The increased phenomenon in severe weight loss has increased the demand for body contouring. This has extended to buttock contouring. Weight loss often produces flat buttock deformities which pushes the need for buttock enhancement surgery.
It is important to realise that the buttock reshaping surgery must address the whole back, flanks, hip and thigh as one unit. In this way, it can be thought of as a back, buttock and thigh remodelling procedure.
No procedure should be carried out on the buttock area or the posterior contour without a full assessment and complete understanding of its complexity. Patients seeking treatment should be made aware about the potential risk factors associated with any surgical procedure.
Plan Your Posterior Recontouring Surgery
It is fundamental to understand the differences between the female and male buttocks. A woman’s buttock is characterized by curvy lines, round volumes and prominent projection, while a man’s buttock is characterized by straight lines, square volumes and side depressions. Sagginess of the buttock should not be present, nor full gluteal crease which may indicate early ptosis.
If there is any fatty fullness under the crease (also known as banana deformity), cellulite, contour irregularity or saddle-bags present, these must also be addressed. Buttock contouring surgery should address the above points to produce desirable results that match the patient’s expectations.
There are different techniques that suit the desires of different patients.
Candidates for buttock recontouring procedures are those who experience:
- Flattened buttocks (developmental or post weight loss)
- Small buttocks
- Saggy buttocks
- Disproportionate buttocks.
- Large buttocks and thighs
- Large flanks
- No waist definition

You will require a simple compression dressing on the back area for a week. You will also require pain killers and antibiotics during this period. A follow up appointment will be arranged for removal of the dressings and wound check. The sutures are dissolvable and therefore do not need to be removed.
Back to work and normal activities
You encourage you to commence walking immediately after surgery. You will need to take it lightly for the first 24-48 hours. Back to light duties in 1-week time.
Back to normal activities in 2-4 weeks’ time.
