Buttockplasty/Gluteoplasty (Buttock Lift)
Excess skin and fat in the buttock area can be removed with buttockplasty. This procedure is usually associated with redundant skin in the buttock area after significant weight loss. A buttock lift can address the area above the buttocks or below the gluteal folds. As with many other body contour surgeries, patients are exchanging contour for scars. Your surgeon will assess each of your concerns and design the appropriate surgical plan as needed.
