Butt Lift (Buttock Contouring)

After losing a large amount of weight or with age, the gluteal region may begin to sag and lose volume. To restore a youthful contour, a butt lift may be necessary in combination with liposuction or a fat injection. Often, to create an aesthetically pleasing gluteal region fat may be removed from one area, washed and treated and then injected into another area. The butt lift procedure involves an incision over the upper gluteal region with removal of excess skin. The gluteal fat is either repositioned or removed as well. The overall goal of the butt lift is to recreate a youthful gluteal region utilizing a various combination of techniques.
