Surgical buttocks lift refers to the procedure where you remove skin surplus from the buttocks that appeared due to more excessive weight loss or with ageing because of the skin elasticity loss.
Together with skin surplus removal, this procedure also gives you the effect of buttocks lift.

For surgical buttock lift it is necessary to following tests: complete blood count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, coagulogram, blood glucose levels, urea and creatinine concentration, complete urine tests and to record electrocardiogram (ECG) and, if it is necessary, do the internist examination. All these examinations can be done in Polyclinic Arcadia.
ADMISSION TO POLYCLINIC
Admission to polyclinic is possible during the morning hours on the day of surgery, or the evening before the procedure if it suits you better. Before the surgery, a surgeon is going to examine you once again and go through the surgery details together with you.
Buttock lift is usually performed under the general anaesthesia, but it can be performed under local anaesthesia too, depending on your agreement with the doctor.
There are more techniques for this procedure, but most frequently is used the one where the incision is performed in the gluteus crease, so that the scar after the surgery remains minimally visible.
During examination, our surgeon is going to recommend you the best options and tell you if this procedure should be combined with other procedures like buttock augmentation.

Surgery result is visible immediately, but it takes some time for hematomas and swellings to disappear. Final result is visible after one month.
