Butt Reduction

Compare 9 clinics

Butt reduction surgery is a type of plastic surgery procedure which utilizes liposuction as a means to create a more aesthetically pleasing butt by effectively reducing certain parts of it.

Both men and women from all around the world turn to this procedure in order to achieve sculptured buttocks and a more nicely shaped contour for their lower body area.

While butt reduction surgery can be performed by itself, many patients take advantage of the opportunity to greatly enhance their lower body area and combine the procedure with other types of plastic surgery:

● Thigh lift – this procedure will remove any excess skin and fat tissue in the thigh area
● Tummy tuck – also known as abdominoplasty, it removes excess skin and tissue around the abdomen area
● Butt lift – some patients may have excess skin after the butt reduction surgery, so a but lift procedure may be necessary
● Liposuction – if the patient doesn’t have excess skin tissue, liposuction can be applied around the thighs or abdomen
● Autologous fat transfer or fat grafting – the patient’s harvested fat can be reinjected into specific areas around the butt, for a more appealing result

Butt Reduction Candidates

Any individual dissatisfied with the size or shape of their buttocks can benefit from butt reduction surgery. Some patients may feel that their bottom is not proportionate to the rest of their body or that it’s simply too big. Other individuals simply gain a lot of fatty tissue around the butt area alone – luckily enough, butt reduction surgery is the perfect solution to fixing these problems.

Am I Suitable for Butt Reduction?

Butt reduction surgery is not recommended for patients suffering from morbid obesity or for individuals looking to lose weight.

Preparing for Butt Reduction

Patients need to avoid smoking for at least 3 weeks before the butt reduction surgery. Herbal teas, anti inflammatory medicine, aspirin-based medicine and omega 3 capsules also need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before the procedure.

How is Butt Reduction Performed?

Butt reduction surgery usually takes around 2-3 hours, depending on the amount of fatty tissue that needs to be removed and the technique used. The procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia, but general anaesthesia may also be used if it is combined with another type of plastic surgery.

The most popular butt reduction surgery techniques include:

● Tumescent liposuction – a large amount of liquid is injected into the fatty areas. The liquid is a combination between anaesthesia and other solutions that help break up fatty deposits. A cannula is then inserted in order to harvest all the fat.

● Ultrasound assisted liposuction – this procedure is very similar to the tumescent liposuction technique, the only difference being that the cannula emits ultrasonic vibrations that help break up fat cells.

● Power assisted liposuction – this technique uses a special type of cannula which produces mechanical movement. This technique is the most comfortable for the patients, as the motion of the cannula is very limited.

Butt Reduction FAQ

Butt reduction vs butt lift – What is the difference?

Butt reduction is mainly performed through liposuction while butt lift may require several incisions in order to remove fat as well as skin tissue from the buttocks area. Liposuction can only eliminate excess fatty tissue, not sagging skin.

Is butt reduction painful?

No, it’s not painful. Patients are usually administered local or general anaesthesia and during the butt reduction recovery period, painkillers are allowed.

How much fat can be removed?

Around 3-4 litres or 6-7 pounds can be removed safely during the butt reduction procedure. Some patients may require another surgery in order to eliminate any saggy skin in the buttocks area.
