A well-shaped, toned, and fit derriere is quite a desirable attribute. Many patients seek treatment for this particular area. The surgeon may recommend liposuction cosmetic surgery for the buttocks to give the patient’s rear a desirable and proportionate shape.
Other areas surrounding the rear may also have excessive fat deposits. Therefore, a comprehensive approach is especially important in the treatment of this area. The surgeon can deliver excellent butt liposuction outcomes by thoroughly assessing each part of the patient’s anatomy.
The buttocks themselves rarely, if ever, undergo liposuction. The surgeon will conduct liposuction around the butt, namely the outer thighs, posterior, hips, and upper thigh areas (also known as the banana roll) to create a desirable butt shape.
It is important for patients considering liposuction of the rear area to identify a surgeon who understands how each area of the body interacts. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides liposuction of the buttocks to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities.
How Butt Liposuction is Performed
The surgeon will use a device known as a cannula to perform buttock liposuction. A cannula is a thin steel tube that the surgeon delicately inserts into the fat layer of the buttocks.
They will gently move the cannula back and forth through the layer of fat while ensuring that it remains perfectly parallel to the skin. This will disintegrate the fat cells, which will then be suctioned out of the body through the cannula.
The surgeon performs his Beverly Hills buttock liposuction using tumescent liposuction, similar to every procedure he delivers. Due to this, the entire procedure involves only local anesthesia. The patient is not knocked out, and this helps in faster healing and more dramatic results than more invasive types of liposuction.
Decent candidates for buttock liposuction cosmetic surgery have a large, protruding rear side, which they seek to reduce in size. A majority of such patients have a fairly thick layer of fat on the surface of their buttock.
In buttock liposuction, the surgeon removes this outer layer of fat while simultaneously sculpting it into a desirable, round shape with excellent muscle definition. If the patient’s physique necessitates it, he may also perform liposuction in the surrounding sites, such as the flanks, hips, and thighs.
The surgeon will evaluate various factors during the entire procedure, such as the patient’s skin elasticity and their body proportions. This will help the patient achieve outcomes that are not only aesthetically appealing but also entirely unique to them.
Buttock Enhancement with Fat Transfer
Many patients are able to attain desired outcomes with a buttock fat transfer procedure. A fat transfer refers to a special procedure that creates more volume in a specific area of the body.
Fat taken from another area of the body is injected into the treatment area. When it comes to buttocks, the surgeon may determine a relatively simple approach. This involves removing excess fat from the lower buttock through liposuction and injecting it to the upper buttock. In this manner, the entire butt is tightened, lifted, and smoothed.
This offers the butt a more toned, even, and fit appearance. Fat transfer is undertaken as an outpatient procedure using only local anesthetic. Patients experience minimal downtime and negligible discomfort.
