The buttocks are a major problem area for most women where fat tends to build up. Pregnancy, aging, hormonal imbalances, obesity and slow metabolism are factors that causes deposition of fat in this area. Even strenuous diets and exercise don’t seem to work when it comes to reducing fat in the buttock area. Fortunately, buttocks liposuction in Manhattan is an ideal solution for the concern. Performed using the minimally-invasive FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation, the treatment involves using laser energy to remove excess fat, tighten the skin, and reshape the area to provide the trim, streamlined shape women desire.
Though conventional liposuction surgery can remove unwanted fat from various areas of the body, the procedure is invasive, and requires general anesthesia and long recovery time. Further, it does not provide any skin tightening benefits, and there is an increased possibility of dimpling or sagging after the procedure – especially in older patients with less skin elasticity. Smartlipo buttock liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that removes unwanted fat easily and also tightens the skin effectively. Other benefits of buttocks liposuction in Manhattan include:
- Minimally-invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia
- Provides high-definition sculpting and superior skin tightening effects
- Encourages the production of collagen
- Short treatment time
- Minimal downtime
- Reduced risk of complications
- Less bleeding and bruising
- Minimal pain and discomfort
- Quick, smooth recovery
The Smartlipo workstation utilizes laser energy to dissolve the fat, which allows it to be easily suctioned off. For effective fat reduction, the technique blends the power of three laser wavelengths -1064 nm, 1320 nm and 1440 nm. The intelligent delivery systems of the Smartlipo Triplex device – ThermaGuide, SmartSense and ThermaView – are designed to regulate energy delivery and prevent risks of overtreatment. By allowing the plastic surgeon to precisely target the treatment site, the technology minimizes damage to surrounding tissues.
The procedure starts with the surgeon administering local anesthesia at the treatment site. Once the area is numb, a tiny incision is made in or near the buttock crease. The small laser-enabled cannula is inserted through this tiny incision in the skin and the laser energy melts the excess fat, preparing it for quick and painless extraction, while leaving the surrounding structures unaffected. Along with fat reduction, laser lipolysis also coagulates the tissues and tightens the skin.
Women planning to undergo laser liposuction on the buttocks need to fulfill the following criteria:
- Have an out-of-proportion buttock area
- Have firm, elastic skin
- Be healthy with no serious medical conditions
- Be psychologically stable
- Have realistic expectations about the outcomes
Experts may recommend liposuction of the hips and inner and outer thighs to optimize outcomes.
Though the procedure is minimally-invasive, the recovery period for the procedure varies based on individual considerations and the amount of fat removed. While some patients recover quickly within a week, it may take up to three months for others. Keeping follow-up appointments is important for proper healing.
