Buttock Lift The Woodlands
Gluteoplasty may refer to any procedure that reshapes the buttocks for a smoother or shapelier appearance. There are different ways to achieve these goals such as buttock implants, fat grafting or skin tightening.
Through buttock lift or augmentation, Houston plastic surgeon Paul Gill M.D. can give you a more shapely appearance or an improved silhouette.
If You’re Considering Buttock Surgery
Patients in Houston visit Dr. Gill for different cosmetic concerns about this area: some have experienced weight loss and now have uneven contour on their buttocks, while others want a cosmetic enhancement. Possible reasons for seeking gluteoplasty include:
- Sagging (ptosis) of the buttocks
- Underdevelopment of the buttocks
- Gluteal asymmetry or deformity
The best candidates for any buttock surgery will be healthy, non-smokers who have realistic expectations and a thorough understanding of the risks and benefits involved.
What to Expect in Buttock Lift or Augmentation
After weight loss, contouring of the buttocks can be performed to correct sagging skin and tissue. The doctor makes an incision across the lower back, where hanging skin is lifted, trimmed and then sutured. Liposuction can be performed in adjacent areas for complete gluteal contouring.
For cosmetic enhancement, implants or fat injections can significantly increase buttock projection. Implants are placed through an incision in the lower buttock crease. An alternative to this procedure, which is gaining popularity in Houston, is the Brazilian Butt Lift technique. A series of injections with your own body fat can augment the buttocks for a natural enhancement.
Ask Dr. Gill for more information about each procedure and he can help you determine the right procedure for meeting your needs and goals.
Recovering from Gluteoplasty
After a buttock lift or augmentation, you may need to postpone physical activity for about 3 weeks. Dr. Gill will provide specific aftercare instructions, and may require followup visits to monitor your healing and results. It may take several weeks or months before you can evaluate the final result of your buttock surgery.
