Men and women ideal candidates are in good physical and mental health and have realistic expectations about what plastic surgery can do for them. The skin tone may be poor with loose or excess skin, stretch marks and cellulite. Although these patients may not be good candidates for liposuction, the buttocks lift works well for patients who have a large amount of loose skin.

There are various buttocks lift methods and procedures that can be performed by Dr. Gardenier and show positive success, based on your specific goals, expectations and desires. Liposuction and lifts can both be used to sculpt the buttocks region into a desired shape.

During the buttocks lift procedure, excess skin is removed and the buttocks are raised to a higher position on the body with tighter skin and texture. Buttocks lift surgery is often performed on patients who have also undergone tummy tuck or liposuction procedures. This helps to remove excess fat from the body, but can sometimes leave behind loose skin that has lost its elasticity.

After the procedure, patients are fitted with a body garment that aids in the healing process and helps the skin to adapt to its new contour. Patients are usually able to return to work about two weeks following surgery, although some swelling may be noticeable for several months. Although Dr. Gardenier makes incisions into the skin to perform the procedure, scars are usually placed so that they are hidden well beneath a swimsuit.

There is an immediate difference in the shape of the buttocks that is both dramatic and noticeable. Any form of surgery carries an amount of uncertainty and risk, and buttocks lift surgery is no exception. Fortunately, when performed by a board-certified general surgeon, the procedure is remarkably safe. Dr. Gardenier will address any concerns you may have during your personalized consultation.
