Can A Lower Buttock Lift Fix My Collapsed Glute From Aggressive Banana Roll Liposuction?

Q: Dr. Eppley, After doing extensive research, I came across your name and some of your kids studies. Five years ago I had a BBL performed. The surgeon performed Lipo on the banana roll area, very aggressively, and the glute on the right side has collapsed. I am curious about the option of an infra Glo thigh lift to correct the ptosis. If you could also speak to scarring long-term and what that looks like that would be helpful.

A:I can certainly see the merits of a right lower buttock lift/tuck given its much lower and asymmetric position on the right since this is the only way to change it. Scarring is of course the tradeoff for doing it, which as along as it stays away from the labia medially and does not go beyond the lateral crease into the hip area, generally does well with a low rate of the need for scar revision.
