Today’s fashions, along with the popularity of some Hollywood stars admired for their ample, shapely derrieres, have made buttock lifts more common in recent years. In fact, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, buttock augmentation experienced the greatest growth of all surgical procedures performed by plastic surgeons during 2014.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your bottom and no amount of exercise has produced the results you desire, board-certified plastic surgeon Jay H. Lucas, M.D., can surgically contour the area to enhance your figure.
A soft tissue buttock lift is a reshaping procedure which yields excellent results. Depending on your anatomy, you may wish to add volume to a backside that is flat, lift a sagging or droopy backside, or reshape a large, flabby backside into a more attractive, rounded form. During a consultation with Dr. Lucas, he will discuss your goals and recommend a surgical plan that is right for you.
If added volume is what you want, Dr. Lucas may recommend liposuction to remove excess fat from one or more areas of your body – for example your flanks, back, thighs, or abdomen – and then transfer that fat to your buttocks. This serves the dual purpose of slimming and contouring the area the fat is taken from, as well as enhancing the shape of your buttocks. This process, known as fat grafting, is a safe, effective way of contouring your body.
If you carry extra fat on your back, Dr. Lucas may recommend a surgical procedure to flip that fat and reattach it to your buttocks. The fat retains its original blood supply, and is shaped and contoured to look like buttocks.
If you have a loose, sagging backside, a buttock lift can remove excess skin, and tighten the area to give you a shapelier, smoother backside. Depending on your anatomy, extra volume can be added as well, as described above.
Finally, if you feel your backside is too large and flabby, liposuction – often paired with a buttock lift – is an excellent tool for removing fat and reshaping the contour to a more appealing look.
