Liposuction of the Buttocks



What is Buttock Liposuction?

Buttock liposuction can reduce a large, protruding backside area. It can slim the area overall, re-contour the body, and make the body look better proportioned. Clothes, pants, and jeans usually fit better after surgery.

SlimLipo™ can be an aid in achieving the best skin tone possible for buttock liposuction. The skin of the buttocks will usually respond very well with liposuction, and the addition of SlimLipo™ can enhance the result. SlimLipo™ also allows for the smooth extraction of buttock fat. For these reasons, Dr. Finder strongly recommends SlimLipo™ for all buttock liposuction procedures.

Candidates for Buttock Liposuction

Buttock size and shape is determined by muscle size and tone, the amount of fat present overlying the muscle, and the tightness of the skin. The size of the muscle and the thickness of the fat are genetically determined. The tone of the muscle can be enhanced with exercise, but even the best exercise routine may not have a significant impact on the overlying fat. It can be very frustrating to women who work hard at the gym and still can’t rid themselves of the fat that their genetics is dictating they have. Buttock liposuction can reshape these genetically predetermined fat deposits.

How Does It Work?

SlimLipo™ works by not only suctioning out fat but by liquefying it and melting it away, too. The entire procedure is performed while the patient receives tumescent anesthesia so the treatment area is completely numb and the patient feels no pain or discomfort. Additionally, our practice is one of the very few cosmetic surgery practices that offers ProNox, a nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) option that helps patients who are awake for surgical procedures be relaxed, completely comfortable, and even laugh while their surgery is being performed.


Patients are typically very happy with the results of buttock liposuction from Dr. Finder. Dramatic results can be achieved in just one session. Combining tumescent technique liposuction with a good exercise program for gluteal muscle tone and strengthening can achieve a very desirable contour and enhanced appearance.


Following buttocks liposuction, you’ll be placed in a compression garment, which should be worn for two weeks to minimize swelling. You’ll need to take several days off work if your job requires you to sit for an extended period, and you won’t be able to sleep on your back until cleared by Dr. Finder. Normal activities that don’t involve long periods of sitting, however, can be resumed in merely a matter of days following your surgery.
