With age or significant weight loss, our buttocks gradually change shape by drooping and sagging. In the past, nothing could be done to correct this unfortunate circumstance. However, cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Cuzalina is able to improve the buttock contour with a buttock lift. This surgery can help you regain confidence and a more youthful appearance.
The best candidates for buttock lift surgery in Tulsa, OK have poor skin tone in the buttock area. This is characterized by loose or excess skin, stretch marks and cellulite. Patients who suffer from poor skin quality cannot benefit from liposuction and can only improve the appearance of their buttocks through buttock lift surgery. Ideal candidates are also in good physical and mental health and have realistic expectations about what cosmetic surgery can do for them.
It is important to be honest about your expectations and goals when meeting with us at your consultation. We will review your health history and examine the buttocks to determine if this procedure is right for you. If you are a smoker, you will need to quit for a minimum of 4-6 weeks before surgery to minimize the risk of complications. Smokers are much more prone to delayed healing and wound breakdown.
The incision is made just above the buttock, in the bikini line. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the buttock is elevated superiorly. In some cases, this procedure is combined with a body lift or thigh lift.
The buttock lift, as with all surgery at Tulsa Surgical Arts, is performed in our AAAHC outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia.
