What is Buttock Lifting ?
Buttock lifting is used for sagging buttocks. Management of the problem depends on the buttocks initial volume:
if the buttocks have initially low volume, buttocks augmentation will be the solution.
- if the volume is already large, then surgical lifting is mandatory. This entails a horizontal incision over the superior aspect of the buttocks, through which the whole buttock is pulled up and excess skin excised.
The operation is done under general anesthesia and takes around 3 hours. The patient leaves the hospital the following day and can resume normal activity in 1 week.
