Plastic Surgery’s Did You Know? Gender Differences in Buttock Aging


Did You KnowButtock reshaping through fat injections or implants has surged in popularity in the past decade. The vast majority of these buttock procedures, to the level of probably 99% of them, are done in women. There may be a lot of cultural and beauty standards for this gender bias but there may also be some age-related reasons as well. In a recent anthropometric study, the age-related changes of the gluteal region were analyzed in women and men from age 15 to 85 years old. Their study results showed that women’s buttocks aged more significantly and earlier with loss of fullness and sagging than in men. The female buttock appears to age faster and suffer more flattening and falling. Men may eventually develop a flat buttocks but it is not associated with much sagging. Such findings support the common plastic surgery procedures today, mainly for women, for buttock augmentation and lifts which either add or bring back the curves to the gluteal region.
