There are ways to change the size, shape and proportions of your buttocks. With a Brazilian Butt Lift we combine liposuction of some areas while adding it in others. By doing this, we are able to accomplish a change in the entire appearance by changing the overall proportions and fat distribution. This will improve the flatness and length issue you refer to. Raising the gluteal folds (lower portion of your buttocks) requires a long incision and suturing techniques down to the muscle to be able to recreate the fold again. This is associated with low patient satisfaction as you are left with a big scar in a very uncomfortable area. Reports in our plastic surgery scientific literature have identify fold flatness and scar-related problems as common complications in surgeries where the natural gluteal fold is incised. I truly believe that by altering your overall PROPORTIONS AND FAT DISTRIBUTION with a smart combination of liposuction of certain areas (including hips, lower back and thighs) with fat grafting of others, the length and flatness that bothers you will be much improved. We can always see you and analyze your concerns together. Will help you visualize these potential changes. Its really impressive how much different (full and round) you can make your buttocks with this technique.

answer without seeing you and examining your areas of concern, but in
general it is possible to make a "shorter" butt. Longer butts usually look
that way because of the lack of transition from the lower back to the
buttock area. By performing liposuction in the lower back and flanks, I
improve that transition point and there is more of a shelf in the upper
buttocks. This generally leads to a more round and less stretched out
As far as lifting your lower buttocks to lengthen your thighs and shorten
your butt, this is a little different. There is a zone of adherence where
your skin is attached to the deeper layers of your tissue in the crease
under your buttocks. If this area is liposuctioned, you will lose that
adherence and the entire buttock will drop and will not look very good at
all, so I'd recommend staying away from doing that.
I hope this helped, and if you have any further questions please don't
hesitate to email me or give my office a call.

Yes, most definitely, we can shorten what appears to be a long buttock. This will be done by a combination of liposuction and fat grafting. Grafting fat into the buttock will improve the shape and shorten the apparent length of the buttocks.
