A butt lift procedure is a cosmetic surgery in which the surgeon removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the buttocks so that the butt looks flatter and more toned. It is a procedure that is sometimes necessary if a person has lost a lot of weight or has a sagging butt due to genetics, age and the effects of gravity. The butt looks sleeker and smoother and blends well into the thigh. Both the thigh and the butt can benefit from this sort of procedure. It is done in both men and women but at a slightly higher rate in women. The typical cost of a butt lift is $4600, depending on where on the continent you live. It is more expensive on both coasts than it is in the Midwest or Southern USA.
A butt lift procedure takes between 2-4 hours to perform. The time can vary, however, from person to person. Doctors usually do this as an outpatient procedure, although general anesthesia is usually used for the surgery. Some people can have a butt lift under spinal or local anesthesia with sedation.
The procedure is usually done by making a curved incision in the natural crease between the buttocks and the thighs. Excess fat is removed from the lower part of the butt and muscles are tightened if necessary. Then the excess skin is trimmed away and sutures are placed in the new suture line. The end result looks as though the butt is lifted and toned. Butt lifts can last for up to ten years or more before you have to have it repeated. Some butt lifts last longer than ten years. It is usually the result of further aging that necessitates the need for another butt lift.
Butt lifts can have surgical complications. Some of these complications include infection in the surgical site, which can be treated with antibiotics and local heat, bleeding and hematoma formation, which can also be treated with local heat, and an outcome that is unsatisfactory. Permanent scars can form in the surgical area, making it difficult to wear bathing suits without obvious scars showing. The area can become too tight, making your movements restricted. You might not be able to sit down without difficulty with tightness in the buttock area. There can be temporary swelling of the affected area which will also affect mobility over the short term.
After surgery, you will wear a compression garment home that will aid in healing and help the skin tighten. You will be asked not to sit down for several days but to lay as much as possible on your stomach or side. Lying on your back may be comfortable after a few days. Sitting might be something you don’t do for at least two weeks. You need to talk to your doctor before you sit down so you don’t tear your stitches. The stitches can be staples, external sutures that are removed after two weeks or internally placed absorbable sutures. You should feel completely like yourself again (only better) after a month’s time. You should refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least 6 weeks and expect to recover completely within 4 to 6 months.
