Can Lower Buttock Lifts Successfully Correct Botched Liposuction?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in lower buttock lifts. Ten years ago I had liposuction on my buttocks, banana rolls, and inner and outer thighs. The gluteal band was broken and a double crease created. I have been searching for a solution. Have you have any successful buttock lifts due to botched lipo? Thanks
A: About half of all lower buttock lifts that I have done have been for liposuction deformities. Liposuction of the banana roll of the buttocks almost always makes it worse if the roll is on the lower end of the buttocks as the ligaments are released and a worsened skin roll results. This creates the double crease to which you refer which is a skin problem created by the removal of fat volume. Buttock lifts remove the excessive skin roll and create a new and more tucked in buttock-posterior thigh demarcation. At the least it always removes the double crease and converts into a more normal and desireable single lower buttock crease.
