Will Liposuction Under the Butt Make my Butt Sag?
Buttock sagg after thigh lipo
You appear to be an excellent candidate for lipo sculpture to the areas of concern you have highlighted. The upper thigh/ bannana roll area IS important for buttock support and needs to be respected. Re shaping the buttocks is a specialised field of lipo sculpture and often involves fat grafting.
I would suggest a moderate amount of medial/ inner posterior thigh liposuction going as high as the "ideal" crease location. I would also remove fat from the medial aspect of the lower buttock above the desired crease position. Only minimal liposuction to the middle and lateral/ outer bannana roll area (I use a particular instrument and technique in this area to prevent problems such as collapse/ indentations/ asymmetry etc). To improve the definition of your fold (crease) I would suggest careful removal of fat from the upper buttock/ lower back area together with fat grafting into the mid and lower buttock area which will serve to increase the projection of your buttocks over the fold and maintain the rounded shape to the buttocks desired by many women. Liposuction to the bannana roll area can result in unwanted apparent lengthening and sometimes flattening of the buttocks (giving a more aged appearance) which is what the above procedures are designed to oppose.
A careful discussion with your Specialist Plastic Surgeon is critical before embarking on your planned surgery. Ask to see the surgeon's before and after photo gallery and if in any doubt get a second opinion. You'll be in good hands.

If there is too much fat - the upper thigh very carefully reduced with liposuction.
A crease can often be created by liposuction alone but it is less predictable.
Depending on the look you want, creating a surgical crease can be better. Best wishes.
I would be careful about liposuction of the lower buttock area

Liposuction under the Butt | What Results to Expect
You appear to have healthy skin with good elasticity.
Conservative, focused liposuction for the "banana roll" at the top part of the posterior thigh can improve contour in this area. If you get too much done, then yes, it can make the lower butt crease sag over and make your butt look older than you want it too.
To be sure, see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
