How It's Done:
Anesthesia Is Administered
You will be given medications for your comfort during the surgical procedure. Typically, general anesthesia is given so you will be sleeping and painless during the procedure.
A butt lift is often performed using a combination of local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Your surgeon will suggest the ideal choice for you.
How Incisions Are Made
While the surgeon during the butt lift surgery will usually excise an elliptical incision of the skin on the upper area of the buttocks (within the bikini line), incision styles can vary according to factors such as the amount and location of excess skin and fat.
You and your surgeon will figure out ahead of time which incision technique is beneficial and best for you.
Excess Skin Is Removed and Remaining Skin is Repositioned
After your surgeon creates the incisions, the excess skin is surgically removed and the remaining skin is then pulled to its new position.
Incisions Are Closed
Incisions are then sutured and are commonly given extra support with surgical tape and skin adhesive (tissue glue).
Dressings or bandages are placed on the incisions, and there will be small tubes temporarily positioned under the skin to help drain any excess blood or fluid, which may cause unnecessary swelling.
Post-Op Care and Instructions
After surgery, you will be taken to a recovery area where you will be monitored by our surgical staff.
Once you are awake, you will be transferred to your room. It is best that you have someone stay with you in the room for the first 24 hours.
Butt lift surgery is frequently done in combination with other procedures to improve the patient’s results.
