Buttock Lift

Buttock Lift – Description

Buttock Lift is the answer when body weight fluctuates and buttocks “fall” and get loose. Physical exercise is really helpful in most cases.

Buttock Lift – What should be done pre-operatively

Once the Plastic Surgeon has the full medical history of the patient, he should fully inform him/her about the procedure and take some photos of the area to be treated. Before surgery, the patient should note the following:

  • The patient must stop medication or formulations containing aspirin 10 days before surgery.
  • The patient must stop alcohol 7 days before surgery.
  • The patient must stop smoking 1 month before surgery.
  • It is advisable to avoid surgery during menstruation because there is a risk of bleeding

Buttock Lift – Type of anesthesia

Buttock Lift is performed with general anesthesia and one day of hospitalization is required.

Buttock Lift – Surgical technique

During Buttock Lift, loose, excess skin is removed. The plastic surgeon removes a strip of skin from the buttocks area, “raises” the skin from the muscles and pulls it up. This technique creates a youthful and sporty appearance. The duration of the surgery is 2,5 hours and the result is immediate.
