Every patient has their own individual needs for plastic
surgery. Reshaping the buttock to the region of oneís body can
be performed by a procedure called the buttock lift. Depending
on the patient, sometimes liposuction and implants are also used
to compliment the procedure and produce a more desirable shape.
Patients who have a large amount of loose skin on their buttock
region are perfect candidates for a buttock lift. The operation
will remove the extra skin and lift the buttock which results in
an optimal position with tighter skin and a better texture.
Although incisions are made during the procedure scars can be
placed so that they are hidden beneath a swimsuit.
Occasionally buttock lifts are performed on patients who have
also undergone tummy tuck or liposuction procedures. This
procedure helps remove excess fat from the body but will
sometimes leave behind loose skin that has lost its elasticity.
On the other hand, some patients desire a fuller buttock shape
which requires the use of implants. These implants are made of a
material that canít rupture, deflate or spill. This procedure is
referred to as buttock augmentation.
Buttock lifts have gained popularity in the United States as of
late. There has been a 152% increase in these procedures between
2002 and 2004. In 2004 there were approximately 4000 buttock
lift procedures performed.
