How Is Your Butt Aging?
By NewBeauty Editors |
The butt is comprised of skin, fat and other tissue, and it ages similarly to how the face ages. Fat naturally atrophies and the skin becomes loose, causing underlying structures to lose their support and making the butt begin to head (farther) south. Below we break down the changes that occur.
-Since the skin on the buttocks is rarely exposed to the sun, it's usually pale and in pretty good shape. But if there's been major weight gain or loss, it can be quite slack. The skin on the butt can also become crepey as collagen and elastin break down.
-As we age, it's common for fat to get stored in the butt and the areas around it, like the thighs, hips and saddlebags.
-A host of factors cause the butt to sag, like fat loss or excess fat, loss of elasticity and the aging process itself.
-Cellulite can affect a butt of any age, but as the skin and fat begin to change, cellulite becomes more apparent. Even if you didn't have cellulite on your butt when you were younger, there's a relatively high chance of it occurring later in life.
-In a young, perky butt, the crease (the line that extends outward from right under the butt) is short, but as projection changes and the butt begins to droop, the crease line becomes longer.
