Thank you for your question. Your scars will have to be evaluated by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and then determine if the scars will benefit from revision, and if other tissue needs to be lifted or redirected. I hope this helps.

Scar revision following butt lift.

Thanks for your question.  It's always possible to revise the location of scars as long you have have additional laxity in your skin.  It's likely not possible to know for certain without a physical exam but if you are able to pinch extra skin where you would like to have the scars raised then I would say it is definitely possible to perform this type of revision.

Dear Tropical, 

It is usually possible to shift or re-position the scars resulting from a buttock lift but this requires a consultation and examination with board certified plastic surgeon before deciding which option is best for you.  Please schedule consultations with a few plastic surgeons before proceeding.  Best of luck.
