After a buttock lift will your buttocks be loose and jiggly?
I have lost the muscle tone in my buttocks and it's jiggly. I want to know if a buttock lift will tighten the muscles to address this issue?

Brazilian Butt fill will make your buttocks fuller and higher, that's the purpose of the procedure.

Jiggly Butt  June 15, 2011 7:48 PM

The Brazilian Butt lift will make your buttocks more full, and more firm. It will most likely be relatively hard for the first few weeks, then over the next month or two it will soften back to a 100% natural feel. If it is currently "Jiggly" because you don't have enough volume to fill out your skin, then it will be more firm once the procedure is done.

To answer the question, BBL DOESNOT effect the muscle.Fat only fills the deficiency, it does not tighten.

The addition of fat will take up the loose volume that you are likely currently seeing. I have never in well over 150 cases seen a "jiggly" result occur from fat transfer. If you loose a lot of weight, you can expect some diminution of the fat in your buttocks, but I would not expect any "jiggliness" other than that which occurs in any tissue naturally. Once you do your transplant, you can always engage in an exercise regimen that tones and shapes your gluteus muscles for an even better appearance.

Kind regards,
