What is Butt Lift Surgery?
It is a procedure used to get rid of excess skin in order to get a tighter and more youthful look by getting rid of the stretch marks, saggy and unwanted excess skin.
Are You A Candidate for Butt Lift?
Dr. Tamim will evaluate you in the beginning to determine your eligibility and come up with a treatment plan that fits your needs. It is typically for someone who had massive weight loss that is not responding to healthy life style and exercising, or those who have loose skin due to aging.
The procedure is done under general anesthesia in one of our operating rooms. An incision is done under the buttock folds, and the excess skin is excised after doing some liposuction to remove any unwanted fat as well. Then, a drain is typically placed in the buttock for about a week. Closure is done with resorbable sutures.
What to expect
You are expected to have some swelling, bruising, and soreness after the procedure. And you will have to wear a compression garment to minimize the post-operative swelling and expedite the healing process for at least the first few weeks. A detailed post-operative care instruction will be given after surgery to ensure optimal healing. In general, you will see 80% of your final results within the first 6-8 weeks.
