A buttock lift is a surgical procedure which removes excess skin and fat in the gluteal area. A buttock lift will result in a more smooth and toned appearance of your buttocks. In addition to surgically removing excess skin, liposuction may be performed to further shape the buttocks to the desired look.
This more-youthful looking contour is a solution to the stretching of skin caused by aging, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations. A buttock lift is also a good solution for those with low-hanging buttocks who desire a more lifted and reshaped appearance.
Depending on the desired results, area of excess skin, and recommendation of your surgeon, a buttock lift may either be performed as a solo procedure or as part of a body lift.
Buttock lift surgery is typically an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Each buttock lift surgery is custom-tailored to the individual’s problem areas and needs within the gluteal area. Dr. Eagan will work with you to customize a procedure that will best suit your body, needs, and desired look.
After your buttock lift is performed, some discomfort, bruising, and swelling is normal. These side-effects should only last two to three weeks. Dr. Eagan will insist that you refrain from strenuous activity for about three months. Full recovery from buttock lift surgery will take about four to six months.
