A buttock lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the buttocks.
Excess skin and fat from aging, heredity factors, or after dramatic weight loss in the gluteal area can be drastically improved with a buttock lift. Not to be confused with a “Brazilian butt lift,” which adds volume using fat transfer, this procedure involves only removing skin and fat through surgical excision and liposuction.
By raising and tightening the skin over the buttocks, a buttock lift makes the buttocks appear less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled.
The results of buttock lift surgery are visible almost immediately, but it may take several months for your final results to fully develop. A buttock lift does not add volume or shape to your existing buttocks, but it can give it a sleeker, more toned appearance. Keep in mind that maintaining a stable weight is crucial for retaining your results.
Who can have this surgery?
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not helped you achieve your goals, buttock lift surgery may be right for you.
Good candidates for buttock lift surgery include:
Individuals with loss of skin elasticity in the buttock area due to extreme weight loss or aging
Individuals with thighs that are crinkled, dimpled or flabby due to lack of exercise or cellulite
Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle including proper nutrition and fitness.
