Buttock Lift Surgery

Buttock Lift Surgery

One of the most important elements that make the female body attractive and beautiful is its curves. What makes the curves ideal is that the indented and projecting regions follow each other in a harmonious manner.

Buttock lift surgery aims at an ideal feminine buttock image, in which the hip is not too prominent, the upper, outer section slightly protrudes outward, joins with a thin waist and back curvature.

What is Buttock Lift Surgery?

It is an operation performed in order to reach a buttock image in which the buttocks reach an ideally proportioned appearance in conformance with the body.

It may not be enough to touch the buttocks just to get an ideal buttock appearance. Buttock, waist, waist-buttock crossing, hips, legs and even abdominal region should be evaluated individually and then as a whole. To achieve the ideal ratio, the required touches should be made separately.

Operation Methods

Fat injection

Buttock shaping method using fat injection to the hip is a commonly used aesthetic procedure. It's particularly preferred because the operation time is short, the operation and the process afterwards are not tiresome and the results are very striking.

Vaser liposuction method is employed to thin down and shape the waist, back and hips in order to make a more aesthetic passage to the hip region. Thus, the hip acquires a rounder and narrower appearance.

Vaser Liposuction enables fats with stem cells removed without any damage to be injected into the buttocks, and during the same session and in a more permanent manner, the buttocks acquire a protruding appearance.

During the operation, the patient may suffer from mild pain, which can be resolved with painkiller tablets. Mostly, overnight hospital stay is recommended. Those who had both fat injection to the buttocks and vaser liposuction should wear a special corset for 3 weeks. Patients can resume normal activity in 3-5 days.

Buttock implants

Buttock implants can also be used to lift the buttocks and enhance their volume. After the operation, there will be a scar measuring about 6-8 centimeters, which will be hidden between the curve in the middle of the hip.

The recovery period is a bit more painful and longer than fat injection operation. If the area around the implants placed in the buttocks is shaped by fat removal using vaser liposuction, more natural and effective results can be achieved.

Buttock Lift

It is necessary to perform a buttock lift and stretching operation on buttocks that have sagged due to rapid and excessive weight gain and loss or aging. If necessary, excess skin is removed and filling is applied.

The operation is performed under general anesthesia. Overnight hospital stay is required. Sutures are removed at week 2. The patient can resume normal activity 15 days after surgery.

Strenuous sports should be avoided for 45 days. The patient may start to do mild sports such as walking, cardio after 30 days. Scars remaining after buttock lift- stretching surgery may fade over time and become unnoticeable.
