Young buttocks are firm, but in the course of years they can start to sag because of gravity and diminishing elasticity of the skin.
Sagging buttocks is generally an aesthetic problem of the white race. The result is a “square” backside due to sagging in the lower section and the lack of firmness in the upper section of the buttocks. This is in principle equal to the problem of sagging breasts. Pregnancies and loss of weight can also have an influence to the form of the buttocks. In this way excess skin develops in the buttocks and the adjoining bones.
BUTTOCK LIFT: THE CHANGE
When the size of the buttocks is sufficient but there is excess skin prevalent, a buttock lift can be performed. This will result in a scar in the buttock fold.
The buttock lift is performed under full anaesthetics and takes approximately 2 hours.
The wounds in the body are attached in layers with dissolvable thread. To attach the skin the plastic surgeon uses non-dissolvable thread.
I travelled with my husband on the Eurostar from London, this was £60 each return, we got the train from Brussels Central to Vilvoorde which was 3 stops then walked to the hotel which was next to the station, we walked to the clinic in the morning which took about 20 mins (taxi would have been 10euro). I didn't want to spend another night in the hotel as we were trying to keep costs down and another night would have been £130 so I returned to London the same night. Sitting didn't hurt much but was very uncomfortable; getting down/up was painful and walking also hurt. So it would have been better to stay 1 night in a hotel after the surgery.
I LOVE my new body!!
BUTTOCK LIFT: POST OPERATIVE CARE
After a buttock lift you are able to go home the very same day. The buttocks will be swollen and bleeding may occur. During the first weeks after the buttock lift it is recommended to wear supportive underpants (elasto-bandage).
