Buttocks and hip liposuction are among the most requested body shaping procedures among women in NYC and other cities across the U.S. Laser liposuction is minimally-invasive and an ideal option to get rid of stubborn fat deposits that are hard to eliminate with just diet and exercise. Its targeted fat reduction capability allows removal of fat from even delicate and hard to treat areas.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) carried a report on whether butt and hip lipo could deliver the “idealized feminine silhouette”. The article says that, according to California Surgical Institute website, lipolysis is not about removing the optimal amount of fat but about how much fat is left after surgery to ensure that the natural contours of the body are preserved.
The idea is that removal of too much fat can destroy the natural contours of the body and also lead to skin irregularities. Of course, the amount of fat to be removed is usually determined by the patient’s goals on post-operative size. However, a more significant concern is skin elasticity or the ability of the skin to re-drape to the new contour, which will determine the final outcome. Poor skin elasticity can cause worse problems such as visible and/or palpable rippling and sagging.
That’s why liposuction of hips and buttocks is not always removing the excess fat but just the right amount of fat and leaving behind enough fatty tissues. The goal is to preserve the natural contours of the body and maintain a smooth skin surface.
The excess fat in the upper-outer buttock could make it flatter and wider. Liposuction could offer much more than what silicone implants or Brazilian butt lift (fat transfer) can offer in such cases. Liposuction of hips typically involves reshaping the flanks to create a smoother, more natural transition. The idea is to get rid of the fat rolls so the butt area appears more voluptuous.
Skilled liposuction surgeons in Manhattan, NYC who are experts in buttock enhancement procedures understand the need for adjusting fat removal to provide attractive outcomes.
