Gluteal Thigh Lift

in Rogers, Bentonville, Fayetteville, Springdale Arkansas

A gluteal thigh lift is a plastic surgery procedure to improve the tone of the underlying tissue in the buttocks. Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your thigh (gluteal area) to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be completely corrected through exercise. If you have lost some skin elasticity in your thigh, hip or buttock areas, your skin area sags or has an “orange peel” or dimpled appearance or the appearance of your thigh improves dramatically when you lift the lax skin, you may be a candidate for a gluteal thigh lift.

What can I expect with gluteal thigh lift consultation?

It is important for your consultation that you are prepared to discuss your medical history, which may include medical conditions, allergies, previous surgeries, and current medications. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease, this procedure may not be ideal for you. Our plastic surgeon will also examine factors for evaluation, including how much you currently weigh and whether you’re planning on losing or gaining more weight in the near future.

What can I expect during a gluteal thigh lift procedure?

Gluteal thigh lift procedures are performed in our fully accredited, state-of-the-art on-site surgery center in Fayetteville, Arkansas. During the operation, you will be closely monitored to ensure your safety. Before your procedure, you will be medicated with general anesthesia.

After surgery is complete, you will be further monitored for a few hours in a recovery area. You may experience some discomfort, but this is generally controlled with prescription pain medication. Our doctor will give you specific aftercare instructions for recovery. In most cases, gluteal thigh lift patients are permitted to go home a few hours after surgery.
