A buttock lift (butt lift) can help to restore shape due to aging or resulting after a significant weight loss. This procedure can lead to a major improvement in appearance and often leads to a boost in self-confidence.
At the initial consultation, Dr. Casas will examine your areas of concern, noting the skin elasticity and its amount and distribution. Together, you will decide whether a butt lift alone or in combination with an abdominoplasty, liposuction, or other surgical or non-surgical procedures will best achieve your expectations.
What to Expect After Your Buttock Lift
Dr. Casas will conceal the incisions in the waistline and in areas covered by undergarments or bathing suits. The day after surgery, Dr. Casas will encourage you to walk around to promote blood circulation. However, she will ask you to avoid straining, bending, and lifting for at least four weeks to improve scarring and to help reduce swelling. Narrow drainage tubes placed to help reduce swelling and drain excess fluid and to help avoid accumulation of fluids will be removed when they stop draining, typically within one week. Stitches that do not dissolve will be removed within two to four weeks. Dr. Casas will ask you to continue to wear a support garment for a few months after surgery to further minimize swelling. Patients are typically able to return to non-strenuous work within two to four weeks.You will be able to enjoy your reshaped buttock within a few months as your incisions fully heal and swelling has subsided.
Buttock Lift Post-Surgical Care
Manual Lymphatic Drainage, administered by massage, is used after each procedure to reduce swelling. The number of sessions is individualized. It is important that patients follow a healthy lifestyle leading up to and following procedures, including non-smoking, a healthy diet and daily vitamins. Click here to learn more.
