Considering a butt lift, but not sure what your options are?

What is a hybrid butt lift?

To perform a hybrid butt lift, Dr Justin Perron uses existing tissue and skin to reshape and lift your buttocks. Minimal injectables are used which means the outcomes are more predictable and there are fewer risks.

Dr perron will make an incision along the lower back—from hip to hip. Excess skin below the incision is pulled up which lifts the buttocks. Any extra skin and fat is then used to create a “pillow” which acts as the volume for the augmentation. Dr Perron then uses small injections in the ‘safe zone’ to shape the buttock to the desired look. To reduce the risk of infection you will be given an antibiotic to reduce the risk of infection.

Typically, this procedure can last between two to five hours.

Hybrid butt lift is great for weight loss patients

This surgery is great as part of a body contouring treatment plan after weight loss.

One thing which many weight loss surgery patients notice is a loss of fullness in the buttocks after weight loss.  A hybrid butt lift can remove excess fat and sagging skin to reshape and recontour. Sometimes fat grafting may be necessary to achieve your desired contour and shape.

The only injection is the general anaesthetic at the beginning of the procedure.

Surgery

Before Surgery

The goal of reshaping and contouring any aspect of the body, starts with being in good health, and fitness before a surgical procedure. If you plan on losing weight, aim for a weight that you consider ‘ideal’ before considering a hybrid butt lift. Being in shape before this procedure will ensure an ideal outcome, and quicker recovery.

Procedure

This procedure usually takes a couple of hours, and is performed under a general anesthetic. In some cases, you may need to stay in hospital after the procedure for a few days to recover, especially if combined with other procedures. You will need to wear a post-operative garment for several weeks to ensure a good outcome.

Other Options

What are my other options?

Another option is a Brazilian Butt Lift, however this procedure is quite dangerous and involves removing fat from one area of the body via liposuction and transferring it to the buttocks for a more round and perky shape. This procedure can cost up to $15,000 and unfortunately has the highest mortality rate of any cosmetic procedure, over 1 in every 3,000 operations end in death. The reason a Brazilian Butt Lift is such an unsafe procedure is that the process of injecting the body fat back into the buttocks can easily result in the needle intersecting with a vain and having the fat transfer through the vein straight to the heart and lungs resulting in a very quick death. It’s extremely important to understand the risks associated with such a difficult surgery, Dr Perron is confident that the Hybrid Butt Lift is the most suitable and safe procedure for patients that want to improve their buttocks area.

If you do decide you would still like to invest in a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, you need to do a lot of research and find an accredited Plastic Surgeon that is on the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons Member Database. Always ask to see before and after photos from your chosen plastic surgeon to assure you will be able to achieve your preferred results.

The other option is having gel or silicone implants inserted in the buttocks, this procedure was once quite common but more and more patients that underwent the surgery had ruptured their implants and the silicone or gel would then leak through the body and create a lumpy undesirable appearance that could easily result in infection or damage to your organs. Fixing a ruptured implant can be difficult and often results in a lack of symmetry to the treated area and can even result in the need to have a secondary surgery.
