A buttock lift is a very popular procedure that is ideal for those who want to improve the contouring of the buttock and upper thigh area, which may have become saggy due to excess skin caused by weight loss, aging or genetics. A buttock lift can result in an overall better-contoured lower body, and the procedure may be carried out in combination with liposuction.
A buttock lift can involve a number of different techniques, and the procedures used will depend heavily on the patient’s individual needs. Dr. Georgopoulos may also recommend autologous buttock augmentation, which can help to provide a better overall appearance for the buttocks and lower body.
A buttock lift will lead to better body shape and tighter skin, which can help you be more satisfied with your personal appearance.
At the Geoplasty Center, Dr. Georgopoulos is highly experienced in the body contouring field, including buttock lifting procedures. Through close consultation, he will assess your needs and expectations, outlining the process that will deliver a result you can be happy with.
The buttock lift procedure very much depends on each patient’s particular situation. In general, the procedure is performed under general anesthetic and will involve making a number of incisions that allows Dr. Georgopoulos to assess the underlying tissue. He can then reshape and tighten the tissue, while excess skin can be removed to provide a more natural appearance.
In cases where the patient has excess fat deposit, liposuction may be used in combination with the buttock lift procedure.
With the autologous buttock augmentation, the buttock tissue is lifted into a better position and some of the patient’s own tissue is used to add the right contour. As this method uses the patient’s own tissue, the body accepts the tissue naturally and the finished look can be very natural.
During all procedures, Dr. Georgopoulos makes every effort to place incisions in strategic locations where scarring will be hidden by the natural folds of the body or by standard types of clothing.
After the Buttock Lift
The smoother skin and tighter contouring that a buttock lift can give you will be visible immediately after the procedure, although it will take some weeks before the final result is fully achieved. There will be some swelling and bruising initially, although this will lessen in the days after. There may be some pain and Dr. Georgopoulos will prescribe medication to deal with this if necessary.
A buttock light can be performed as an out-patient procedure, but an overnight stay in hospital is a possibility. You should have someone who can take you home when you are ready to leave.
Staff at the Geoplasty Center may ask you to wear a compression garment for some time after the procedure to reduce swelling and support the buttock area after surgery. The staff will give you a detailed after-care program that you should follow closely.
As with all procedures, there is a slight risk of negative side effects such as infection after surgery, and you should closely follow the staff’s advice on how to avoid this. There will be swelling and bruising initially, and you should expect some scarring at the incision areas.
