For people who have loose, sagging skin around their buttocks, exercise alone is unlikely to produce a well-toned appearance with smooth contours. In addition to genetic factors, age, pregnancy and weight fluctuations can all contribute to poor skin elasticity and sagging in the buttocks.A surgical buttock lift can help you recapture a youthful, firmer looking body. It improves the shape and tone of the skin, as well as addressing dimpled, irregular skin surfaces commonly known as cellulite.
A buttock lift procedure:
- Can raise up excess skin in the buttocks, which may be shaped unevenly or hang low and flat
- Address sagging skin that may hang loose around the rear thigh
- Tighten the buttock area
Please note: This procedure will not remove excess fat. In instances when skin elasticity is poor, a combination of a buttock lift procedure and liposuction may be recommended.
Candidates for this procedure are individuals with soft tissue looseness in one or more body areas, healthy adults who do not have medical conditions that may interfere with healing, non-smokers and people committed to leading a healthy lifestyle.
The results of a buttock lift are immediately noticeable, but may take up to one or two years to fully achieve the desired results. As you age, it is natural for the skin to lose some firmness, but the improvement of the procedure should be relatively permanent.
