A Buttock Lift (also known as belt lipectomy) improves and/or removes excess, sagging buttock and thigh skin that has developed as a result of weight loss, aging and gravity, or genetics. By raising and tightening the skin over the buttocks, a buttock lift makes the buttocks appear less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled.
Plastic surgeons at Sharkawy Clinics offer buttock lifts to help patients reflect the new, more positive image they have of themselves.
A buttock lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the buttocks. It may be done as part of a tummy tuck (belt lipectomy) or lower body lift to contour the buttocks, groin, thighs and abdomen.
A buttock lift alone won't add any volume to the buttocks. But sometimes, a buttock lift is combined with an augmentation procedure to alter the shape or size of the buttocks with implants or fat grafts.
During a buttock lift, excess skin and fat are removed from the buttocks. The remaining skin is then repositioned to create a more toned look.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes cuts underneath the buttock area, where the surgical scar won't be noticeable. Then, the surgeon removes excess skin and fat. To improve the buttocks' overall look, the surgeon may also do liposuction.
After surgery, the main obstacle to healing and recovery is not being able to sit. But gradually, as the surgical cuts heal, you can get back to normal activity, including sitting down.
