You deserve to be proud of your weight loss achievements, but a sagging butt can keep you from enjoying your results. A butt lift can remove excess skin and fat to tighten and lift your buttocks. It is typically performed on those with a large amount of loose skin due to weight loss.
What is a Butt Lift?
A butt lift, as performed at Winter Park Plastic Surgery, is not a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) and is not intended to increase the size of your buttocks. A butt lift restores a firmer, proportionate appearance by removing loose skin and fat. It can be performed alone or as part of a more comprehensive body lift procedure. While a butt lift will not increase the size of your buttocks, it will make them look more shapely and rounded.
*Individual Results May Vary
How Does a Butt Lift Work?
The details of your butt lift procedure depend on your treatment plan and whether you have other procedures. A butt lift alone lasts two to three hours under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Scott Greenberg makes an incision above the buttocks at the level of the hips. The length of the incision may vary. Dr. Greenberg will use this incision to remove excess skin and fat, lifting your butt and improving its shape.
What is Recovery Like After a Butt Lift?
Your butt lift will be performed at the Winter Park Plastic Surgery accredited surgical facility or a hospital. Dr. Greenberg may recommend staying overnight, especially if you have had several procedures.
You can expect swelling, bruising, and discomfort after surgery, especially for the first few days. You will begin walking cautiously within the first day or two to promote blood flow. You should plan for at least two weeks off from work and more if you have an active job. During your follow-up visits, Dr. Greenberg will check your progress and tell you when to resume your usual activities.
What Other Procedures Can Be Performed With a Butt Lift?
Dr. Greenberg frequently combines a butt lift with an outer thigh lift. You may also have an inner thigh lift to improve the appearance of your entire lower body. You can have a butt lift as part of body contouring surgery. This customized procedure addresses all your areas of concern to remove loose, sagging skin and reveal your slimmer figure. Dr. Greenberg plans each body contouring surgery to minimize the number of incisions while achieving maximum results.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Butt Lift?
A butt lift works best for those who have achieved their weight loss goals and maintained a stable weight for several months. Good candidates have sagging skin on their buttocks and want to address it. Candidates should commit to a healthy lifestyle to maintain their results.
