The buttocks consist of the largest muscle in the body, the gluteus maximus. In youth the buttocks should be firm and well rounded, but many factors can alter their appearance. For some, genetics plays a role and the skin of the buttocks appear flabby and sagged. For others, diet and lifestyle affect the shape and size of their buttocks and dramatic weight gain and loss can cause the skin of the buttocks to appear saggy and lumpy.
If you are unhappy with the shape and general appearance of your buttocks, if you are displeased with the appearance of the skin texture and tone, then you may be a candidate for a buttocks lift. Excessive weight gain and loss can leave the buttocks with excess saggy skin. Yet other people have a sagged and dimpled appearance due to the effects of age and gravity.
A buttocks lift is an elective surgery to improve the appearance and tautness of the skin covering the buttocks. The patient is placed under general anaesthetic so that they will be asleep during the procedure. The plastic surgeon will make a lateral incision at the top of the buttocks, in the groin and on the hips to lift the inner thighs. Any excess fat is trimmed away and the skin is pulled taught, trimmed and then the incisions are sutured closed. The patient is then fitted with a compression garment to aid in the reduction of post-operative swelling and to aid in the tightening of the skin.
It will take several weeks for the bruising and swelling to subside and patients should wait at least six weeks before engaging in any strenuous activity. It may be a few months before the patient will be able to sit comfortably without pain and the healing process should be complete within three to six months after surgery.
Any surgery will leave a varying amount of scarring. This will depend on the placement of the scars, their size and after wound care. Your skin type, skin tone, age and genetics will also affect the healing process and scar formation. Scars should fade over time to be nearly invisible white lines.
There are some risks associated with buttocks surgery and these include bleeding, infection, bruising, scarring, an asymmetrical appearance, numbness and skin irregularities. There may also be localized pain, swelling, tissue death, blood clots and slow wound healing.
The effects of the surgery should be permanent, unless the patient gains or loses a significant amount of weight. The eventual effects of age and gravity will have some effect upon the appearance of the buttocks over time as the surgery cannot halt the ageing process.
