Butt Lift Overview
A buttock lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the buttocks. It may be done as part of a tummy tuck (belt lipectomy) or lower body lift to contour the buttocks, groin, thighs and abdomen.
Be it from the natural side-effects of aging or weight loss, skin surrounding the buttocks can become loose or sagging. A butt lift procedure tightens the skin around the buttocks and upper thighs to create a firm, taut and shapelier appearance.
Butt Lift Procedure
During a traditional butt lift procedure, incisions will be made under the butt cheeks along the natural fold where the butt meets the upper thighs. Any hanging, loose skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin and underlying tissue will be pulled tight to a new position. The incisions are closed with sutures. Once the incisions heal, the scars left behind will be somewhat inconspicuous because of where they reside. It is important to note that liposuction is sometimes a part of this procedure if excess fat is also a concern.
Butt Lift Recovery Time
Butt lift surgery is an outclient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete. Swelling and bruising will be evident for the first several months, but once this subside clients are usually able to see the surgical results. It could take from 6 months up to a full year for the final results to take shape.
