Liposuction is frequently requested for the buttocks area. In particular, the interior or lowermost buttock is a “problem area” of excess fat accumulation. There can also be excess fat in an extra area between the buttock and the back of the thigh which some refer to as a “banana roll”.
In the old days of much larger cannulas, the buttocks, and particularly the interior portion and banana roll, were difficult to treat with liposuction without causing an abnormal grooving of the skin surface.
However, with the newer, much smaller liposuction instruments (cannulas) this is not a problem and good results can be obtained even in these previously difficult areas.
