Our genes determine the basic form of our buttocks. Some are round and perky, some are somewhat thin and flat, some are large, some small, some buxom and others flabby. However weight gain and loss also affect the shape and size.
Cosmetic surgery — known as a gluteal lift — can help us improve the shape, although it doesn’t make the buttocks larger. Essentially, the lift tightens the underlying tissue and removes excess skin and fat. It may also be combined with a tummy tuck or a lower body lift.
