While weight loss and physical activity can go a long way toward developing a well-toned body, there are occasionally other factors at play. Aging, pregnancy, sun damage, or genetics can produce buttocks that have a loss of skin elasticity, and therefore appear saggy. If you have been working to improve your body but have yet to see the results you desire, a butt lift may be the final component to reach your body image goals.

What Happens During a Butt Lift?
A buttock lift involves tucking the sagging buttock skin and tissues to create a lifted, firmer buttock. The incision runs into the crease at the back of the leg. Your specific treatment will depend upon your circumstances. A buttock lift is able to successfully treat dimpled skin, sagging or loose skin, and excess fat and tissue.
The surgery will require incisions that produce scarring, but Dr. Montilla will position the incisions in as discreet a position as possible. During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Montilla will thoroughly cover your incision placement.
