A shapely, toned and fit posterior is a very desirable physical attribute. Many patients seek treatment for this specific body area. To give the patient’s buttocks a desirable and proportionate shape, the plastic surgeon may recommend liposuction plastic surgery.
Other sites surrounding the rear may also have excessive fatty pockets. A comprehensive approach is particularly vital in treating this area. The surgeon can deliver dramatic buttock liposuction outcomes by thoroughly evaluating each area of the patient’s anatomy.
Liposuction is rarely ever done on the buttocks themselves. The surgeon will liposuction around the buttocks, namely the posterior, hips, outer thighs, and upper thigh areas (also called the banana roll) to develop an attractive butt shape.
It is vital for the patient seeking liposuction of the buttock area to choose a surgeon who understands how each region of the body interacts.
Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides liposuction body contouring to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding locations.
How Butt Liposuction is Performed
The surgeon will use a device called a cannula to undertake butt liposuction. A cannula is a narrow steel tube that the surgeon gently inserts into the fat layer of the butt.
They will delicately maneuver the cannula back and forth through the fat layer, ensuring that it stays perfectly parallel to the skin. This will break down the fat cells. These disintegrated fat cells will then be suctioned out of the body using the cannula.
Similar to every procedure he delivers, the surgeon undertakes his Beverly Hills buttock liposuction using tumescent liposuction. For this reason, the procedure will involve only local anesthesia. The patient is not unconscious during the procedure. This helps in quicker recovery and more dramatic outcomes compared to more invasive forms of liposuction.
Ideal candidates for butt liposuction plastic surgery will have a prominent and protuberant backside, which they want to decrease in size. Most patients have a fairly thick fat layer on the surface of their butt.
Buttock liposuction involves the surgeon eliminating this outer fat layer while simultaneously contouring it into an appealing, round shape with excellent muscle definition. The surgeon may also perform liposuction in the surrounding areas, such as the hips, flanks, and thighs if the patient’s body shape necessitates it.
The surgeon will assess various aspects during the entire procedure, such as the patient’s body proportions and skin elasticity. This will enable the patient to accomplish results that are not only cosmetically attractive but also entirely tailored to their needs.
Buttock Enhancement with Fat Transfer
Many patients are able to achieve their desired results with a buttock fat transfer procedure. A fat transfer is a special procedure that develops more volume in a particular body area.
Fat sourced from another body area is injected into the treatment site. The surgeon may choose a relatively simple approach when it comes to buttocks. This will involve eliminating excess fat from the lower butt through liposuction and injecting it into the upper buttock. This will help lift, tighten, and smooth the entire butt area.
This procedure provides the buttock with a more uniform, toned, and sculpted appearance. The fat transfer is performed as an outpatient procedure using only local anesthesia. Patients only experience negligible discomfort and minimal downtime. Plastic surgeons at VIPS and MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and nearby areas for liposuction body sculpting.
