Dr. Lohner sees patients from Bryn Mawr, Main Line, Rosemont, Philadelphia, and other cities throughout Pennsylvania for buttock lift surgery.
A buttock lift, or buttock augmentation, involves reshaping the contour of the patient’s buttocks by injections, surgery, or insertion of an implant.
One of the most popular lift procedures starts with liposuction of the patient’s own fat cells from the buttocks, abdomen, or other area. After cleaning and processing, the fat is reinjected into the buttocks in various locations and depths, depending on the shape desired. This procedure is commonly referred to as the “butt lift.”
Buttock lift surgery is a procedure in which a plastic surgeon makes an incision above the buttocks and then pulls the skin from the buttocks and outer thighs up, removing excess skin. This results in a firmer, tauter appearance in the skin of the entire buttocks region. Sometimes this procedure is performed as part of a total body lift.
Another method of buttock lift requires placement of an elastomer (e.g., silicone) implant in the upper part of the buttocks. In contrast to the butt lift, implants only affect the shape of the upper and outer buttocks, as they cannot be placed in the lower buttock area.
Recovery from buttock lift procedure generally requires not sitting directly on the buttocks for two to three weeks.
