Butt Lift The butt lift is a relatively new procedure. The buttocks lift can be performed as a solo procedure or as part of the total body lift. The procedure improves the contour of the buttock and makes it 'perkier'.

Methods?

1. Removing excess skin and tightening the skin above the upper part of the buttocks will lift the buttocks.
2. The butt can also be lifted with fat injections or implants. The fat injection procedure is also referred to as the Brazilian butt lift. In addition to more volume and prominence, the fat injections give the butt more projection or lift.

What do I require?

If the buttocks are very large, the patient may first benefit instead from liposuction to reduce the overall size of the buttock. If, on the contrary, you want larger buttocks with more projection, you might be better served with a butt implant or fat injection to the buttocks. Implants or fat injections will fill out the butt and lift the buttocks. Fat injections to the butt are also known as the brazilian butt lift.

However, if your buttocks are sagging, but you do not want an augmentation, the butt is lifted by removing tissue and tightening skin. If the sag is minimal, a 'butt wedge' excision might be indicated. The tissue is excised at the buttock crease. This leaves a relatively unnoticeable scar at the buttock crease. This butt lift technique cuts out tissue at the junction of lower back and buttock. This allows for a true elevation of the buttock tissues and a reshaping of the entire butt. In combination with a liposuction of the hips or thighs it can result in a dramatic reshaping of the entire backside.

Butt Lift Surgery?

The butt lift can be done under 'twilight' anesthesia or general anesthesia. For this butt lift technique, an ellipse of skin and fat is cut out from the upper part of the buttock at the junction with the lower back. We are very careful to hide the scar so that it is hidden even with a bikini bathing suit. The butt lift is easily tolerated as an outpatient procedure.

Can both lifting techniques to done simultaneously?

Yes, we can lift the butt by removing excess skin and then also inject the buttocks with fat.

Recovery period?

The patient is advised not to sit for one week so as not to stress the operated area. You may return to work in one to two weeks if you do not do a lot of extensive sitting.
