Buttock lift can reshape sagging buttocks, enhance the volume of the area or remove and reposition local fat in order to give a more natural and rounded contour.
It is the perfect procedure for you having difficulties reshaping your buttocks through exercise or in cases after significant weight loss with subsequent sagging of the skin.
Skin incisions are camouflaged in the underwear pattern or on the natural gluteal folds of the skin. Concurrent use of the liposuction technique helps reduce the need for long skin incisions.
In cases where volume and projection of the buttocks are inadequate, Dr. Stavrou may use a number of different techniques (liposculpture, hyaluronic acid injections etc.) to augment and reshape your derriere.
The procedure is done under general anesthesia and an overnight stay might be necessary, especially when combined with other procedures.
Recovery depends on the extent of the procedure. Light activities may commence from the 1st post-op day. More normal activity may take 2-3 weeks. The use of compression garments is recommended after your surgery since it helps reduce fluid retention and accelerate recovery.
Results can be long-term although changes in body weight and/or pregnancy can alter your appearance.
