Buttock and Outer Thigh Lift

Following weight loss, skin and soft tissues of the buttock and outer thigh can become loose and sag.  Many patients do not like the appearance of the sagging skin in these two areas.  Dr. Martin performs buttock and outer thigh lift to tighten the skin in these areas, resulting in more a pleasing contour and appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate for Buttock and Outer Thigh Lift?

Good candidates for buttock and outer thigh lift surgery are patients who have:

  • Undergone significant weight loss
  • Have a stable weight
  • Have loose, sagging skin of the buttock and outer thigh
  • Whose weight is close to or within ideal range

How is Buttock and Outer Thigh Lift Performed?

Dr. Martin performs this procedure in the operating room with patients asleep. Incisions are made along the lower back at the top of the buttock and extend towards the side of the body. The excess skin and soft tissue is removed. The remaining skin is tightened and the tissues of the buttock and lateral thigh are elevated. Surgical tapes, a dressing and compression garment are applied at the end of the procedure.

Recovery Following Surgery

Patients can go home the same day of surgery. Patients are encouraged to be up moving around but to avoid strenuous activity for 3 weeks following surgery. Surgical tapes are removed 2 weeks after surgery and at that point scar treatment is applied to the incisions. Full recovery is 6 weeks after surgery. There are several follow up visits with Dr. Martin after surgery to ensure patients heal properly.
