Many people desire to have rounded, fit and toned buttocks. A comprehensive approach is used to carry on this liposuction procedure to give patients a perfect shape and proportion.

Overview and benefits

There are very few patients who actually undergo direct butt liposuction. The doctors usually address surrounding areas like hips, outer thighs and rear thighs. The buttocks are framed well and patients are asked to exercise. When a doctor treats butts, he/she also looks to bring about balance the other areas such as flanks, hips, buttocks, outer thighs, anterior and posterior thighs. A person should go to a certified doctor and an accredited clinic for this procedure.


A thin steel tube called cannula is used to perform buttock liposuction. It is inserted into the fat layer of the butt. It is then moved to and fro while keeping it parallel to the skin in order to break the fat cells which are then sucked out through the cannula. Minimally invasive tumescent liposuction is used. A patient is not knocked out and the recovery time is quick. A person with large buttocks is an ideal candidate. Most of these patients have a thick fat layer on their butts. During liposuction, this fat layer is eliminated and the buttocks are sculpted to give it a toned and round shape. Depending on the physique of the patients, liposuction of surrounding areas like thighs and hips may also be performed. Other factors such as skin elasticity and body proportions are considered.
