It sounds like the ligament that your buttock sit on was disrupted by the liposuction cannula. Unfortunately in my experience this is not fixable unless you are a candidate for a thigh buttock lift.

My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.

Banana roll liposuction is tricky and requires skill

The area under the buttock is often referred to as the banana roll. It's so called because it has the curved appearance of a banana and is more-or-less similar in shape and fullness. It's not present in everyone; it's kind of like dimples--you either have them or you don't. Those who have a banana roll often don't like it and want it gone with liposuction. Unfortunately, it requires a significant amount of skill to suction that location without creating an unintended consequence--a droopy buttock. Once the buttock has "dropped" from suctioning the banana roll, it's not easy to fix. I would suggest discussing this with your physician, and if needed, get another opinion from a very experienced physician who performs lots of liposuction to find out if anything can be done.
