Buttock lifts often involve a combination of surgical procedures, depending on the desired result. The surgeon will cut across the top of the buttock and, depending on the extent of the operation, sometimes along the sides as well. Crescent shaped sections of skin and fat are removed and the skin is pulled together and sewn.

 

Buttock lifts can also be performed using 'suture' or ' thread lift' techniques. This involves the placement of sutures or threads with tiny 'teeth' into the brow through a small insertion. The threads are pulled upwards and secured, and the insertion is stitched shut.


Results: The buttocks should appear higher and firmer. Buttock lifts are sometimes permanent, but the effects may be reversed as you get older or if you put on weight.


Risks: The surgery leaves permanent scars and can leave you with asymmetrical buttocks. As with any surgery, there are risks to consider.  Although the majority of patients do not experience complications, you should understand all the possible consequences of buttock lift surgery.

  

You will be given specific instructions that may include: How to care for the surgical site and drains, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.
