Butt Lift


Butt lift surgery or gluteoplasty lifts and tightens the skin of the butt. Extra skin in this part is removed and the adjacent tissue is repositioned. This helps to create a youthful and pleasing body contour for the patient.

Benefits of a butt lift:

This surgery is generally beneficial for patients having copious amounts of loose, hanging skin in the area of buttocks and back of the upper thighs. It can also improve the existing cellulite. Due to ageing or extreme weight loss, the skin loses its elasticity. Butt lift brings the normal young look of the skin back. Although, small quantities of fat can be removed along with this procedure, a butt lift does not include fat removal.

Steps of surgery:

1. Mostly a general anesthesia is preferred in butt implant procedures, but some surgeons do it under local anesthesia along with an intravenous sedative. This is discussed before the procedure between the patient and surgeon.

2. An elliptical incision on the upper quadrant of the buttocks is taken to remove the skin in that area. The type of incision can differ according to the area containing excess skin or fat. Incision sites should also be discussed beforehand.

3. After removing the excess skin surgically, the remaining skin is pulled to a new position.

4. Then, the incision is closed by suturing. Additional support can be given to the incision with surgical tape and skin adhesive. After this, Dressings or bandages are used to cover the incision. Small drains may be left under the skin temporarily to drain any excess blood or fluid in case it oozes out.

5. Monitoring is done in the recovery area for at least half an hour. Generally, the butt lift is performed in outpatient department or minor operation room. But sometimes the surgeon asks for an overnight stay with someone to care for the patient.

The final aesthetic result may not be realized properly until up to one year after the procedure.

Scars improve with time and continue to fade for about two years.
