I've had this imperfection on my buttocks since I was 20 I am now 24. Due to weight loss this dent/imperfection is now more noticeable. I have had cellulite massages focusing on the area thinking its probably just some really bad cellulite. What can I do to fix this problem? It makes me feel very insecure when I wear leggings and jeans...it looks like a permanent panty line! please help!

Is This Cellulite or is my Butt Deformed?
This is just a depression, and this can be improved with fat grafting to the buttock area. I perform about 500 Brazilian buttlifts each year, and this procedure is the most surgeon dependent plastic surgery procedure. You do not want to have to do the procedure again. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures and Brazilian buttlifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

This is a congenital band and not really cellulite. This can be released and filled with fat but results will not be a perfect correction. Also you could try Juvederm injections in the area but they may only help 50%. See an ABPS surgeon who has vast buttocks experience. My Best, Dr C
Based on your photos I would not consider this true cellulite but somewhat of a variation because it is likely from a tethering ligamentous band pulling in the skin. The ligamentous band can be surgically released and then filled with fat grafting. Glad to help...
