A buttock lift, also known as a gluteoplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the shape and appearance of the buttocks. It involves removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin to lift and enhance the contour of the buttocks. This procedure can help address sagging, loose skin, and lack of volume in the buttocks, resulting from factors such as aging, weight loss, or genetics.
During a buttock lift, incisions are made in the buttock crease or above the buttock, and excess skin and fat are removed. The remaining skin is then lifted and tightened, creating a firmer and more lifted appearance. In some cases, liposuction may also be performed to remove excess fat from the surrounding areas for further sculpting and contouring or fat grafting can be added to the buttock to restore volume loss.
