Doctors disagree on the issues of scarring with not suturing versus resolution of the swelling allowed by leaving the wounds open to drain fluid. Since the incisions are small, and the amount of fluid that must drain out is large, some surgeons opt to leave the incisions open, while others suture them only partially, leaving space for the fluid to drain out.
The rules about who can perform injections vary from state to state in the U.S. In some places only a doctor is allowed, but most states allow other medical professionals to work under their supervision. It’s important to look for a provider who is qualified with proven experience. Providers on RealSelf have been screened to make sure they meet the medical requirements for their practice location.
Botox complications are rare and usually the result of a poor injection or incorrect dosage. If Botox is injected incorrectly, it could unintentionally diffuse into other areas, causing drooping eyelids, a crooked smile, or crooked eyebrows. If too much Botox is injected, you could be left with a frozen look until it wears off. The good news is Botox results are never permanent and will gradually disappear over three to four months.
If your primary concern is mild sagging in your buttocks as a result of weight fluctuation, aging, or hereditary conditions, you may be able to improve your appearance with topical treatments. These lotions, creams, and serums only mildly tighten your skin, and their results are temporary. However, they may be a good option for patients who want to enhance their appearance without undergoing surgery. They can also be used in addition to butt lift procedures to improve results.
