Buttock Lift

Shapely buttocks make a person look extremely attractive and fit! A lot of people follow a specific exercise routine to achieve full, well-rounded buttocks but seem to see dismal results. In fact, ageing and dramatic weight loss contribute to loose, sagging buttocks and a shabby looking lower body. 

Is there any way through which one can get rid of this excess skin and regain taut, proportionate buttocks? YES! A simple butt lift procedure can change the appearance of the person’s buttocks for the better. 

Vanity Cosmetic Clinic’s Board-certified, renowned Plastic Surgeon Dr Santosh Bhatia explains everything about the Buttock Lift cosmetic surgery through this page.

What Is
buttock lift?

Buttock Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the aesthetic reshaping of the gluteal region. It is a surgery that will improve the appearance of the buttocks and contour them to look visually appealing and proportionate to the rest of the body. 

Buttock lift is completely different from buttock augmentation or Brazilian butt lift. In a buttock augmentation or Brazilian buttock lift the size of the buttocks is enhanced or increased. But in a simple traditional Butt lift only reshaping and removal of excess fat and skin is performed.

What to expect
before the buttock lift surgery?

In case of a buttock lift surgery the pre-surgery prep is not much for the patient. Dr Santosh Bhatia may ask you to undergo a couple of routine blood and urine tests in order to establish basic parameters for the surgery. He may ask you to discontinue a few medicines which might conflict with your recovery process later. And if you are a smoker, you will be asked to quit smoking in the weeks leading up to the surgery. 

But other than that, no special preparation is required from the patient’s side.

What Is the
recovery process for buttock lift surgery?

Step 1

After the surgery, you will have to remain at the clinic for a couple of hours. During these hours your vitals will be monitored and once, Dr Santosh Bhatia has ensured that your vitals are stable and you are fully alert, you will be discharged from the clinic. 

Step 2

Your lower body may have been bandaged and there may be drainage tubes attached to you. These need to be kept in place so as to remove any excess fluid from your body. 

Step 3

You will be prescribed compression garments. The compression garments need to be worn 24/7 till Dr Santosh Bhatia explicitly tells you to stop wearing them. Compression garments play a vital role in your recovery, since they help in the settlement of the buttocks. The swelling also subsides faster due to the compression garments. 

Step 4

Dr Santosh Bhatia may prescribe medication to manage the pain and you will be given details of your follow-up visits. As a patient you must ensure that you follow all the instructions given to you and take your medication on time.

Step 5

You will be advised not to sleep on your back. Sleeping face down or on your side is preferred. Prolonged sitting is also not advisable for a minimum of two weeks and maximum based on Dr Santosh Bhatia’s guideline, which may be different for every patient. 

Step 6

Typically patients can resume exercise six to eight weeks after the surgery. 

Step 7

Any other questions or doubts about the recovery can be raised during your consultation with Dr Santosh Bhatia, the Board-certified Plastic Surgeon of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai.
