Buttock liposuction is the procedure of removing the excess fat from the bottocks. This can make the bum smaller and more in proportion, giving a nicer shape to the body. Bum liposuction is suitable for any man or woman over the age of 18 who has excess fat on their buttocks that they would like to banish.

How do I prepare for Buttock Liposuction?

Even though bum liposuction is a straightforward surgical procedure, it is still a surgical procedure. Therefore you must prepare in the same way. You shouldn't consume any alcoholic beverages during the week prior to bum liposuction, and you should stop taking a medication which thins the blood, as this could cause severe blood loss during the buttock liposuction surgery. Prior to any liposuction you should talk to your consultant about how to prepare for the buttock liposuction.

During Buttock Liposuction

Bum liposuction is performed under local, or general anesthetic depending on how extreme the liposuction is. Once the area is numb the liposuction surgeon will normally inject the buttock area with a formula which will turn the fat into liquid. An incision will then be made for the hollow tube which will vacuum out the liquefied fat. After all the unwanted fat from the buttock area is removed, a compression garment, i.e a bandage will be applied to the buttocks to aid the healing process. Because the area has been numbed you cannot drive after buttock liposuction surgery.

After Buttock Liposuction

Even though all the unwanted fat from the bum has been removed, there will be swelling and bruising which might make your bum look bigger than it actually is. But once the swelling has gone down then you will see a noticeable difference. With the bruising and swelling will come some discomfort and pain, so you may need to painkillers for the first few days after the buttock lipo. For a full list of side effects from having buttock liposuction it is best to talk to your buttock liposuction consultant. Bum liposuction is a great way of reducing your the size of your bum to make it smaller, and more in proportion with the rest of your body.
