A new technique for correction of a buttock ptosis resulting from a degloving injury is presented. With this technique, the deepithelialized crescent-like zone in lateral thigh redundancy anchored to gluteal fascia through three separate incisions as used for creation of a new gluteal crease. The patient’s satisfaction was good with long-term follow-up evaluation. Infragluteal fold reconstruction is achieved by reconstruction of the buttock’s sustaining apparel through deepithelialized skin flaps anchored to deep gluteal fascia.
