- A buttock lift can help improve sagginess in the buttocks.

A buttock lift procedure removes excess fat and sagging skin from the buttocks, thighs and surrounding areas, contouring the area to give you a more toned appearance.
As you age, and after many years battling against the natural force of gravity, your skin loses its elasticity – meaning your skin becomes looser and sagging occurs. Loss of skin elasticity is further advanced and accelerated by weight fluctuations, genetics, sun damage, and other natural and controllable factors.
A buttock lift, which is considered a cosmetic procedure, can help improve sagginess in the buttocks. For many, improving the appearance of this lower area helps boost body image and increase self-confidence. Usually, a buttock lift is performed in conjunction with other body contouring procedures to achieve the best results, such as liposuction or a body lift.

A buttock lift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure aided with general anesthesia. An incision will be made in your lower back, around or just below the waistline. In general, the procedure involves lifting the skin from the incision to remove excess fat and skin, and then tightening the remaining tissue and closing the incision.
If additional volume or projectino of the buttocks is desired, lower back tissue can be shaped into an implant and placed into the buttock to increase the size and improve the shape. This additional technique is autologous buttock augmentatino (using your own tissue as a buttock implant).
It’s common to feel moderate pain after the procedure, which can be alleviated with medication. You may also be prescribed antibiotics and anticoagulants to help with healing and recovery. Follow all instructions from your healthcare providers.
Usually, patients enjoy long-lasting results after a buttock lift procedure. Controlling your weight is key to maintaining your surgery results.
