Weight loss does not mean you also have to lose your curves; however, the bad news is that when you shed fat, it normally leaves behind saggy skin. One of the important body areas that get affected by weight loss are the buttocks. Diet and exercise can help remove excess fat from different areas of the body, but they can also decrease the fat in your buttocks. This will make your butt appear smaller and/or saggy. Smaller and saggy butts after weight loss will negatively affect your overall aesthetic appearance because your butt plays a crucial part in defining your body contour and profile. People who are overweight mostly suffer from the effects of weight loss on the derriere. Many women are scared to lose weight because of this side effect. Fortunately, there are ways to correct butts that have been affected by weight loss. Plastic surgery is a popular method to fix the aesthetic flaws in your buttocks. The common plastic surgery procedure to address weight loss-induced imperfections include buttock lift, buttock augmentation, and Brazilian butt lift. Is the butt lift effective after weight loss? There is no doubt that if you have experienced drastic weight loss, your buttocks are already smaller and saggy. A popular way to get rid of excess, saggy skin in your buttocks is the buttock lift procedure. The surgery is ideal for people who have undergone massive weight loss and are closer to their ideal weight. Butt lift involves removal of the excess, saggy skin from your rear ends. It may also involve the use of liposuction to remove stubborn fat pockets from the area around the butt. After the procedure, your butt will appear toned, tighter, firmer, and smooth. The good news is that the outcomes achieved via butt lift are permanent in most cases. However, recovery after butt lift involves prolonged downtime, and future weight changes can have negative effects on your butt. While butt lift can remove the excess skin from your rear ends, it will make your derriere appear smaller. It is for this reason that many plastic surgeons suggest patients to undergo the Brazilian butt lift or a combo of buttock augmentation and butt lift. In a nutshell, a butt lift can treat the sagginess in your butt after weight loss. If you aim to achieve bigger behinds, you should go for a combo of butt lift and butt implant surgery. Buttock implant surgery The use of buttock implants to address the negative effects of weight loss on the buttocks is a popular plastic surgery practice. If weight loss has left excessively saggy skin in your butt, it is recommended that you seek a butt lift in association with a butt implant procedure. However, if the sagginess in your rear ends is mild to moderate, butt implants alone are sufficient to address the skin sagginess and smaller butt size at the same time. The butt implant surgery involves the use of prosthetic devices called implants to increase your buttock size. The implants are made of highly durable, semi-solid silicone material. This means there is no risk of implant rupture once you get silicone butt implants. The results are permanent as long as there is no complication like infection or implant shifting. The silicone implants are placed inside the buttocks via strategically placed incisions. The size and shape of the incision depend on your surgeon’s expertise and the size of the implant. There are different sizes of butt implants, and your surgeon will determine the ideal implant size and shape for you. The implants can be placed either underneath, within, or above the gluteal muscle. In most cases, it is placed within the muscle. If weight loss has resulted in excessive sagginess in your butt apart from making your butt smaller, you will need a combo of butt lift and implant surgery. The former will address the issues related to the sagginess, whereas the latter will improve your butt size and perkiness. After the combo procedure, your buttocks will appear large, firmer, toned, voluptuous, and fuller. Is Brazilian butt lift effective after weight loss? Weight loss means a decrease in your body’s fat level. If you have experienced weight loss via diet and exercise, chances are the stubborn fat pockets in localized areas of your body are still there because they are highly resistant to diet and exercise. This means that if weight loss has left you with smaller buttocks, there is still a chance to address the issue via Brazilian butt lift. However, your plastic surgeon will determine your candidacy for the procedure after examining your butt and fat donor sites. If you have enough fat left in your body areas, you may qualify for the procedure. Also known as autologous fat transfer, the Brazilian butt lift involves the use of liposuction to remove the stubborn fat pockets from your body areas like the abdomen, sides, flanks, thighs, calves, and upper back. The removed fat is then processed and injected into your buttocks with special needles. After the procedure, your buttocks will appear large, perky, shapely, and voluptuous. Since fat transfer can increase your butt size only on a mild or moderate level, your surgeon may recommend you butt implants or a combo of fat transfer and butt implants. Conclusion Weight loss can have negative consequences for your buttocks. If you are overweight, massive weight loss will make your butt saggy and smaller. In order to correct this condition, your plastic surgeon may recommend buttock implants, butt lift, or a Brazilian butt lift. In most cases, a combo of two of these three procedures is used to address both buttock sagginess and smaller butt size after weight loss.
