Achieve a More Contoured Backside with Butt Lift Surgery
A butt lift is a fully customized cosmetic surgery that can add volume and perkiness to flat or sagging bottoms. This treatment is often recommended for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight or individuals who simply want to enhance the appearance of their backside. Aesthetic refinements can be achieved through a variety of techniques at South Texas Plastic Surgery, such as removing excess tissue, placing implants, and fat grafting. The specific method used will depend on the unique goals of each individual patient. Dr. Brian F. Burns is a trusted, board-certified physician who has been serving the Victoria, TX, area for over 25 years. His practice accepts CareCredit® and provides other flexible financing options to help patients pay for out-of-pocket costs.
Butt lift can address a variety of concerns and provide a proportionate, feminine figure.
Who Is a Candidate for a Butt Lift?
Patients considering a butt lift may have excess sagging skin in the buttocks. This procedure is also suitable for those who have been unable to shape or contour the backside through diet and exercise alone.
Eligible patients should be at a stable weight, as fluctuations can hinder the results of your surgery. As with any cosmetic procedure, candidates should be in good general health and should have realistic expectations of their results. We highly recommend that patients considering butt lift surgery stop smoking, as tobacco products can serious impede the outcome of your procedure.
Addressing Your Unique Concerns
We understand that our patients have unique concerns and goals. Dr. Burns may utilize one or more techniques to achieve the very best results. These methods may include:
- Fat grafting: The least invasive method available, fat grafting involves performing liposuction on another part of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, or love handles. The fat cells will then be isolated and purified in a centrifuge. Finally, the tissue will be strategically injected into the buttocks, providing a more defined, curvy appearance.
- Skin excision: If the primary concern is loose or sagging skin, it can be removed through careful excision techniques. During this process, Dr. Burns will make one or more small incisions, removing unwanted skin and reshaping the remaining tissue for a contoured look.
- Butt implants: Those seeking a more dramatic result can opt for butt implants. Crafted from silicone, implants are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Implants are placed through incisions made along the tops or bottoms of your buttocks.
Butt lift is typically performed under general anesthesia or sedation. In most cases, the procedure can be completed in about two to four hours.
Recovery and Results
Some degree of post-operative discomfort is to be expected following butt lift surgery. However, patients can enjoy a more comfortable recovery by closely following the guidelines provided by Dr. Burns. In most cases, patients will need at least one week of healing time before returning to work or school. During this time, pressure should not be placed on the buttocks. Our team can demonstrate positions that will allow you to rest but will not place excessive pressure on the incision sites. Around week two or three, most normal activities can be resumed. However, a cushion or pillow may be required when sitting to reduce irritation.
Butt lift surgery is often recommended for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight or individuals who simply want to enhance the appearance of their backside.
Most patients will be able to resume normal exercise routines approximately six to eight weeks after the procedure. In the meantime, you will visit our office for checkups. During these appointments, Dr. Burns will monitor your progress. On average, the majority of patients reach a full recovery between two and six months, depending on the extent of their treatment. Once you have healed and swelling has subsided, you can expect a fuller, shapelier, more defined backside that is sure to boost your confidence and self-esteem.
