The main method for tightening the skin of the gluteal region by lifting and removing excess fat is called gluteoplasty or butt lift; there are different techniques:
The implants are placed under each major buttock by inserting the prostheses through an incision of 5 to 8 cm over the tailbone. This is the most effective method for men and women whose bodies have few reserves of excess fat adipose in the lower trunk, buttocks and thighs, anatomical regions where the human body usually stores excess body fat. The procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia and lasts about two hours.
Another name given to this type of surgery is the elevation of Brazilian buttocks. It involves removing fat from patients' abdomens, flanks or thighs. Fat is injected (lipoinjection) into the gluteal region making a small incision. Using the patient's own body fat reduces the possibility of tissue rejection. The procedure is also less invasive than implant surgery. In most cases, depending on health, the patient can resume their daily activities within two days of surgery and may resume physical activities within two weeks of the procedure.
The most common way to perform remodeling gluteoplasty in men and women is through an incision made in the lower back or upper buttocks to remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin. This technique allows the removal of excess skin and fat below this level, while lifting the fallen tissues in the buttocks and on the outer top of the thigh. Remodeling intervention is suitable for patients who have suffered massive weight loss or have undergone bariatric surgery.
