What Is A Buttock Lift?
Flabby skin is caused by weight loss, multiple pregnancies and aging factors. The sagginess of the skin gives you an awkward appearance. Through buttock lift surgery you can get rid of saggy skin permanently. This body contouring surgical procedure is safe and suitable for shaping the buttock area. The right candidates for this surgery are those individuals enjoying good health, but having flabby skin in the buttock region which can occur after significant weight loss.
At Centre for Surgery, our surgeons take great pride in dedicating themselves to achieving optimal results that will leave your body looking and feeling rejuvenated.
A Surgical Procedure that Offers Exceptional Results
Buttock lift surgery can be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures such as liposuction and tummy tuck for fat removal and weight reduction. These procedures will get rid of the additional skin and fat deposits at the same time and help you regain your energetic appearance.
The buttock lift cosmetic surgical procedure is carried out by providing general anesthesia, and the time required is about three hours. For removing the extra skin, incisions are made by the surgeon in the particular body areas above the buttocks. The pattern and length of the incision depends on the quantity of skin to be detached and the specific body portion. After removing the excess skin and fat, stitches are applied to close the incisions.
The minor side effects and discomforts of this surgical procedure include infection, pain, inflammation, blood loss, redness and formation of blood clots. The patient can return to daily activities in around four to six weeks. The scar marks will fade out within six to twelve months. Apart from minor discomforts, buttock lift surgery offers outstanding body contouring results.
All patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with buttock lift surgery.
We do not treat patients below the age of 18 years of age.
Healing is better if patients refrain from or quit smoking.
The buttock lift procedure is performed purely for cosmetic purposes, to help improve one’s image and self-esteem.
- An ideal patient must have already achieved their ideal weight and has been in their optimum weight for at least the last 12 months.
- It is for those who wish to get rid of loose hanging skin after a dramatic weight loss.
- It is for those who have undergone bariatric weight loss surgery which usually leads to enormous skin laxity.
Buttock lift surgery is major surgery. It is important to select a surgeon with the appropriate training, qualifications and experience. Mr Sinha is a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with extensive experience in Post-Bariatric (or Post-Weight Loss) Body Contouring procedures.
