Gluteal lift at the University of Ottawa
Weight loss and the aging process can create sagging skin and uneven contours over the buttocks. Ottawa patients wishing to restore form and youth to this area of the body can opt for a buttock lift procedure. An assessment of the patient’s health and medical history will ascertain their candidacy for surgery. A treatment plan is then developed to attain their aesthetic objectives. Buttock lift incisions are usually made inconspicuously near the gluteal area in order to minimize visible scarring. In some cases liposuction is performed to remove excess fat. In addition, this procedure can often be combined with a lower body lift.The underlying fat and connective tissues are then tightened and lifted and excess skin is trimmed and redraped for a rejuvenated and pleasing outcome. Patients under the care of plastic surgeons at the University of Ottawa will be informed on what to expect pre-, during and post procedure to ensure their comfort, safety and optimal recovery.
