Buttocks Lift: Used mostly after Gastric Bypass, Lap Band or massive weight loss. This assumes that there is enough fat but too much skin.
The skin is lifted-MUCH LIKE A ‘reverse Tummy Tuck.” Imagine a line across the top of the buttocks dipping slightly inside the gluteal crease to form a seagull shape. This allows the skin to be lifted over fat much like a breast lift. May need to be combined with an implant for projection.
No sitting for 2 weeks: Standing or lying down only. No driving for 2 weeks. There are usually drain tubes that drain each buttock, and those will be removed at 2 weeks post-op. Liposuction areas on the back +/- front are bruised for 5d-2 weeks. A garment is worn for 6-8 weeks AT ALL TIMES except to wash. Follow-up is weekly until the drains are out, then 6 weeks, 13 weeks, 6 months and 1 year. The buttocks will lose 10-20% (approx.) over 2-3 months.
Pros: No foreign body. Infection risk lower. Little shifting
Cons: May have a long scar. Not as projecting as implant. Cannot choose size. May not work for everyone.
