Thong Lift Austin

A thong lift is a great option for patients who want to enhance the overall shape and appearance of their buttocks. Dr. Johnny Franco offers the thong lift procedure for patients in Austin with a saggy or flabby butt who want to feel more confident about their appearance.

What Is a Thong Lift?

Thong lift is a cosmetic procedure where the shape of the buttock is enhanced. The procedure not only lifts the buttock it improves the overall shape of the area. Similar to breast enhancement surgery the butt can fall for any numerous of reasons that range from patients losing weight to aging. The Thong Lift is a procedure that can be used to lift the skin and remove excess skin from the inferior portion of the buttock. The Thong Lift can be done alone or in combination with a fat transfer procedure.

How is the Thong Lift Unique from Traditional Butt Lift Surgeries?

The Thong Lift is designed to lift the buttock in a vertical direction that hides the incision in the buttock. This avoids the large horizontal scar that traditional butt lift procedures can place on patients. It also does not flatten the butt in the same manor that traditional butt lifts do as it rotates and lifts the butt to give patients a more youthful, perky appearance to their butt.
