Brazilian Buttocks Lift (BBL)Plastic Surgery in Latham, New York

Begin Your Journey

The last procedure to enhance buttocks includes a lifting procedure. If the buttocks have excess skin, the excess skin will need to be addressed. Dr. Polynice will excise any excess skin located around the buttocks by performing a traditional butt lift. The incision is placed on the upper portion of the buttocks and as the buttocks are lifted, the extra skin is removed.

Sometimes if there is a small amount of extra skin in the creases of the bottom, he can hide the incision there.

Dr. Polynice may recommend any combination of the above. Each patient has unique problem areas and desired results, so through the consultation process Dr. Polynice will devise the best course of action for each patient. Often patients undergo liposuction and the lifting procedure in conjunction with implants.

Brazilian Buttocks Lift Risks & Recovery

Risks for all of the above buttocks lift procedures include bleeding, infection, asymmetry, changes in skin sensations and scarring.

Recovery periods are generally one to two weeks until patients can resume daily activities and four to six weeks until patients can perform strenuous activities, including exercise.

Patients will need someone to stay with them the first night following the outpatient surgery because of the aftereffects of anesthesia. Dr. Polynice places all sutures internally, meaning that they will not need to be removed. Steri Strips are applied but will fall off on their own after two to three weeks.
