The buttocks are one of the body’s most noticeable features, and experiencing loose or sagging skin on the buttocks can cause embarrassment. At Hanemann Plastic Surgery, our buttock lift procedure elevates and tightens your buttocks, creating better contours in the lower half of your body.

What is a Buttock Lift?
Excess or sagging skin in the buttocks and thighs are caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, gravity, significant weight loss and aging. A buttock lift eliminates dimples, wrinkles and drooping and creates a firmer, tighter posterior.
There are several techniques to perform a buttock lift, depending on your individual condition and cosmetic goals. Doctor Hanemann will choose the method that best suits your needs.
During surgery, incisions are typically made at or below the waist. Excess skin and fat are then removed from the buttock and thigh areas, and the remaining skin is tightened and redraped over the buttocks to improve their position and appearance. While a buttock lift does not add volume or shape to your buttocks, it does create a tighter, more pleasing appearance overall.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Buttock Lift?
Men and women with excess, sagging skin or dimpled thighs may be candidates for buttock lift surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Hanemann, factors such as your overall health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations will be evaluated to determine which course of treatment is right for you.
What is the Recovery Like?
After your buttock lift procedure, a sterile dressing will be applied and a compression garment may be issued in order to reduce swelling and aid in skin tightening. Any post-surgical discomfort you may experience can be easily controlled with pain medication prescribed to you by Dr. Hanemann.
Some patients may see results immediately, but swelling and bruising may be present for several months. Full results will be evident after the buttocks have fully healed, and your progress and healing will be monitored by Dr. Hanemann during your follow-up appointments.
The results of a buttock lift are designed to be long-lasting, but aging, gravity and weight fluctuations can still affect your results. Adopting a lifestyle of proper diet and exercise can help add longevity to your firmer, tighter buttocks.
