How Can I Fix My Lower Buttock Sagging?

Q: Dr. Eppley, My lower glutes sag & have about1-2 inches if not more of saggy loose skin that just hangs. I think I need lower glute skin removal.

A: I can certainly see the infragluteal fold overhang and agree that the only improvement will come by excision. My concern would be the heavy volume of buttock tissue above it and its potential adverse impact on incisional healing and the risk of postoperative wound dehiscence. (in an area which is already stressed in that regard because of sitting) The vast majority of patients that undergo lower buttock tucks/lifts have much smaller buttock sizes/weights above it. I am not saying it can’t be done but that potential complication in you is higher.
