Buttock lift? Questions to PD Dr. Mathias Tremp

Firm buttocks

Is the result of the buttock lift permanent?

After a surgical buttock lift, a new, discreet lowering can occur in the course of the following years.

Brazilian Butt Lift

If the so-called "Brazilian Butt Lift" has been performed, i.e. buttock augmentation and firming with autologous fat treatment, a certain percentage of the fat injection is dissolved 3 - 6 months after the operation. However, the result after that is stable and remains for life.

What requirements do I have to meet as a patient?

If you are a smoker, you must stop smoking for 4 weeks before and after the procedure. After the procedure, regular check-ups are necessary.

For optimal wound healing, you must wear a special compression girdle for 6-8 weeks. You can resume physical activity after 4 weeks. The fat in the Brazilian Butt Lift can be removed from anywhere and is also possible with slim patients.

Did the scars from the buttock lift remain visible?

The scars are placed in such a way that they cannot be seen in a bikini or underwear. If the Brazilian Butt Lift is performed, the scars are barely visible after one year and only 4-5 mm through the puncture points.

What are the risks with a buttock lift?

Possible risks are infections, bruising or widened scars (1-2%). The greatest risk in treatment with autologous fat is the so-called thrombosis, i.e. vascular occlusion by the patient's own fat.

To avoid this, the own fat treatment is not injected into the muscle but into the fat tissue. After the operation there is a temporary numbness, which usually recovers after 6 months.

How long does the procedure take, when can I go back to work and exercise?

The procedure takes about 90 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the findings and the desired result of the operation. The inability to work lasts for about 10-14 days, after 4 weeks you can resume light physical activity.

When does the insurance cover part of the operation costs?

The health insurance company very rarely covers the costs of the procedure, occasionally in patients after significant weight loss. The treatment with own fat is a cosmetic procedure and must be paid for by the patient.
