There are different buttock lift methods and procedures that can be used based on the patient’s needs. Liposuction, implants and lifts are all used to sculpt the buttock region into a desired shape. The operation removes excess skin and lifts the buttock, resulting in an optimal position with tighter skin and texture. Dr. Bootstaylor must make incisions in the skin to do this, but scars can usually be placed so that they are hidden beneath a swimsuit.
During a buttock lift, excess skin is removed and the buttock is raised to a higher position on the body. In combination with a lift, some patients desire an augmentation that utilizes implants. This additional procedure may be performed at the same time or a later date.
Most patients undergo general anesthesia during buttock lift surgery. This means the patient is asleep and feels no pain during the operation. The location of your surgery depends on your needs. You’ll feel no pain during the operation itself, and any discomfort after the buttock lift procedure will be managed with prescribed medication.
You will likely be able to return to work about one to two weeks after surgery, but patients usually need about six weeks before pursuing any strenuous activities. During the recovery process from buttock lift surgery it is important to be mobile to guarantee good circulation and promote healing.
