Liposuction is the best way to slim a butt that’s accompanied by unwanted saddlebags, if you’re in good health and have fairly elastic skin. However, if you’re inclined to gaining weight in your buttocks, and you gain weight after surgery, you do run the risk of ending up back at your original starting place. During the procedure, which is performed under anesthesia, a small incision is made in the crease of the butt that will be barely visible once you’re healed. Using a cannula, fat is suctioned out of the butt. Another technique commonly used when liposuction is performed on the buttocks is ultrasound-assisted liposuction, which uses days to a week, but you should be able to return to your normal activities in about two weeks.
If the size of your butt bothers you and it’s laden with cellulite, make sure you discuss your goals and expectations with your plastic surgeon. “In some cases, liposuction can make cellulite worse, or do nothing to improve it at all. It’s very important to be clear about your goals and set realistic expectations during your consultation with your surgeon,” explains Orlando, FL, plastic surgeon Armando Soto, MD.
