Will a Butt Lift Get Rid of my Cellulite and Stretch Marks?

As we age, gravity begins to play a more crucial role in the way our body and skin appear. This is especially true in the area of the buttocks. Many people find themselves facing sagging of hanging skin on the buttocks and in surrounding areas. For those looking to get rejuvenate the gluteal region, a butt lift performed by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Richard J. Brown may be the answer.

Much as the name of the surgery sounds, a butt lift focuses on lifting and tightening the skin of the buttocks. Excess skin is removed and the surrounding tissue is re-positioned to create a more youthful and pleasing body contour. Although the surgery might include the removal of small amounts of fat along with excess skin, a butt lift is not intended to remove significant fat deposits.

The butt lift procedure offered by Dr. Brown should not be confused with a Brazilian butt lift, which is the process of adding volume to the buttock area with injections of the patient’s’ own fat to create a more full or lifting effect.

Those looking for a butt lift includes anyone healthy enough to undergo elective surgery who have experienced sagging of the skin in their buttocks. People who have lost a significant amount of weight might also look to shape up their bodies with a butt lift. Women who have had several children in the past might also be interested in restoring their buttocks to the way they looked before having children.

Many people ask if a butt lift will get rid of cellulite or stretch marks that are currently present in the buttock region. To be clear, a butt lift will not get rid of cellulite, rather it will tighten the area and contour it to a more youthful shape. Stretch marks can only be removed inthe area where skin is removed. The outcome will be different for each person, but generally speaking, stretch marks and cellulite have the tendency to be much improved after surgery. It is important to note that neither cellulite or stretch marks can be excised, if they are not in the line of your incision.

Many patients that have had a butt lift by Dr. Brown have also had liposuction at the same time for additional contouring and shaping. Dr. Brown suggests that patients are at a stable weight or an ideal weight before considering a butt lift.
