Am I a good candidate for excisional back lipectomy?

You may be a good candidate for buttock lifting if you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • excess or sagging back and upper buttock skin

  • a butt that protrudes and is out of proportion to the rest of your body

  • back muscles that have been separated and weakened

  • excess fatty tissue that is concentrated in your lower back and upper buttock skin

If you plan to become pregnant or lose weight in the future, you should discuss this with your plastic surgeon. Scarring from previous back surgery may limit the results of your buttock lift.
