Gluteal Lift

Gluteoplasty, or a gluteal lift, is a surgical procedure available for those who are concerned with the size and shape of their buttocks.

Process: This procedure combines liposuction of the posterior thigh with removal of excess tissue around the lower part of the buttocks. The remaining skin and tissue are reconstructed to achieve a tightening and smoothing effect.

Recovery: Generally, the patient should be able to sit comfortably by the end of the first week. Walking and other activities can be resumed gradually during the second week, and most people return to work after two weeks. Participation in strenuous sporting activities is not recommended for two months.

Results: Follow surgery, patients report a more appealing appearance and are able to fit into their clothes more comfortably.
