Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

What is a Buttock Lift?

The objective of the buttock lift (butt lift) procedure is to improve the contour of the buttocks by removing excess skin and lifting the buttocks to a higher position, giving it a more youthful and aesthetic appearance.

 

A Good Candidate for Buttock Lift

Healthy non-smoking individuals between the ages of 35-65 who are self-conscious or unhappy with the appearance of their buttock area due to age, weight loss, medication or loose muscle are good candidates for this surgery.

 

Depending on the patient’s desired end results, buttock implants may be chosen instead of the lift to increase volume, or liposuction may be chosen. Patients who undergo a buttock lift have often undergone other procedures, such as the tummy tuck or thigh lift, however some patients have specifically requested this procedure alone.

 

 

 

Buttock Lift Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon, who will determine the best method that will achieve your desired end results. There are two locations for incisions. If the sagging in the buttock is minimal, an incision may be made in the natal cleft, the center of the buttocks.

 

If there is a large amount of excess skin sagging in the buttock area, incisions will be made just above the buttock, and below the lower back. Plastic surgeons are usually very careful about where to place incision lines.

 

The incision is made in a place that can be hidden. Excess skin is removed and if there is fat to be removed, it will be extracted via liposuction. The incisions are closed up with dissolvable or removable stitches, in which case you may have to return to your hospital or clinic for a follow-up visit to have your stitches removed.

 

This procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis.

 

Average duration of Buttock Lift Surgery: several hours (more if liposuction is involved)
