Buttock Lift

Overview

A buttock lift (also known as belt lipectomy) improves and/or removes excess, sagging buttock and thigh skin that has developed as a result of weight loss, ageing and gravity, or genetics.

Your choice of treatment will depend on what shape your body is and what your specific goals may be. You need to look at the size, shape, and the skin quality of your bottom before making any decisions. It is these three factors that will help in arriving at the right operation for you.

Buttock implants or fat transfer may be used to help produce a more rounded shape or liposuction alone may provide the best results. In such cases, the excess fat can simply be sucked out of your rear.
Buttock lifts are usually performed under a general anaesthetic. Nearly all types of excess skin can be improved with the traditional buttock lift as described above. However, sometimes, if you only have a small area of excess skin, especially in the lower buttock area, then surgeons can perform a limited cutting of the skin, and the scars are then left in the buttock crease. In this operation, the surgeon is not really lifting the buttock but rather giving a small area a gentle tightening.

During the traditional operation, half-moon shaped segments of skin and fat from underneath the surface of the skin are removed from the buttock area. The remaining skin and tissue are lifted to achieve a tighter and smoother effect.

The operation is often combined with liposuction and is designed to tighten the skin and deep tissue.


What to Expect

After a buttock lift, dressings will be applied, and a temporary tube may be put in to drain excess fluid from the area of surgery. Firm elastic bandages are then applied to support the area.

After Surgery / Recovery

Depending on the extent of the procedure, you may be able to go home after a few hours, or you might have to stay in the hospital for 1 or 2 days.
Buttock lift recovery generally takes one to two weeks. You can usually return to work in a couple of weeks, and resume vigorous exercise or contact sports in approximately four to six weeks
