Thank you for reaching out and posting pictures. This is a common stubborn area, there are a few options, some less invasive than others. An in person consultation would allow us to go over all of your options as well as answer all of your questions. We have offices in Mission Viejo and Newport Beach and would love to have you in for a free consultation. Best of Luck! Dr. Kachenmeister
Banana roll under buttock
Thank you for your question. After viewing your pictures, it's quite obvious that you're quite fit. The problem that you concerned with is obviously genetic. You're an excellent candidate for liposuction of this area. You should have a great result. Good luck.

As you point out this is a somewhat tricky area to treat. With the understanding that there is only so much skin shrinkage achievable, I would consider superficial liposuction of that area to reduce the padding layer of fat. In person I would also discuss with you some sculpting of your lateral femoral region which may make your backside look more shapely and your thighs more sculpted and thinner.
Obtain a few opinions with board-certified surgeons before deciding. Best wishes,

Lifting the Butt
VASER HI DEF contouring with fat augmentation / buttock lifting would be great. However, ultrasound/thermirf would help with tightening and lift as well. Cellfina can treat cellulite. I would go to someone who can give you a full evaluation and who has a practice focused on body contouring. Best, Dr. Emer.
