A Buttock Lift is undertaken to improve sagging buttock and thigh skin that has developed as a result of weight loss, ageing or genetics. Excess skin and tissue is surgically removed from around the area and the buttock lifted and smoothed to give a more contoured, youthful appearance. Good candidates for a Buttock Lift are those that cannot lose weight or gain the shape they require through dieting and exercise alone, those with too much elasticity in the skin and those with dimpled or wrinkled thighs and buttocks.
A short stay in hospital will be required and results should be visible within a couple of weeks once the bruising and swelling has subsided.
Who is an ideal candidate for a buttock Lift?
The ideal candidate for a Buttock Lift will demonstrate a flat or sagging buttock appearance with enough fat in other regions of their body in order to transfer fat volume to their buttocks. In candidates with insufficient body fats, buttock implants may be a consideration.
What's better a Brazilian Butt Lift or Butt Implants?
There is no right or wrong answer to what is better, both techniques will elevate and plump the buttock. If you're looking for a more natural look the preferred technique will be the Brazilian buttock lift as the fat transfer allows reshaping and contouring more naturally and with less risk of infection. Buttock Implants are preferred by candidates who are naturally thin or body build to create further enhancement.
How long does it take to recover from a Buttock Lift?
Patients may experience mild swelling, bruising and discomfort for several days post buttock lift surgery which can be effectively controlled with medication. Specialised compression garments covering the treated area will be provided and you can return to work and daily activities as soon as you feel fit to do so.
Does the buttock lift require incisions?
The buttock lift involves minor small incisions that become nearly, if not completely invisible with time.
How long will a Buttock Lift last?
A Buttock lift can provide exceptional long term results provided you have a healthy and active lifestyle.
