Also known as butt lift or gluteoplasty
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. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful buttock-lift surgery and are pleased with the results.
When to Consider a Buttock Lift
• If you have loose, sagging skin and extra fat in your buttocks
• If you recently experienced dramatic weight loss and are close to your ideal weight
• If your gluteal area makes you feel self-conscious
• If the excess skin and fat make you uncomfortable or cause mobility problems
