The backside can suffer changes over time that can make you self-conscious about your appearance. You might notice the buttocks begin to sag and droop, often because gravity causes the skin to stretch and become loose. If you have lost a significant amount of weight, you may also realize that your skin does not conform to your slimmer frame, leaving you with loose folds of skin that interfere with your final results and your ability to wear smaller sizes comfortably.

Dr. Saad can address all of these concerns with a surgical procedure known as a buttock lift. This treatment focuses on removing excess skin and isolated areas of fat from the buttocks, giving you a perkier, more youthful backside that makes you more confident in your jeans and bathing suits. This procedure offers results that will last for many years, giving you a high degree of value and satisfaction from a single surgery.

Are You a Candidate?

A buttock lift may be a good choice for you if you are a non-smoker in good health and you have realistic expectations about what this surgery can do for you. A buttock lift alone will not dramatically add volume to the backside, but it can be combined with an augmentation procedure to create more voluptuous curves, while at the same time helping you achieve the lift and firmness you are looking for.

A buttock lift may address any or all of the following concerns:

  • Loose skin in the buttock area, due to significant weight loss or aging
  • Buttocks that have begun to sag and droop over time
  • Excess folds of skin, causing discomfort or chafing
  • The formation of cellulite in the buttocks and upper thigh area
  • Feeling self-conscious about your appearance due to changes to your buttocks

Dr. Saad will discuss your precise cosmetic concerns to determine whether a buttock lift will best serve your needs. It is important that you are willing to commit to maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle after your surgery to preserve your results for as long as possible.

Buttock Lift Options

A buttock lift may be performed as a single procedure, but it can also be done in conjunction with other procedures to help you enhance your aesthetic results. Some of the procedures commonly combined with a buttock lift include:

Liposuction

When loose skin is combined with isolated areas of fat, Dr. Saad may use a variety of liposuction techniques to sculpt the buttocks and create a more attractive overall contour.

Thigh Lift

This surgery may be recommended if your loose skin and cellulite extends from the buttocks to the upper leg. The thigh lift produces similar results to liposculpture, but is focused on shaping and sculpting the leg from the hips to the knees.

Body Lift

When a buttock lift is requested after massive weight loss, it is often a part of a full lower body lift that removes loose skin from the entire area between the midsection to the knees. While this comprehensive procedure involves a longer recovery period, the dramatic results achieved can be worth the investment for the right patients.

About Your Procedure

A buttock lift alone may be performed using local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Saad will make a small incision at the top of the waist, where it will be safely hidden under clothing after the surgery. Through this incision, Dr. Saad will remove excess skin and tissue to create a firmer contour. He will also reshape the buttocks to create a higher, more youthful shape to the backside. If necessary, liposuction will also be performed during the surgery to further sculpt the final profile.

During Your Recovery Process

There is some pain, swelling and bruising after a buttock lift, but these symptoms can usually be well-managed with oral medication. You will not be able to apply direct pressure to the area for at least two weeks, which means sleeping on your side or stomach. You will also be given a special cushion that will keep you from placing weight on the buttocks while sitting.

You should feel up to returning to many of your activities within a week or two. Strenuous activity could be restricted for a few weeks to ensure your buttocks have ample time to heal properly. Swelling and bruising will mostly subside within 2-3 weeks. The results of your buttock lift will be long-lasting as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle after surgery.

A buttock lift, whether performed alone or in conjunction with another surgery, can have a profound impact on your entire body contour. To schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Saad, contact his office today.
