Medial Buttock Aesthetics


Medial buttock aesthetics have not been discussed to date. The medial buttock has definite differences between male and female patients. The most important consideration for the medial buttock aesthetics is appreciating what looks more feminine versus masculine. Body parts that are feminine tend to look rounded and full centrally, much like a hill. In contrast, body parts that look masculine tend to look flat and bold along the borders, much like a plateau. These gender-specific features can be translated to the medial buttocks aesthetics.

The male medial buttocks region needs to be squared off along its borders and be bold. The upper medial buttocks and lower medial buttock can be grafted to masculinize the male buttocks. The upper medial buttock will create a pillar and the lower medial buttock will give the buttock the double “L” squared-off look. In summary, bold medial buttock lines can be created that are more squared in appearance with straight-line perimeter [].

The female medial buttock region needs to be rounded in appearance. This requires feathering the medial buttocks over the upper medial region so that the peak of the hill is located along the central buttock cheek with the medial buttock being down sloped. This look can be achieved using light liposuction in the area. Additionally, the medial lower buttock should be round as depicted by the creation of a “J” appearance. In summary, a rounded appearance in the female is required to create a more feminine appearance.

In conclusion, medial buttock aesthetics is dictated by gender differences. Gender differences of the female buttock include creating central fullness and a rounded perimeter. This is in contrast to the male buttock which requires a central buttock flatness and linear or squared appearance of the perimeter.
