With age, the buttocks take a square shape and become flat. They collapse due to loose skin and a fall of the gluteus maximus muscle. However today, the new beauty canons advocate bouncy, firm and curved buttocks. It is not uncommon that some women choose to undergo liposuction to have well reshaped buttocks.
Buttocks liposuction. What is it?
Liposuction of the buttocks is a cosmetic surgery procedure that eliminates excess fat in the buttocks. This procedure allows you to permanently suck the fat cell clusters with a foam cannula connected to an aspiratory system, or a syringe in case your surgeon performs a soft liposuction.
However, when your practitioner performs liposuction of the buttocks, they must be careful not to impact the harmony of your silhouette. They must then maintain the balance of your body so they may perform a liposuction of the hips, lower back or the back of the thighs.
Buttocks liposuction: how the procedure works
Before the procedure
An initial consultation with your surgeon will be done before a buttocks liposuction. It allows the surgeon to know your background and make a complete assessment of your silhouette and the appearance of your buttocks. This consultation allows them to eliminate any contraindications for buttocks liposuction.
On the day of surgery, the surgeon performs the buttocks liposuction according to several stages:
- The surgeon begins by defining the area of the procedure with a surgical marker. Then, after disinfecting the buttocks area, proceeds to inject a solution to liquefy the fat cells.
- Then creates hidden incisions in the fold of the buttocks and inserts a foam cannula with rounded and perforated tip. Then, using back and forth movements, the fat is absorbed (sucked) moderately. This allows the surgeon to avoid the effect of waves or flat buttocks.
- Once the fat deposits are sucked, the practitioner closes the incisions and covers your scars with a dressing.
Buttocks liposuction: anaesthesia, duration, hospitalisation
Liposuction of the buttocks lasts between one and two hours and is done under local or general anaesthesia depending on the amount of fat to be sucked and areas to be treated. The choice of the type of anaesthesia is done in by your surgeon and anaesthesiologist together.
Hospitalization is not always necessary so the patient can come home the same day, but sometimes a night at the clinic is necessary.
Results: Reshaping the appearance of your buttocks
In women, the buttocks are rounder and less sagging while in men, the buttocks are narrower and flat. The result is definitive after three to six months when the skin is adapted to the new volume of the buttocks.
