Arms, Thigh, and Buttock Lifts

Buttock Lift (Gluteal Lift)

During the procedure, the surgeon makes cuts underneath the buttock area, where the surgical scar won't be noticeable. Then, the plastic surgeon removes excess skin and fat. To improve the buttocks' overall look, the surgeon may also do liposuction. All this is typically done as an outpatient procedure, meaning no overnight stay.

After surgery, the main obstacle to healing and recovery is not being able to sit. But gradually, as the surgical cuts heal, you can get back to normal activity, including sitting down.
