And, there is much to discuss. This procedure that has long been popular in countries like Brazil is now gaining popularity in the United States. This is thanks, in part, to well-endowed celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj.

In some cases, a buttock lip (also known as belt lipectomy) involves simply raising and tightening the skin over the buttocks to make them appear less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled. In other cases, implants are placed in the buttocks to give them more volume.

A buttock lift can improve the appearance of buttocks that are sagging as a result of weight loss, aging, gravity, genetics or a combination of these factors. If fitness and weight loss programs have failed to help you achieve the results you are looking for, you may be a good candidate for a buttock lift or some other type of body contouring procedure. Candidates should also be non-smokers who have realistic goals and a positive outlook and who are committed to leading a healthy lifestyle. This includes eating a well-balanced diet and maintaining a proper fitness regimen.

The best way to determine if this type of cosmetic surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. An experienced plastic surgeon can recommend the best procedure or combination of procedures to help you reach your goals.
