This operation is designed to elevate the sagging buttock. Despite exercise and weight loss, sagging skin remains to mar even the most beautiful of figures.
The only solution to this problem is the buttock lift operation which removes a wedge of tissue encompassing the large, sagging portion of the under area of the buttocks. This is done through an incision placed in the lower buttocks crease.
For those patients with large severely hanging buttocks, a larger incision is required, which extends beyond the buttocks crease, around to the hip area. This is necessary to remove all of the redundant skin and tissues to give the buttock a fuller and more defined appearance. Although the scar from this procedure is usually visible, it can often be hidden by the styles of modern bathing suits. The marked improvement in the buttock contour is usually well worth the required scar.
