Preparing before having butt augmentation

Enlargement of the buttocks or gluteal muscles (buttocks or serine) is a surgical procedure that helps to reshape and enlarge the buttocks. Injecting fat from the body's natural adipose tissue into the buttocks is one of the most common methods of buttock augmentation, which has been very popular over the past ten years.

It is possible to perform this surgical procedure using a prosthesis (implant), fat injection, or a combination of both methods. There are Different Types Of Butt Lift that you can read in this article.

Before having surgery your surgeon will explain whatever you have to know about preoperative instructions. Your past medical history, drug history, and also normal results of routine physical examinations are important to protect you from unexpected complications during the butt lift procedure.
For faster rehabilitation, you have to stop smoking at least six weeks before undergoing surgery. You have to notify your surgeon about medications you consume and avoid taking drugs like aspirin, certain anti-inflammatory drugs, and some herbal medications because they can cause uncontrolled bleeding. Try to be hydrated it helps the recovery process very much. It's better to have someone who can help and stay with you following the surgery and then drive you home. As a summary:

      • Get a blood test
      • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
      • Stop smoking
      • Avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding

expectations on the day of butt lift procedure

You can have the procedure in an accredited hospital, a free-standing ambulatory facility, or an office-based surgical suite.
This procedure takes about two hours.
At first, different types of medications are administered for being comfortable during your surgery. Most of the time general anesthesia is used for buttock augmentation but in some cases, local anesthesia or even sedation is enough for patients. They will monitor your vital signs during and after surgery(heart, blood pressure, pulse, and the amount of oxygen circulating in your blood).
After that, your surgeon will follow plans that you have discussed based on your desired goals.
After your operation, you will be taken to the recovery area and they monitor all your vital signs till you will be alert and stable.
You will have a compression garment over the liposuction areas and your buttocks.
After being stable you can go home.

Questions that patients should ask their surgeon before your surgery:

It is very important to be an active part of your surgery. Therefore, it is suggested that you ask the following questions in the initial consultation sessions

      • Am I a good candidate for butt lift surgery?
      • Are the results I want acceptable and realistic?
      • Can I see some of the before and after pictures from the previous patients?
      • Will my scars remain visible? 
      • Which anesthesia method do you recommend for me?
      • How much does butt lift surgery cost?
      • What are the side effects and risks of this surgery?

Recovery after your butt lift surgery

Ask your surgeon about sitting and sleeping after surgery. For example, you can use a pillow to minimize pressure on the wound, reduce pain, and heal the wound faster. Most patients can go to work after two weeks, as long as they do not sit for long periods of time and should avoid strenuous or prolonged activity for at least four to six weeks. During this period, the incisions should not be subjected to excessive pressure, clothing, or movement.

Aftercare for gluteoplasty

After the surgery, you will be transferred to a recovery room and placed under the care of nurses. Although in some cases butt lifts may be performed on patients without any general anesthetic so the surgeon may determine that you need to stay overnight in the hospital. At the very least, you should have a companion in the first 24 hours.

For quick recovery after the lift operation and having the best result, using a special gene is very important and can help reduce swelling and put the skin in the right place.

Aftercare and recovery processes
Depending on your surgery and your condition doctor will suggest the time you can return to your normal life and activities. You have to know about your post-surgical care instructions like :

      • Drains, if they have been placed
      • Normal symptoms you will experience
      • Potential signs of complications

Immediately after your buttock augmentation:

Your surgeon may put a drain near your implants to drain fluids after surgery for several days. Drainage tubes are mostly inserted into the channel to pour fluid away from the wound. Fluid drainage is very common after having large volume liposuction and bruising. Tight garments are used in operation areas for compression. Your surgeon will tell you how long and how to wear the garments. After operation and sedation wears off you feel some pain but you should contact your surgeon if you feel extreme or long-lasting pain. So don't be afraid because having some pain and swelling is completely normal after your operation and it may remain for weeks or months. In some cases, lymphatic massage is suggested to reduce swelling and facilitate better drainage of any fluid buildup.
You have to care about all instructions that your surgeon suggested. All instructions about wearing compression garments, care of your drains, taking an antibiotic if prescribed, and the level and type of activity that is safe. Following the instructions will make your recovery period shorter than you expect. It is important to realize that the amount of time it takes for recovery varies greatly among individuals (try to be realistic).

You must know that the recovery of buttocks augmentation is longer and more painful than other areas especially in walking, running, and even standing. You shouldn't stay in bed for a long time and you have to get up and walk on a post-operative day to maintain good circulation and prevent thrombo embolism . You are instructed to lie on your stomach in the back seat of the car to avoid pressure on your buttocks(try to have this position while sleeping and watching TV). You have to be in this position at least for three days. Many surgeons don't allow patients to sit for ten to fourteen days.

Your swelling may spread in the abdominal or thigh area but this is normal and be removed after some weeks. Although you may feel some pain, you can reduce it by prescribed painkillers. Moreover, antibiotics are prescribed to prevent inflammation in your surgery area.
For the elimination of fluids, drains will be placed for at least seven days.
For near eight weeks, you shouldn't sit without a pillow and you shouldn't have direct pressure on buttock areas. It's better to wear that compression garments for this period.
After the swelling subsides you can see the final results of your butt lift.
You can start exercise eight to ten weeks after your operation. However, if there are wound complications, you may have to wait three to four months before you go back to the gym.

Results of butt lift surgeries are long-lasting.

Even in the fat injection method, you will have your desired body form for the rest of your life. In methods in which implants are placed in the buttocks, these implants do not need to be removed unless you develop a late complication. If you look for the best results, it's important to return to your plastic surgeon's office for follow-up evaluations at prescribed times and whenever you notice any changes in your buttocks.
