Buttock Reduction

The Basics

A Buttock Reduction is a surigcal procedure performed using Vaser Liposuction. It is an advanced method of removing excess fat from the buttock area to contour the body.

The Procedure

Vaser Liposuction uses an ultrasound probe to melt the fat and tighten the skin to deliver a smooth natural result and smaller buttock.

Post Surgery

Minimal discomfort for 2 – 5 days. Compression garment to be worn for 3 – 6 weeks post surgery.

The Results

Top Buttock Reduction Questions

What is Buttock Reduction Liposuction?

Butt Reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to reduce and reshape the size and form of one’s behind. Unlike a Brazilian Butt Lift (or Butt Enhancement), Buttock Reduction Liposuction focuses on removing fat cells from the buttock cheeks instead of injecting fat into the area. This can decrease the size of one’s large buttocks, can smooth the curvature of the bottom and can even lift the lower buttock region. Buttock Reduction Liposuction can create a beautifully balanced, symmetrical behind, can mimic the appearance of weight loss, and can even improve a person’s self-confidence.

The Procedure: What does it involve?

This form of liposuction procedure involves the use of a Vaser technology to gently and carefully remove fat from the bottom. On the day of your Buttock Reduction, you will be sedated via twilight sedation. Tiny incision will be made in the buttock area to allow the injection of numbing solution underneath the skin. This reduces the chances of feeling pain and it prepares the body for the next step. Following this infiltration, a small ultrasound probe is used to melt the fatty tissue in the buttocks. This probe’s ultrasound energy also assists in tightening the skin in that area. Afterwards, the melted fat is suctioned out of the buttocks to reveal a smaller, shapelier behind.

Which areas can be treated with Vaser Liposuction?

Having a well-proportioned behind is something many people desire; and although Butt Enhancements and Buttock Implants exist to created bigger bottoms, it is important to note that some patients desire something a little smaller. Therefore, Vaser Liposuction can be used to great effect when reducing the size of one’s behind. It can also be used to effectively treat other areas of the body (such as the flank and back, as well as the inner/outer thighs) to create beautiful shape to the mid-section and lower half of the body.

What can I expect after the procedure?

After your Buttock Reduction Liposuction, you will be required to wear a compression garment to aid the healing process, to help with skin retraction and to minimise swelling post-surgery. You can expect to feel slight discomfort in the treatment area, as well as some swelling and light bruising. These symptoms often occur post procedure, and you can expect to be back to performing normal activities at the 1-week mark.

Do the fat cells come back?

One of the main advantages of Vaser Liposuction is that your body is completely transformed due to the redistribution of fat cells around the body. During your lifetime, the number of fat cells you have remain constant despite one being large or thin. This means that post-adolescence, you do not grow additional fat cells within the body. Therefore, when fat cells are removed from the buttock area via Vaser Liposuction, it is very difficult to regain fat in this region. Should you gain weight post the surgery, heaviness will no longer be in your bottom, but distributed more evenly through the body.

What happens to the skin after a Buttock Reduction?

As with all Vaser Liposuction procedures, the heat and energy produced during the surgery aids to tighten the skin in and around the treatment area. The ultrasound energy stimulates the formation of new collagen fibres and encourages the skin to retract. This can give the area a buttock lift as well as a reduction in size.

Result. What and when can I expect them?

As with any Vaser Liposuction procedure offered at Cosmos Clinic, results can be seen 6 weeks post the operation. It is at this stage that a follow-up appointment is had to access your progress. During this time, photos are taken, medical advice can be given, and any further concerns post the operation can be addressed.

Are there any risks of complication?

With all surgical procedures, there are inherent risks and complications that could potentially arise pre, during and post cosmetic surgery. It is important that you are aware of the potential risks involved, and that you discuss any concerns with the operating surgeon before your procedure.
