Liposuction may be appropriate for any area where there is excess fatty tissue. Evaluation by a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery will provide an expert opinion about the risks, benefits and alternative treatment of this and other areas to improve your appearance.

Liposuction, the suction assisted removal of fat, can be done ANYWHERE there is fat. However, Liposuction is commonly done to sculpt and contour in areas of fat EXCESS to remove the extra fat leaving a more sexy you behind.

The buttocks is one of the most common areas to lipo in the body. However, the key to giving patients their perfect butt comes from using the buttocks assessment tool to accurately determine a patients ideal butt. VASER HD Liposuction is the gold standard in buttocks contouring. A Skype or Facetime consultation with a VASER Brazilian Buttocks Lift specialist is recommended to answer any additional questions you may have. Good Luck!

Liposuction can be performed on the buttocks. Results will depend upon how much fat is removed as well as the presurgical tone of the skin. Removing too much fat may leave a patient with skin relaxation that creates a new cosmetic problem.
