With age, the buttocks have a square outline and become flat. They collapse due to loose skin and a decrease in the muscle of the gluteus maximus. Nowadays, however, the modern beauty canons are promoting bouncy, firm and curved buttocks. It is not rare for some women to prefer to undergo liposuction in order to have well reshaped buttocks.
Buttocks liposuction. What is it?
Liposuction of the buttocks is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat in the buttocks. This technique helps you to permanently suck the fat cell clusters with a foam cannula attached to the vacuum system or a syringe in case the surgeon performs a soft liposuction.
However, when the practitioner performs liposuction of the buttocks, they must be careful not to disrupt the harmony of your silhouette. They must preserve the balance of your body so that they can perform a liposuction of the hips, the lower back or the back of the thighs.
Buttocks liposuction: how the procedure works
Before the procedure
An initial consultation with your surgeon will take place before liposuction of your buttocks. It helps the surgeon to know your background and to make a full evaluation of your silhouette and the shape of your buttocks. This consultation helps them to avoid any contraindications for liposuction of the buttocks.
On the day of surgery, the surgeon performs liposuction of the buttocks in several stages:
- The surgeon starts by marking the region of the operation with a surgical marker. After disinfecting the buttocks area, continue with the injection of a solution to liquefy the fat cells.
- Then make hidden incisions in the fold of the buttocks and insert a foam cannula with a rounded and perforated tip. Then, with back and forth motions, the fat is absorbed (sucked) moderately. This helps the surgeon to prevent waves effect or flat buttocks.
- As soon as the fat deposits are sucked, the doctor closes the incisions and places a dressing on the scars.
Buttocks liposuction: anaesthesia, duration, hospitalisation
Liposuction of the buttocks lasts between one and two hours and is performed under local or general anaesthesia depending on the amount of fat to be sucked and the areas to be treated. Selecting the kind of anaesthesia is done by the surgeon and anaesthesiologist together.
Hospitalization is not necessarily needed so that the patient can return home on the same day, but sometimes a night at the clinic is needed.
Results: Reshaping the appearance of your buttocks
In women, the buttocks are rounder and less sagging, while in men, the buttocks are narrower and flatter. The result is final after three to six months, when the skin is adapted to the new volume of the buttocks.
