What is a buttocks lift?
A buttocks lift, or gluteoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can lift and tighten your buttocks and can remove excess skin. There are many different methods that can be used to perform a buttocks lift. Your Plastic Surgeon will determine which method is best for you based on your unique needs and aesthetic goals.
Is a buttocks lift right for me?
The best way to determine the answer to this question is to meet with one of our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons for a consultation.
What should I expect during my consultation?
At CAPS, the satisfaction of our patients is our priority. That’s why we place a great deal of importance on your consultation. The goal of the consultation is to determine if a buttocks lift is the right choice for you. During your consultation, your doctor will explain the full procedure to you and will ask you several questions including:
- Why do you want a buttocks lift?
- What are your expectations for the procedure?
- What is your desired outcome?
- Do you have any drug allergies?
- What previous medical treatments have you received?
- Have you had any previous surgeries? If so, what were they?
In addition to asking these questions, your Plastic Surgeon will use your consultation to evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors you may have, discuss your buttocks lift options, recommend a course of treatment, discuss likely outcomes of a buttocks lift and any risks or potential complications, and answer your questions.
What should I expect before my buttocks lift?
Before your buttocks lift, you may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust your current medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that may increase bleeding.
We will also give you special instructions about what to do the night before and morning of your surgery and regarding your post-operative care and follow-up appointments.
What will happen during my buttocks lift?
First, you’ll be administered anesthesia. Your Plastic Surgeon will recommend the anesthesia option that is best for you. Then, your Plastic Surgeon and skilled, well-trained staff will perform the procedure. The exact procedure will vary depending on your unique needs. Your doctor can walk you through every step of the procedure when you meet for your consultation.
What should I expect after my buttocks lift?
Your doctor will give you instructions regarding your post-operative care. Following these instructions is absolutely vital for the success of your surgery. These instructions will include ensuring that your surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, abrasion, or motion during your recovery. Your doctor will also instruct you regarding the proper care of the surgical site, the use of medications to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, and your overall follow-up care.
What will my results be like?
The results of your buttocks lift will be long-lasting and you should see a tighter, better proportioned buttocks almost immediately. By trusting the skilled, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons at CAPS to perform your buttocks lift, you can be confident that you are in good hands.
