Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery technique to remove stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to dieting and exercise. These fatty bulges are most commonly found in the thighs, hips, abdomen, buttocks, knees, ankles, calves and arms. The best candidate for liposuction will be of regular weight, with only localized fat deposits.
Buttocks represent one of the most challenging areas for liposuction. After liposuction, buttocks will often have a “baggy” appearance. Sometimes, the skin will even have an unpleasant droopy appearance.
The factors that determine the likelihood and the amount of drooping include:
- Patient’s age
- Amount of fat deposits
- Skin elasticity
- Presence of stretch marks
- Liposuction technique
Will most Surgeons Perform Buttock Liposuction?
Many will. Most of them will only treat upper buttocks; very few will risk working with the lower buttock area. The risk is obvious: severe and ugly drooping due to gravity. Among those who perform lower buttock liposuction, only very few are able to avoid the unpleasant baggy or droopy look.
What is the key to successfull buttock liposuction?
First of all, Dr. Chugay will not perform buttock liposuction on everyone. During your consultation he will advise you as to whether you are a candidate or not. The reason some patients should not be treated is the impossibility of changing any of the factors (including age, skin elasticity, etc.) listed above except for one: liposuction technique. On some patients skin will droop no matter what technique is used.
However, Dr. Chugay is able to treat many patients who will otherwise be poor candidates for buttock liposuction – with excellent results and without the ugly drooping. This miracle is possible due to Dr. Chugay’s utilization of a unique precision liposuction methodology including External Ultrasound, Special Tumescent Technique, Open Incision Technique and Special Cannulas.
