When is this procedure indicated?
When there is an evident ptosis (descent) of the buttocks, with skin excess at the level of the gluteal grooves.
How is it performed?
It is a surgical intervention that can be performed under general / spinal anesthesia, with a variable duration from about 2 to 3 hours. The scar is at the level of the superior gluteal profile to the supragluteal sulcus, enabling the elevation of the buttocks through the removal of two adipo-cutaneous flaps.
Social life and working activity can be resumed after about 2-3 weeks avoiding physical exertion.
