A person’s attractive body is determined by the shape and proportion of their buttocks. To achieve a shapely figure, people try many exercises and exercise routines. If you have tried many exercises and failed to reach your goals, then the buttlift is an option.
The butt lift is a technique for transferring fat that enhances the appearance of the buttocks.
Gluteoplasty, or buttlift, is a cosmetic surgery that improves the shape and size of the buttocks. Sometimes a buttocklift is performed as part of a lower body or tummy tuck. A buttlift alone will not increase the volume of the buttocks. It is often combined with an augmentation procedure to change the shape or size of the buttocks.
These are the candidates who can undergo a buttocklift:
- People who have experienced significant weight loss, and have maintained a steady weight for six to twelve months
- People who are overweight and have not lost more weight through diet changes or physical exercise.
- Normal-weight people whose skin doesn’t contract after liposuction because of reduced elasticity
- People who desire to see a dramatic improvement in their lower body appearance
PREPARATION BEFORE PROCEDURE
The doctor will first review the medical, medication, and social histories of the patient. To examine the lower body, buttocks, skin and lower back, a physical exam is performed. The doctor will take pictures of your buttocks and keep them in your medical records. Before you undergo the procedure, you will need to have certain tests done to determine your overall health.
Before you lift your buttocks, it is important to follow the following steps:
- Discuss with your doctor any current medications or vitamins and minerals supplements.
- If you have an allergy to any drug or substance, notify your doctor immediately.
- Avoid alcohol consumption
- Stop smoking
- Avoid taking aspirin and other painkillers as they may increase bleeding risk during the procedure.
A buttock lift can be done outpatiently. Ask someone to take you home following the procedure.
General anaesthesia is used to perform the butt lift. After the anaesthesia has set in, an incision will be made at the lower back, just below the waist. The excess skin is then pulled up and repositioned on your buttocks. The tissues are then removed from excess skin and fat. The sutures are used to close the wound. The incision can be further supported by surgical tape or a dressing bandage.
For a few days, moderate pain and swelling may be common. These can be managed with the prescribed medications. To prevent blood clots, you will need to slow down your gait from the day following surgery. You will be required to wear a support garment for fluid accumulation.
These tips will help you get back to normal faster.
- Avoid positions that can strain your incisions
- To assess the results, follow-up is recommended.
- Use the prescribed medications
- Avoid strenuous activities
- Stable body weight
- If you notice any unusual symptoms, consult your doctor immediately
