Buttocks Lift Surgery
Skin laxity is the defining characteristic of patients who are candidates for buttocks lift. It could be caused by genetics, although it is more frequently seen in patients who have gained and lost an excessive amount of weight. Usually done with other procedures such as thigh lift or abdominoplasty, buttocks lift involves the removal of excess skin and fat at the thigh and lower back area, resulting in tighter skin of the gluteal region which creates an improved, more rounded, firmly shaped and toned butt and thigh contour. There could be some swelling immediately after the operation, but it usually subsides after several weeks to months. Sutures are removed on the fifth or tenth day after the procedure. This is done under general or regional anesthesia, with the patient confined for a few days in the hospital.
