Correction of saging buttock
Often just by inflating or re-inflating the buttock, the lower buttock will perk up and reduce or even eliminate any loose skin there. Occasionally, a lower buttock tuck (by removing the loose skin) may be necessary as well. The two accepted options for augmenting ("inflating") the buttock are fat transfer (aka Brazilian butt lift) and buttock implants. Unfortunately because much of the fat melts away after fat transfer, most of my patients do not have enough fat to begin with and thus are not good candidates. At least once per week I see a new patient in consultation that failed fat transfer to the buttock and remains frustrated over their buttock appearance. Buttock implants at least provide a reliable long term and predictable outcome. I strongly recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon that performs both procedures and not just the Brazilian buttock lift so that s/he can provide you with an unbiased recommendation for surgery. Glad o help.
