Dropped butts are not aesthetically pleasing but seen frequently after weight loss and in elderlies.
The techniques for treating this deformity are summarized below:
Buttock (gluteal) lift. In this technique excess skin of the buttock is removed or buried under the remaining skin from a cut at the upper border of buttock. This technique can be combined with tummy tuck. Although it gives beautiful results the remaining scar sometimes may cause trouble in sensitive persons.
Buttock suspension. This technique uses suture suspension instead of cutting and suturing the skin. Special or ordinary surgical sutures are threaded from small puncture holes and the skin over the buttock is suspended by these sutures. The best thing about this technique is there is no scar. However the longevity of the results are not evaluated enough yet.
