Buttock Lift Surgery
If you want to look great for the beach or in that new pair of jeans, your body needs to look its best. That means eating healthy and exercising regularly. Still, all the exercise and all that attention to calories and fat doesnt guarantee youll look perfect. This is especially true if youve lost a lot of weight and the rest of your body hasnt caught up to your slimmer, fitter frame. Its because of this that people visit our Austin and San Antonio plastic surgery centers to find out what options are available to them.
What is buttock lift surgery?
One important option to consider is buttock lift surgery. The buttock lift will be able to tighten that rear end and leave you looking toned and firm. With a buttock lift surgery, you can have the firm tush you have always wanted. And when you meet with Dr. Constance Barone, a skilled plastic surgeon serving San Antonio and Austin, you can rest assured that you are in the care of a true artist and consummate medical professional.
Who is a good candidate for buttock lift surgery?
The best candidates for buttock lift surgery are patients who have lost a good amount of weight and notice that their rear end droops or sags as a result of loose skin or excess tissue and fat. These patients should be in generally good health and have no medical conditions that would prevent them from undergoing surgery. In addition, its important that these patients have realistic expectations about what their surgery will accomplish.
In many cases, the buttock lift is performed as part of a body contouring treatment after massive weight loss or a mommy makeover. Both of these surgeries seek to improve body contour after the loss of considerable amount of weight.
The Buttock Lift Procedure
During a buttock lift, and incision will be made along the lower back above the buttocks. Through this incision, excess skin will be removed and remaining skin will be pulled tight to improve the firmness and contour of the rear end. In cases where excess fat pockets can be removed to improve appearance, San Antonio liposuction may be used. Generally the procedure takes not more than two to four hours.
Recovery from surgery will vary from patient to patient, but it should take roughly two weeks or three weeks. Patients will be encouraged to avoid strenuous physical activities and any actions that put strain on the lower back and buttocks until Dr. Barone says its okay.
Variations on the Buttock Lift
In addition to the traditional buttock lift, there are also two variations that are worth noting. The first is the buttock augmentation surgery, in which buttock implants are placed to improve the shape and appearance of the buttocks. The other is the so-called Brazilian butt lift, which used fat transfer injections from other parts of the body to enhance the shape of the buttocks.
