Luckily we have surgical procedures that can help achieve a well-proportioned and shapely bottom so desired.

What options can improve the butt shape?

A butt lift improves the look of your buttocks. It does not add volume but rather removes excess skin and fat and repositions the skin to create a firmer more toned butt. This is a particularly good to do if you have lost a lot of weight and need to get rid of excess skin.

A butt lift can be performed in conjunction with other body contouring or fat grafting. In addition to the lift, excess fat is liposuctioned from the abdomen, lower back or thighs and then injected back into the butt area to add volume and shape. The advantage of this is that you increase the size of the butt without implants while redistributing the bodies’ own fat deposits. This results in a better proportions and a sleeker silhouette.

Sometimes there is insufficient fat to harvest from other parts of the body, in this case implants are used to achieve the desired size.
