Buttock Liposuction in Charleston, SC
The buttocks is a problem area for many individuals, especially women. Women can be frustrated by excess fat or the shape of the buttocks in general. Because the buttocks is often considered a sign of attractiveness and femininity, being unhappy with yours can lead to stress and insecurity. Advances in liposuction have made liposuction a safe, effective way to reshape the buttocks. If you reside in Mt. Pleasant, Charleston, Summerville, or any of the surrounding South Carolina communities, Heidi Williams, M.D., is a board-certified, ASPS Plastic Surgeon, who specializes in addressing problem areas such as the buttocks contouring, and in helping her patients achieve their buttock and body contouring goals.
Why is the Buttocks a Problem Area?
The buttocks is a problem area because it is often a place where extra fat is stored in the body. Sometimes, people refer to their body type as “Pear-shaped” because their body tends to naturally store fat in the buttocks rather than evenly distribute it. When the buttocks becomes the main place of fat storage, people can be unhappy about their overall oval shape and silhouette.
Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction in the Buttocks?
If an individual has extra fat stored in the buttocks that makes him or her feel self-conscious, it is likely that he or she has tried to reduce it already. Whether through diet, exercise, body-wrapping, or any combination of the three, it can be difficult to shed unwanted fat from the buttocks region.
Individuals who are generally overweight by only twenty percent or less are considered ideal candidates for liposuction. If you have excess weight in the buttocks area that is resistant to diet and exercise, liposuction may be the only effective procedure for reducing fat in that region. Advances in liposuction have transformed it into a procedure with minimal downtime and side effects.
