For most of us, gravity and age takes a toll on our body and causes sagging skin. This sagging is especially prevalent in the buttocks area. Luckily, a solution exists in the form of a procedure known as a buttock lift (butt lift).
To perform a butt lift, an incision is made at the bikini line, just above the buttock. Excess fat and skin are removed, and the buttock is elevated. For the entire duration of the surgery, the patient is under general anesthesia.
If you have poor skin elasticity, often characterized by stretch marks and drooping skin, you may be the ideal candidate for a butt lift. Ideal candidates are non-smokers who do not exhibit any serious health conditions. In your consultation, you can discuss risks, recovery, expectations and possible alternatives.
Traditonal Butt Lift vs Brazilian Butt Lift
The traditonal butt lift is great for patients simply looking to elevate sagging skin in the buttocks area. However, if you would like to lift the buttocks and augment the size of the buttocks, a brazilian butt lift is more ideal.
In addition to providing a lift, a brazilian butt lift provides more volume through fat injections. The fat used in the injections are harvested through the liposuction of donor areas on your own body (i.e. inner thighs, love handles).
