thighs and the extra skin is then removed. The procedure takes about two to three hours to perform, however, it may take longer if there are other procedures performed simultaneously.

What Type Of Anesthesia Is Performed For Butt Lift Surgery?

Butt lifts are performed under general anesthesia.

What To Expect Following Butt Lift Surgery

After buttock lift, patients will experience postoperative pain that can be managed with medications. Patients will also wear abdominal binders for six weeks to help prevent fluid buildup and provide support during the healing process. Patients will also be advised not to sit for a week after the butt lift procedure. Strenuous activities should be avoided for at least 6 weeks after the surgery. Most patients can return to work after 2 weeks, provided there is not a lot of extended sitting. It is important that incisions are not subjected to excessive force, abrasion, or motion. Any severe pain should be reported immediately to the doctor.
