A droopy or saggy butt is generally the result of excess fat and poor muscle tone in the buttocks. Weak butt muscles can cause the butt to sag by weighing it down rather than giving it a more round and defined shape. In addition, fat between the muscles and the skin can contribute to floppy, low-hanging tissue that further detracts from the buttocks’ appearance. The butt cheeks may hang down and blend with the back of the thighs, and they may even obscure the gluteal fold. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways that the backside can be improved to achieve a more uplifted, shapely butt.*
The muscles in the butt, known as the gluteus maximus or simply “the glutes,” can be strengthened to lift and contour the butt.* Performing the following exercises is the easiest way to strengthen and tone the glutes.* To gain noticeable improvement in your derrière, incorporate three to four sets of a minimum of 10 to 15 repetitions of these exercises into your routine at least three times per week.* For continued improvement, aim to do a few more repetitions of each exercise or add weights as you progress.*
This exercise is a great warm up to heat and loosen the body while working your butt and abs. Here’s how to do the glute bridge.*
The quintessential exercise for toning the butt, squats target all muscles in the lower body, especially the quadriceps and glutes.* For help with your squat technique and some variations, here’s how to do the perfect squat.
Butt Enhancement Procedures*
The Brazilian Butt Lift*
This increasingly popular procedure provides a rear end that looks and feels very natural. Dr. Mendieta performs Brazilian Butt Lift surgery using his signature fat grafting technique: liposuction is used to remove unwanted excess fat from a particular area, and then the fat is strategically injected to add volume, enhance the shape, and lift the butt to a higher position.*
Butt Augmentation With Implants*
Buttock implant surgery reshapes and augments the butt using a solid silicone implant that cannot break or leak. This procedure is ideal for patients who are thin and do not have enough body fat for fat transfer.*
