Large buttocks, as a rule, are formed by excess fat in this area and are usually combined with increased weight. However, lush buttocks can also occur in fairly slender women, being an individual feature of their figure. Therefore, the main “claims” of the owners are related not so much to their size as to their shape and appearance: cellulite, sagging, changing the contours of the lower body. Reducing the size and correcting the shape of the buttocks can be carried out using hardware techniques (myostimulation, electrolysis, LPG massage, cryolipolysis, cavitation, etc.) or plastic surgery (liposuction, facelifts).
A slender waist, an elastic stomach, decorated and toned buttocks — at all times a beautiful body has been the subject of pride and dreams. Buttocks have always been the subject of special attention, fascinating to look at. Therefore, any deterioration in the appearance of the buttock area immediately becomes apparent. With age, this part of the body undergoes significant changes: excess fat deposits may appear in the “breeches” area, on the buttocks. Most women and men have different age-related changes: the skin stretches and sags, the buttocks drop. At the same time, the projection of the buttocks is disrupted, the aesthetic contour of the lower body is lost.
Large buttocks are a “problem area” of many representatives of the fair sex. The reason for this may be heredity, hormonal disorders, as well as poor nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle. It is not easy for women to reduce the volume of the buttocks due to physiological reasons. The amount of adipose tissue in the buttocks in women with normal weight may differ from that in men by almost 3 times.
The cells of the adipose tissue of the buttocks and thighs have a small number of receptors for various biologically active substances, through which biochemical processes are realized that lead to fat burning. Therefore, the buttocks and thighs decrease in volume last of all, and lose weight only to a certain size, despite diets and exercises. But the weight gain is immediately most noticeable in the buttocks and thighs.
Results in reducing the volume can be achieved by changing the diet, lifestyle or by doing sports. When these methods no longer help, you can turn to the plastic correction of the buttocks.
Reducing of large buttocks
Plastic correction of the large buttocksis performed in the presence of excess adipose tissue in the parotid, suprahyagodic and subhyagodic regions; involutive changes in the gluteal region (with age-related changes after 50 years, as a result of injury, illness), manifested in violation of the trophic skin, muscle and adipose tissue, decreased tone – stretching and sagging (ptosis).
Reduction of the volume is performed using liposuction – a method of vacuum removal of excess subcutaneous adipose tissue after its destruction (mechanical or ultrasonic). With the help of liposuction, you can remove fat in those areas that are not worked out during sports (for example, in the upper part of the buttocks).
Before performing any aesthetic surgery, when choosing the type of buttock correction, it is important to establish the degree of elasticity of the skin and the presence of its excess. In young patients with good skin elasticity, one liposuction is sufficient.
Liposuction in the buttocks is performed under both local and general anesthesia. The operation lasts about 1.5 hours. Through micro-incisions (no more than 5 mm), a special solution is introduced that “melts” fat and prevents blood loss. Then the fat is removed (sucked out) by a vacuum pump using thin metal catheters. Only a small layer of fat remains on the treated areas, smoothing out the irregularities of the skin and body contour. Cosmetic stitches are applied to the incisions, which are subsequently absorbed. Ultrasound is used in ultrasound liposuction to destroy adipose tissue. The rehabilitation period is 3-4 weeks, during which it is recommended to wear special compression underwear, hot baths, visits to baths, saunas, heavy physical exertion are prohibited.
With age-related changes or after a large weight loss, the skin and tissues, especially in the buttocks, have a reduced tone, become flabby, relaxed, their omission (ptosis) is observed in the lower part. In this case, it is necessary to perform a buttock lift with the removal of excess skin and the underlying fatty tissue of the gluteal region.
When lifting large buttocks, most often a significant area of skin is removed from their upper part – up to 14 cm or more in vertical size. And the lower zones of the buttocks stretch vertically upwards, completely straightening the folds of the skin below. The incisions are sutured with a cosmetic seam. The duration of the operation is approximately 3 – 3.5 hours. On the 3rd day after the operation, you can wash in the shower. If liposuction has not been performed in adjacent areas, compression underwear is not worn. The very next day it is allowed to sit (including driving a car). The postoperative sutures located in natural folds become almost invisible after 6-8 months.
Lifting large buttocks can significantly improve their shape, give an attractive appearance. From elongated and flattened buttocks become more elevated and rounded.
The use of modern technologies, minimally invasive methods, and edoscopic techniques in plastic surgery on the buttocks gives, as a rule, very good results and helps to make the buttocks beautiful, taut, elastic.
