Buttock Lift Treatment in Dubai
Following substantial amount of weight loss due to aging or weight reduction surgery, both skin and tissues may become less elastic and less conforming to the reduced body size. As a result, buttocks can sag and cause hanging pockets of unsupported skin. A buttock lift can improve the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin by removing excess sagging fat and skin, thereby adding contour to the waist, hips and back of the thighs. Butt lifts are also performed in conjunction with other age-defying procedures or as a part of a total body lift or a lower body lift.
