Flat Butt Treatments in Rockford, IL

Do you want to see volume and definition in your backside? Whether you naturally have a flat bottom or have noticed mass and fat start to reduce in the area, PryorHealth offers flat butt treatments Rockford residents can utilize to you achieve your desired results.

How Can I Correct a Flat Butt?

Since the appearance of a smooth backside is generally related to a lack of definition in the gluteus muscles, the best way to correct a flat butt is by activating them through exercise and movement. You can target the three muscles within the butt through exercises like brisk walking or stair climbing. A good rule is 10 minutes of activity for every hour you spend sitting. You can combine this with glute exercises, such as side-lying leg lifts and lunges, to strengthen and boost volume.

For many patients, however, this approach may not deliver the results they want, or simply does not fit into their lifestyle. If you’d rather opt for cosmetic enhancements to see a more dramatic improvement in your bottom’s shape or size, PryorHealth can help. We strive to provide the best flat butt treatments Rockford has to offer, including:

What Causes a Flat Butt?

The leading cause of a flat butt is typically genetics. Some people simply aren’t born with larger gluteal muscles and a predisposition to accumulating fat in this area. Those who have naturally small butts may also start to see a flat butt, which can be caused by different factors, including:

Lack of exercise.

A sedentary lifestyle can contribute to gluteal amnesia, which can cause your buttocks to forget how to activate the muscles, causing the area to flatten or sag.

Sitting for extended periods.

Being in a seated position forces the hip flexors to tighten and restricts blood flow to the muscles. This can cause them to fall asleep and lie dormant. If this occurs often, it can inflame the gluteal muscles so much that they cease to function normally. This is known as dormant butt syndrome and may lead to or occur alongside gluteal amnesia.

Disproportionate muscles.

When one muscle is strong, it must work harder to compensate for the weaker muscle. Weak glutes can cause hamstring injuries and hip, knee, and lower back pain. This is because the smaller muscles try to take over movements that they can’t handle.

Poor posture.

When you stand with your pelvis tucked in under your torso, it is known as the posterior pelvic tilt. This stance can eliminate the curve of your backside and lead to a flat butt appearance. It can also put the lower back under continuous strain and even lead to herniated discs.

Sleeping in the fetal position.

Curling up or sleeping on your side can force the glutes to stretch for hours, leading them to become weaker over time.
