Buttocks Tumescent Liposuction
Sculpt a more pleasing derriere
Tumescent Liposuction of the buttocks can help smooth a patient’s body contours. It acts to lift, firm, and reduce the buttocks. Buttocks liposculpting can help keep your curves in check, make it easier for you to buy clothes, boost your self confidence, and give you a younger-looking backside. Forget all those diets that don't work: tumescent liposuction of the buttocks is the easiest way to get the contours of your dreams.
Having a tumescent liposuction surgeon eliminate your buttocks fat with liposculpture is much easier and safer than undergoing traditional liposuction. The process is simple:
- You are given a local anesthetic to numb the area.
- Your surgeon then places small incisions to begin the suctioning process with a cannula.
- Your tumescent liposuction surgeon uses slow, gentle movements to remove the fat, meaning limited pain, fewer bruises, and a rapid recovery for you. The entire tumescent liposculpture procedure usually lasts only an hour or two and acts to reduce fat permanently. Tumescent Liposuction patients need only local sedation, and most patients are back at work in one or two days.
- Tumescent Liposuction is permanent. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they do not grow back.
- Tumescent Liposuction produces noticeable results, leaving you with a sculpted, contoured, and slimmer backside.

Why choose buttocks tumescent liposuction? Is it for men or women?
Both men and women benefit from buttocks liposuction. Tumescent Liposuction reduces excess adipose tissue, naturally tapering the buttocks and restoring proportion to the body. Since moderate amounts of fat can be removed, patients see a more defined rear-end. With tumescent liposuction, recovery is quick and post-op bruising and pain is minimal and results are permanent.
What is buttocks tumescent liposuction like?
Liposculpting is performed in a relaxing and luxurious spa-type setting with all the safety, sterility and standards of an operating room, under local anesthesia. Patients remain awake and alert during the entire procedure. First, the surgeon numbs the skin and places small incisions just under the buttocks. Using gentle suction, excess fat is removed with a small cannula. The procedure lasts for about one hour, and patients walk out of the office with their new, sculpted buttocks.
Am I a good candidate for buttocks tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent Liposuction of the buttocks is a safe procedure for most men and women who have a high accumulation of adipose tissue on the butt. If you can pinch more than a quarter inch of fat from your posterior, buttocks tumescent liposuction should improve your backside by eliminating that extra fat. Anyone who has had a gastric bypass, or has lost over 100 pounds might need to take extra precautions and might want to consider further skin-tightening procedures for loose skin. A consultation with the tumescent liposuction doctor can help address these issues.
Can buttocks tumescent liposuction be combined with other procedures?
Yes. Many patients choose to have their buttocks liposculpture procedure performed in conjunction with other procedures, especially thigh Tumescent Liposuction. When buttocks and hip liposculpting are combined, the laser surgeon can sculpt and slim the entire backside. Of course, not all patients need tumescent liposuction on their hips or other areas, so your surgeon can target the buttocks alone and perform this procedure by itself if you prefer.
Will I have any scars or sagging skin after buttocks tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction of the buttocks leaves only a couple of small incision sites, each only about 3mm wide, or less. The incision sites are closed with a small suture and heal within a day or two, fading into the natural color of the surrounding skin. Scarring does not usually occur.
Anyone under the age of 60 with good skin tone will generally not have sagging skin and will instead see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. All Renew patients receive a complimentary SkinTyte skin tightening treatment after the fat is removed, and time has allowed for healing and any additional swelling to subside.
What are the post-op procedures for buttocks tumescent liposuction?
Patients generally experience only mild discomfort after the procedure. You can walk immediately afterward, enjoy light to medium activities, and return to work in a day or two. Some, but not all, patients experience mild bruising. A compression garment similar to bike shorts is worn to promote healing, reduce swelling and provide the best overall results.
Some patients may experience swelling after the procedure. Good results are visible within three to four weeks; final results are seen within six months. While it does take a while for the swelling to subside, there is minimal to no pain. The most common discomfort patients experience is mild soreness, similar to the muscle ache that accompanies strenuous exercise.
