The buttocks are an important area of the human body. It is composed of fat, tissue, muscles, and skin. Most cases of overly developed buttocks occur as a result of the over-accumulation of fat in the buttocks. The buttock reduction surgery is an effective and reliable procedure to decrease the size of the buttocks by removing the excess fat. The surgery is normally performed under general anesthesia in association with tumescent anesthesia. General anesthesia or IV sedation can also be used for patients who want to remain fully asleep throughout the procedure. The surgery starts with the placing of the incision on the buttock. In the second step, liposuction is performed on the butt to remove the excess fat. Liposuction involves the insertion of a cannula inside the butt through the incision. Before inserting the cannula into the target area, a tumescent solution is injected into the region. This solution helps constrict bleeding and makes the process comfortable for the patient. The cannula is a hollow tube that is connected to a liposuction pump or a special syringe. After inserting the cannula into the target area, the cannula is moved back and forth under the traditional method to release the fat cells from the tissues. Next, the dislodged fat is suctioned out from the area with the help of the suction pump or the syringe. The same process is repeated on the other butt until both buttocks are reduced and contoured. Latest versions of liposuction technologies have revolutionized buttock reduction surgery. For example, if laser-assisted or ultrasound-assisted liposuction is used, there will be no need to dislodge the fat cells from the surrounding tissue manually. Instead, these technologies use ultrasound rays or laser technology to melt the fat inside the buttocks before suctioning it out. In most cases, especially if your skin quality is not good, liposuction alone will reduce your butt but leave you with saggy buttocks. Removal of the fat from the buttocks has the tendency to make the buttocks loose and hanging. In order to treat the saggy butt, the excess skin will have to be removed. This can be performed only under general anesthesia. Conclusion Buttock reduction surgery comes with a lot of benefits. After the procedure, the patient will experience a boost in self-esteem and improvement in her quality of life. You will be able to move around easily, sit without any concerns, and walk like a boss. You will also be able to participate in outdoor activities and do exercises. If there are is pain or discomfort associated with overly large buttocks, the surgery would treat that as well.
