Reader Question – Buttock Lift Technique to Not Lift Crack
Posted Dec 28 2010 10:30am
I noticed in the surgical buttock lift photos by the doctor that the scar doesn’t join at the top of the buttock crack. I’ve seen photos of patients who had this procedure with another doctor who did join the scar in the center, and the patients ended up with an awful elongated butt crack. I’m wondering if the doctor purposefully doesn’t join the scars in the center in order to avoid this outcome?
Different doctors use different techniques in their surgical practices. The appearance of the wound at closure hints to the technique but does not always make that technique obvious.
My body lift / buttock lift technique involves more than the scar. You will want to carefully evaluate your surgeon’s “Before & After” images as you choose who to employ for your operation. Body lift surgery is large in scale and can entail revisions. This is one of the reasons I usually stage my lower body lifts as two main operations of which the buttock lift is the second.
