7 things you need to know about buttock and outer-thigh lifts

Aging, significant weight loss, and even genetics can cause the buttocks and thighs to sag. Often a healthy diet and exercise program can’t tighten, firm and contour this area as well as lift procedures. Here are seven things you should know about buttock and outer-thigh lifts.

Ideal candidates are in good health. You should also avoid smoking and have realistic expectations about outcomes from the procedure.

A buttock lift and outer-thigh lift are often performed together. Although the procedures can be done separately, patients often find the buttocks and thighs have the same issues.

The incisions are made in places that scars can be easily hidden. The buttock lift incision is made across the top of the buttocks from one hip bone to the other, low enough to be concealed by underwear or a bikini. For the outer-thigh lift, the incision is made in the groin area. Though they will be visible, the scars will fade over time.

Liposuction may be performed. During the procedures, excess skin and fat are removed. Support sutures are placed deep within the underlying tissue, while skin is then redraped around the new contours. Incisions are closed with sutures. Patients are usually required to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and speed up the healing process.

The lift procedures are typically performed on an outpatient basis. The lift is done under general anesthesia. Most patients can leave after the effects of the anesthesia have worn off, while some patients may have to stay overnight.

Swelling, soreness and bruising can last for up to a month. This is typical for recovery, but pain can be controlled with medication. Most people can return to work and regular, non-strenuous activities after about two weeks, but must avoid strenuous activities for four weeks or longer.

They are not weight-loss procedures. This is performed only on those who are not significantly overweight. After the procedures, the buttocks and outer thighs have trimmer contours, and the skin is tighter and smoother. Surgical results are long-lasting.

How to Stay Comfortable After a Butt Lift

Butt Lift | Chester NJ

With spring break just around the corner, you may get nervous just thinking about having to squeeze into a bikini or swimsuit  in front of people. Rather than spending your beach vacation hiding under a big blanket, show off your hard-earned body this year after you get a butt lift from Dr. Larry Weinstein. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Weinstein will tighten, firm, and contour the buttocks giving you something to strut about while you’re walking on the beach. To make sure that your recovery goes as well as possible, let’s take a closer look at some ways that you can stay more comfortable while you rest and recover. 

Wear Compression Underwear

No, they may not be the sexiest things on the planet, but compression underwear will help speed up your recovery and make you feel better as well. Compression underwear is designed to hug your buttocks which helps to keep your incisions in place and ease swelling as well; both of which will help you stay more comfortable. 

Sleep On Your Side

The number one way for you to stay comfortable while you’re recovering from a butt lift is to sleep on your side. If you are a back sleeper, this may be harder for you to do but by taking the pressure off of your buttocks, you won’t feel in as much pain or discomfort. For additional support, you can always place a pillow in between your legs as you sleep as well; this will help align your back. 

Take It Easy

On average, you can return back to your normal activities after about two weeks. Until that two week period, though, make sure that you really take it easy. The more you push yourself physically, the more likely you are to get hurt or get an infection. Use this time to catch up on TV shows, movies, or read a few good books. 

To make sure that you recover as comfortably as possible, use the tips listed in this article. To learn more about a butt lift, contact us at our Chester office today and call us at 908-879-2222.
