Hours in the gym doing squats, lunges, and other exercises cannot guarantee a shapely, rounded buttocks. Various factors, including substantial weight loss, age, and genetics can all play a role in how your body responds to physical activity and diet. If you have tried and failed to achieve a tighter, firmer, and more desirable buttocks on your own, butt lift surgery may the solution. Traveling to Monterrey or Tijuana, Mexico, can allow patients to undergo this life-changing surgery for far less than the cost of treatment in the U.S. Tijuana Bariatrics coordinates every aspect of your care, and also offers flexible financing.
What to Expect During a Consultation
During a consultation, your doctor will discuss your concerns and goals, and learn more about what you hope to achieve with a butt lift procedure. We will educate you on the various steps of the surgery, and then thoroughly explain what you can expect during the recovery phase. We will help you develop realistic goals of your treatment outcome, and provide you with all of the information you need to make the decision that is right for you.
The Traditional Butt Lift Procedure
During traditional butt lift surgery, the surgeon will focus on removing excess skin and fat from various regions of the buttocks. The skin and underlying tissue is then gently pulled taut, repositioned, and sutured to create an improved shape and contouring. Depending on the type of technique and your individuals needs, the underlying muscles may also be tightened, or your doctor may place implants or your own tissue for a more noticeable enhancement.
We understand how frustrating it can be to commit yourself to a dedicated workout routine and healthy diet, but still not see the results you were hoping to achieve.
The Recovery Phase
Although each individual’s recovery time will vary depending on the technique and extent of the surgery, most patients will achieve a full recovery within two months. During the first couple of weeks, patients should avoid any heavy lifting or exercise, and expect to experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort. In the weeks following the procedure, patients can return to work, resume light exercise, and return to their normal routine. Your doctor can provide approval before you return to your previous level of activity.
Determining Your Candidacy
Achieving a more toned, defined physique can have a huge impact on your confidence and how you carry yourself. Despite its benefits, butt lift surgery is not right for everyone. In order to be considered a good candidate for the operation, patients should:
- Have excess tissue but not be considered overweight
- Be in good overall health, emotionally and physically
- Maintain a stable weight prior to the procedure
- Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, which can affect the ability to heal properly
If you are not a good candidate for a butt lift due to excess weight but would still like to improve your figure, you may qualify for a bariatric procedure.
