It is often the case that buttocks in many people begin to sag, mainly due to aging, sudden weight loss or after pregnancy.
This makes the lower body look very unattractive and can even create health issues. When that happens, it calls for taking corrective measures.
Luckily, there are many corrective procedures available for droopy and sagging butts, Buttock lift in Dubai being the most popular one amongst them. Wondering what’s that? Let’s find out!
What is a Buttock Lift?
A buttock lift is a cosmetic surgery that is aimed at improving the appearance of the buttocks. It is typically done in conjunction with lipectomy, or lower body lift, however, it can be performed as a single procedure as well.
During a buttock lift, excess fat is removed from the buttocks. Sagging tissues are lifted and removed and a flat rear end becomes rounder. The skin over the buttocks is then raised and tightened, making the butt appear less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled.
It is important to note, however, that a buttock lift is only meant for improving the quality and tightness of the butt, and not to add any additional volume. Some people may have an amazing skin but are interested in adding volume to their butts. Such people can benefit from Brazilian Butt lift that increases the size of the butt by adding volume to it.
Why Get a Buttock Lift?
You may want to get a buttock lift if your buttocks appear saggy due to weight loss, aging or genetics. The following pointers may indicate you’ll be a good candidate for a butt lift.
- If you have loose or sagging skin and extra fat in your buttocks
- If your gluteal area makes you feel self-conscious
- If you recently experienced dramatic weight loss and are close to your ideal weight
- If the excess fat makes you uncomfortable or cause problems in mobility
How is it Done?
A buttock lift surgery lasts anywhere between one and two hours, depending on the nature of the surgery.
Typically, a surgeon first marks the area from where fat and skin needs to be removed. Incisions are then made on these cites to eliminate excess fat and skin using a scalpel. The underlying tissues are stitched using dissolvable threads and the incisions are then shut close. The dressing is then applied to let the wounds heal.
Your surgeon will give you special instructions on how to take care of yourself after the surgery. Usually, you’ll be advised to take rest for at least two weeks after the surgery and avoid shower till the stitches are removed. You’ll only be able to return to sporting activities after six weeks from the surgery.
Risks & Complications
No cosmetic surgery is 100 percent safe. There’s always a tiny risk of things going bad, but this happens rarely. If you put yourself in the hands of an expert surgeon, the chances of any complications are very low.
You may experience some side effects immediately after your buttock lift surgery. These include bleeding, sensory disturbance, infection, a wound that refuses to heal and an allergic reaction. Most of these, however, are temporary complications and can be dealt with medicines and antibiotics.
