Hi, I have heard about liposuction, but in my case I feel the butt and thigh muscles are big. Even if I remove the fat by liposuction. The size of my butt and thigh will be merely reduced. Is there any other way to decrease it, to look like a male butt and thigh.


You are correct in saying that liposuction will only affect the fat and not the muscle size.  Muscle size in those areas can be largely determined by genetic factors. There is no real way to decrease the size of the muscle.
