Definition of Butt Lift – Buttoplasty

Buttock plastic surgery (buttock lift) corrects sagging skin and subcutaneous fat in the buttock area. Loose skin along with subcutaneous fat is removed, creating tight, sculpted buttocks.

Along with abdominoplasty, thigh lift and arm plastic surgery, it is part of Bariatric Medicine (Obesity Medicine) which deals with the problems that arise after major weight loss.

Sedentary life, weight loss, obesity and gravity are the most common causes of sagging buttocks. In recent years he has been gaining more and more fans, mainly women.

Additional Information – Butt Lift FAQs:

Where is the buttock plastic incision – scar placed?
Each technique results in a different scar. For great relaxation, especially after a lot of weight loss, the scar is hidden inside the underwear, and is perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the torso (it can be part of the rounder abdominoplasty). In cases where a lot of removal is not required skin and subcutaneous fat, the scar is hidden between the buttocks (intergluteal groove). There are also cases where only the lower part of the skin of the buttocks can be removed, the so-called banana removal.

Can the placement of implants (fat, hyaluronic, prostheses) alone correct the buttocks?
In cases where we have a small loss of muscle mass or slight relaxation, we can correct the sagging of the buttocks by placing implants (silicone, fat or hyaluronic prostheses – Macrolane), without skin removal. In all other cases, we combine the lifting of the buttocks with placement of the implants, when the interested party wants more volume in the buttocks.

Can exercise correct sagging buttock skin?
Skin laxity is not corrected by exercise. In other words, the skin does not exercise. The skin can be attached to the underlying musculature, which can help tighten it a bit, but it’s not enough.

What do we mean by the term Brazilian Buttock Lift?
