At OHSU, our plastic surgeons perform successful lifts to remove excess skin and fat that cause a drooping backside. The procedure improves body shape by contouring the waist, hips and back of the thighs for a shapelier and trimmer appearance.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision along the lower back, from hip to hip. Excess skin below the incision is pulled up, which lifts the buttocks and outer thighs. Extra skin is then removed from the area. Often, this procedure will include liposuction to eliminate extra fat.
