Whether you call it your bum, your bottom, backside, derriere, booty, or rear end — does it need some help? If you have considered surgery to make it look more contoured, let’s get some answers to see if the procedure is right for you.
A buttock lift is a cosmetic procedure to remove excess skin and fat and improve the appearance of the buttocks. The skin is repositioned to create a more toned look, and it can be combined with a tummy tuck or lower body lift to contour the buttocks, groin, thighs, and abdomen at the same time.
Additionally, it can be combined with a procedure to alter the shape or size of the buttocks with implants and fat grafts.
The goal is to have a smoother and more toned look.
Why Get One?
If you have loose sagging skin, extra fat from aging or genetics, have lost a large amount of weight, or you find your gluteal area unattractive, a buttock lift can improve all these issues.
Sun damage, fluctuations in your weight, pregnancy, and certain unwanted gifts from your mother can all contribute to sagging skin and loss of elasticity.
- If you have lost a lot of weight and stayed at your goal weight for at least 6 to 12 months
- If you are overweight and can’t lose fat in that area with exercise and diet
- If you are at a normal weight but want some enhancement to the lower part of your body
- You are at a normal weight but you have sagging skin due to aging
Not everyone is a good candidate for a buttock lift. It is important to speak with Dr. Wendy Gottlieb in Reston, VA concerning physical issues like diabetes or heart disease, smoking, and your BMI that might prevent you from having the procedure.
If you are planning to lose a lot of weight, it would be best to do that before having a buttock lift.
Is A Buttock Lift Right For You?
If you are tired of that extra weight and bulk in your gluteal area preventing you from achieving the slim look you desire, a buttock lift could be right for you.
