Buttock lift

As the years go by, the buttocks change: less muscle, more fat, and finally a sagging skin with a feeling of cellulite and a change in shape (drooping and sagging).

The buttock lift will then tighten the skin of the buttocks and contour the buttocks for a rounder shape. The surgical operation involves scars, the size and location of which will depend on the operating procedure. Buttock lift surgery can be done in two ways:

  • the upper butt lift, to tighten the skin of the entire buttock upwards, with a scar above the buttocks.
  • the lower butt lift, to remove the “banana roll”; incisions are located in the gluteal fold.

In both cases, UrgoTouch ® laser scar treatment can be performed following this operation, in the operating room, to give you every chance of having a better scar. Good to know: other techniques can be used to beautify the buttocks: liposculpture, lipostructure or buttock prostheses.
