    WHAT DOES BUTTOCK REDUCTION SURGERY INVOLVE

    Considering the Procedure

    Who is a good candidate for buttock reduction liposuction?

    Having multiple consultations including with the Cosmos Aesthetics doctor performing your surgery are essential to assess your suitability for the procedure, discuss your result goals, and guide you on the best approach to achieve your desired outcome.

    • Realistic Expectations: It’s essential for patients to have realistic expectations about the results they can achieve with Vaser Lipo.
    • Good Physical and Mental Health: Candidates should be in both good physical health and mental health. Emotionally stable with no pre-existing health concerns.
    • Stable Body Weight: Ideal candidates are at or near their target weight. Vaser Lipo is not a weight loss procedure but rather a body contouring method. It’s best suited for individuals who have stubborn fat pockets that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
    • Good Skin Elasticity: The skin should have a reasonable amount of elasticity. After the removal of fat, the skin needs to retract to achieve a smooth contour. Those with poor skin elasticity might experience sagging or excess loose skin after the procedure.
    • Non-Smoker: Smoking can impair the healing process and increase the risk of complications. If you’re a smoker, you’ll need to cease smoking before having surgery and throughout the recovery period.
    • Informed Decision: Candidates should be fully informed about the procedure, potential risks, benefits, and recovery process. All patients are required to have two initial consultations, a minimum of seven days apart, a mandatory minimum seven day cooling off period following the second consultation, along with a referral from a GP.

    Not all patients wanting to have Vaser Lipo on their buttock region are suitable candidates. If applicable, some individuals may be referred to a plastic surgeon to discuss plastic surgery procedure options including a buttock lift or a lower body lift.

    How much does buttock reduction surgery cost?

    At Cosmos Aesthetics there isn’t a universal cosmetic surgery pricing structure, the cost of a liposuction procedure is individualised, reflecting each person’s unique needs and circumstances. Buttock reduction surgery with Vaser Lipo starts from a minimum base price of $5,500 for the first area, with additional areas available, starting from a minimum starting price of $2,000 per area. These prices are indicative and not definitive, all pricing is to be used as a guide only, and are not exact quotes.

    During your consultations, the doctor will provide you with a detailed, personalised cost breakdown, inclusive of all associated fees such as IV sedation, compression garments, and any applicable hospital or facility charges, ensuring clarity and transparency in pricing.

    THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT BUTT REDUCTION

    Understanding the Procedure

    What happens during buttock liposuction surgery?

    When undergoing buttock reduction liposuction surgery, the doctor creates small incisions, introducing a specialised ultrasound probe through these incisions to reach the designated fat pockets.

    Vaser Lipo employs ultrasound technology that generates heat to fragment and liquefy undesired fat cells in the targeted areas. After the disruption of fat deposits in each designated area, the liquefied fat cells are then extracted from the body through the same small incisions using a cannula.

    Buttock reduction surgery is performed with a local anaesthetic numbing solution in each targeted area, combined with IV sedation, either twilight anaesthesia or general anaesthetic, depending on the individual needs of each patient.

    How long does surgery for butt reduction take?

    Vaser Lipo is a cosmetic surgery procedure that may range in time duration from between one to four hours. The exact length of the surgery depends on how much fat is being removed, how many areas are being treated, and the specific needs of each patient.

    What is the downtime after having buttock liposuction?

    To facilitate healing, reduce swelling, and encourage skin retraction, it is mandatory to wear compression garments for at least six weeks post-surgery: three weeks full-time and three weeks part-time. Adherence to the provided aftercare instructions and daily self-massage of the treated areas throughout the recovery period are also imperative. Regular in-clinic follow up appointments will be scheduled during the recovery period to monitor and assist you in your healing journey.

    What is the recovery period needed after butt reduction surgery?

    After undergoing butt reduction with Vaser Lipo, patients are able to go home on the same day as they have their procedure. Downtime after Vaser Liposuction must always be considered, as the body heals and recovers from the procedure, including but not limited to:

    • Swelling and Bruising: It’s common to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. These symptoms typically peak within the first 48 hours and gradually subside over the next few weeks.
    • Compression Garments: Patients wear compression garments for a minimum of six weeks after surgery. These garments help reduce swelling, support the healing tissues, and help the skin conform to its new contours.
    • Downtime: Most patients are able to resume light normal activities after one week. However, strenuous activities and intense physical exercise should be avoided for six weeks and re-introduced slowly. This is just a guide, and the anticipated downtime for each individual is discussed during the consultations with the doctor.
    • Sitting: Since the buttocks area has been treated, patients might be advised to avoid prolonged sitting for a week or so after surgery. Using a soft cushion or modified sitting positions can help reduce pressure on the treated area.
    • Follow Up Appointments: It’s essential to attend all scheduled post-operative check-ups so the surgeon can monitor the healing process and address any concerns.
    • Final Results: Whilst some results can be seen immediately after the swelling subsides, the final results and appearance of the buttocks will become evident over the next few months as the body continues to heal and adjust.

    It’s crucial to follow the post-operative aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and results. Individual recovery timelines can vary based on the amount of excess fat being removed, the number of areas treated, and the individual healing rates of each patient.

    How long does it take to see the results from surgery?

    Approximately six weeks post-procedure, the final result outcomes will start to be more discernible. It’s essential for all patients to understand that the final results of Vaser Lipo can take up to six months or more to become completely visible.

    Are there any side effects from having buttock liposuction?

    Like all invasive procedures, butt reduction liposculpture comes with potential risks, side effects, and complications, of which some can be serious. The possible side effects associated with Vaser Lipo to the buttock region may include, but are not limited to:

    • Risk of infections, blood clots, or skin burns.
    • Pain and aching.
    • Bruising and bleeding.
    • Persistent swelling.
    • Seroma/fluid accumulation under the skin.
    • Asymmetry or an uneven appearance.
    • Scars that remain noticeable.
    • Skin irregularities, fibrosis, scar tissue.
    • Loose skin.
    • Numbness and changes in skin sensation.
    • Unsatisfactory results.
    • The potential need for further procedures.

    What if I want to make my buttocks larger using a surgical option?

    For buttock enhancement, a fat transfer to the buttocks also called a Brazilian Butt Lift, is a Vaser Lipo combined with fat transfer surgical procedure available at Cosmos Aesthetics to enlarge the size of the buttocks.

    What if I want to make my buttocks larger using a non-surgical option?

    For patients wanting to increase the size of their buttocks without having a surgical procedure, a Non-Surgical Butt Lift using dermal filler injectables is a non-invasive buttock enlargement treatment option available at Cosmos Aesthetics.

    What other areas of the body are suitable for surgery?

    For suitable candidates, Vaser Lipo can also be performed on other areas of the body including the stomach, lower back, upper back, inner thighs, outer thighs, and the chin/neck.
