Sagging buttocks can be restored to their original position by means of buttock lifting surgery or buttocks shaping. The cut is made in the crease where buttocks and thigh meet. Excess skin is removed and the fullness and shape of the buttock cheeks are restored using various techniques. Unfortunately, as is the case with all body-shaping surgery, it is not possible to predict the quality of the scar in advance, even when the best suturing techniques are used.
For the first few weeks after the procedure, the patient must wear an elastic post surgical compression garment and sitting should be avoided in order to avoid pressure on the newly formed scar tissue.
