Many of our younger patients are visiting us for a buttocks lift because they have lost a lot of weight in an effort to get healthy and their buttocks has shrunk as a result. Being physically fit is more popular than ever. There are blogs, Instagram posts and Pinterest tips on how to lose weight and get in shape. More grocery stores are carrying organic, gluten-free and vegan options for those who are looking to not only eat low-calorie but also ensure that every calorie counts.
This craze is actually a really positive one because it has the ability to improve people's health. After all, eating healthy and exercising is good no matter how old you are. The only downside to this trend is that some people are eating so healthy and getting so fit that their curves have virtually disappeared. For women and men who want to be thin but also shapely, this presents a challenge. Do they start eating more calories or exercising less in order to regain curves or do they visit us for plastic surgery? In many cases, people are choosing plastic surgery.
Continue exercising and eating healthy
Our recommendation is to remain at a healthy weight so if curves have disappeared due to getting in shape, scheduling a buttocks lift is an excellent option. This allows our patients to continue their healthy routines while still enjoying curves that make them feel attractive. It is possible to have it all with our help.
The only thing to be aware of is that after the surgery there will be a recovery time. It could be several weeks or even a couple of months before someone is truly ready to get back to their normal routine. We will discuss this in greater detail during a consultation. Just know that everyone responds to surgery differently and some people may recover right away while others need a little more time. It is important to listen to the body and take cues from how it responds. We also provide guidance and recommendations during follow-up appointments. Of course, this recovery should not influence someone's dietary choices.
Customized results with implants
A benefit to buttock implants is that it is possible to customize the procedure to yield the results a patient is looking for. With diet and exercise, there is no way to determine where weight will be lost or how much. With an augmentation, a patient can literally decide how large they want their buttocks to be. The key is making a decision based on what makes an individual woman comfortable.
A buttocks lift is also an option
We also help a lot of patients who visit us after losing weight and have found that their buttocks are not as perky as they used to be. This can happen. The weight from the buttocks can be lost and the skin can begin to sag. This can be incredibly frustrating for someone who is otherwise in great shape. In this case, we will conduct an examination to determine if it would be better to perform a lift or an augmentation.
