About the Buttocks Lift

A buttock lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of the buttocks. It is used to improve or remove excess skin around the buttocks and thighs for a better aesthetic look. This procedure intends to make the buttocks look less saggy, wrinkled, or dimpled.

It is a popular cosmetic procedure conducted commonly across cosmetic surgery clinics and hospitals located across the world. Buttocks lift is opted by thousands of people each year. This procedure is hugely popular among women who crave for better cosmetic looks.

You may choose to undergo butt lift in case you have:

  • Extra fat in the buttocks
  • Sagging, wrinkles, and excess skin around the buttocks
  • Experienced dramatic weight loss
  • Excess skin that interferes with mobility
  • Issues related to self-conscious because of gluteal area that is not cosmetically pleasant

A butt lift is contraindicated in people who have:

  • Diabetes, hypertension, or any other chronic health problem
  • Thick layers of fat below the loose skin
  • Unstable weight
  • Pregnancy
  • Bad habit of smoking and cannot quit
  • Bad overall health status

How is Buttocks Lift performed?

Different techniques are used to conduct buttocks lift. However, every technique employs the following steps:

  • Creation of an incision at the top of the hips, groin, or at the bottom of the hip cheeks.
  • Removal of the excess skin from the target areas.
  • Tightening of the remaining skin to give a taut look by pulling it up.
  • Liposuction of the butt or the thighs to achieve a contoured look.
  • Suturing and closure of the incisions.

Following the closure of the incisions, a drain may be put in place along with a dressing. A compression garment may be put to tighten the skin and reduce swelling.

Recovery from Buttocks Lift

It is normal to experience mild to moderate pain and discomfort after the butt lift surgery. The surgeon will prescribe you a few medications that will help relieve pain. Additionally, it is normal to experience swelling and bruising after the surgery.

Recovery after buttocks lift may take from a few weeks to almost six months. However, the swelling and bruising disappear with two to three weeks. You cosmetic surgeon is most likely to advise you to stay away from exercising and strenuous exercising for at least three to four months.

The results after buttocks lift are visible almost immediately. However, it may take a few months for the results to develop fully. Remember, a buttocks lift is designed to give your hips a toned and sleek look. It does not add volume or change the shape of your buttocks.
