A toned, shapely, and fit rear is an attribute that is desirable to most people. For people seeking a desirable and proportionate backside, liposuction plastic surgery may offer an effective solution.
There may be excessive fatty deposits in other areas around the buttocks. A targeted approach is especially important to treat this site. By thoroughly assessing each region of the patient’s anatomy, the surgeon can deliver dramatic buttock liposuction results.
Only in rare circumstances is liposuction ever performed on the buttocks themselves. The surgeon will liposuction around the buttocks, specifically around the hips as well as the outer and upper thigh areas (also known as banana roll), to develop an appealing buttock shape.
For patients considering liposuction of the butt area, it is crucial to work with a surgeon who has a deep understanding of how each area of the body interacts.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides liposuction body sculpting to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
How Butt Liposuction is Performed
In buttock liposuction, the surgeon uses a device known as a cannula. A cannula refers to a thin steel tube that the surgeon will gently insert into the fat layer of the buttock.
After this, they will gently maneuver the cannula in a back and forth fashion through the fat layer. They will make sure that the cannula remains completely parallel to the skin. This will disintegrate the fat cells, which will then be suctioned out of the body through the cannula.
The tumescent liposuction technique will be used to perform buttock liposuction. This technique only warrants the use of local anesthesia. The patient will remain awake during the procedure as well as enjoy a faster recovery and more dramatic results compared to more invasive types of liposuction.
Good buttocks liposuction candidates have a prominent, protruding rear, which they seek to reduce in size. Most patients also have a reasonably thick layer of fat on the surface of their buttock.
In butt liposuction, the surgeon eliminates this outer layer of fat while at the same time sculpting it into an attractive, round shape with well-defined muscles. They may also perform liposuction in surrounding sites, such as the thighs, hips, and flanks, depending on the patient’s anatomical needs.
The surgeon will evaluate various facets during the procedure, such as the patient’s skin elasticity and anatomical proportions. This allows the patient to achieve outcomes that are cosmetically appealing as well as customized to their unique needs.
Buttock Enhancement with Fat Transfer
Buttock fat transfer plastic surgery allows many patients to achieve their desired outcomes. This is a special procedure that creates more volume in specific body areas.
Fat taken from another area of the body is injected into the treatment area. The surgeon may choose a relatively straightforward approach to improve the shape of the buttocks. This involves removing excess fat from the lower buttock area through liposuction and injecting it into the upper buttock. This process lifts, tightens, and smooths out the entire buttock area.
This procedure offers the buttock with a more consistent, toned, and contoured appearance. The fat transfer is undertaken as an outpatient procedure using only local anesthetic, and patients experience only minimal downtime and negligible discomfort.
