Hi there-

This area usually responds well to liposuction.

If you are interested in improvement without surgery, Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is an exciting new technique that allows your fat to be eliminated permanently in a totally non-invasive office procedure.

Liposuction of the Back

Without pictures, it is impossible to give you specific advice.  However, lower back liposuction is a very common procedure to help shape the lower back and upper buttocks.  It is a relatively quick procedure with short recovery.  However, many patient combine liposuction of the abdomen and or thighs for an even more dramatic change.  Good luck with your surgery.

Liposuction of the lumbosacral region and area above the buttocks can produce a nice improvement in individuals with excellent skin tone and elasticity.

Correction of the Above the Buttock Fat Shelf

While the junction between the lower buttocks and upper thighs is clear and sharp, this is commonly NOT the case with the junction between the upper buttocks and lower back. Many women often have fat which obscures the round margins of the buttocks and the V shaped valley where the cheeks diverge. In Black patients, many have an actual shelf of fat which further obscures the anatomy. Careful liposuction which unveils the anatomy (IE Hi Def Lipo) can create BEAUTIFUL results with great enhancement of the buttocks. Dr. Aldea
