Buttock lift surgery (gluteoplasty) lifts and tightens the skin of the buttocks. It improves the tone and tautness of the skin. It does not add volume to the buttocks. Buttock lift surgery is usually performed on patients with large amounts of loose hanging skin that has lost it’s elasticity. This can be due to extreme weight loss or age related changes.
The ultimate aim is to give you a smoother attractive buttocks. As the skin is pulled up and over the buttocks, it gives your thighs a more toned and sleek appearance. Sometimes in lower body contouring will involve the use of liposuction to contour the shape of the buttocks by vacuuming out excess fatty tissue. A buttock lift is an invasive surgical procedure that requires several incisions, general anesthesia and several weeks of recovery time.
Buttock lift surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit an ideal image.
