Weight loss and ageing can all cause a loss of volume or fat in the buttocks which can lead the overlying skin to sag downwards. Lifting the buttock skin using a variety of surgical and non-surgical techniques can improve the youthful aspect of the buttocks and create a more rounded appearance in clothes.

There are several different procedures that can be used to improve the buttock shape and appearance. The buttock can be lifted, reshaped with liposuction or added to with implants or fat.
