Buttock Implants Overview

Buttock Implants, also known as buttock augmentation, help men and women who wish to enhance the size, definition and appearance of Gluteal muscles in the buttocks area. Buttock implants give men and women added body curvature.

The buttock region is one part of the body that does not easily enlarge or get shaped by weight training or dieting. Patients who wish to have buttock implants to lift and shape their buttocks can choose from a variety of different buttock implants, depending on their individual desires and body type. Buttock implants are very soft, solid silicone implants, unlike fluid filled breast implants.

Buttock implants are performed under general anesthesia, by placing implants into each buttock through an incision made in the tailbone. The implants are positioned to look natural yet cosmetic, and the surgeon carefully checks to makes sure the implants are symmetric. Dissolvable stitches are then placed along the incision.

Having Realistic Expectations for Buttock Implants

Being honest with yourself about how your body will change and how those changes will affect your life is important. Disappointment may happen, especially if you believe plastic surgery will fix your life problems, save your marriage or cure depression. Having Buttock Implant will result in augmented buttocks. Augmented buttocks may boost your self-confidence, but that won’t change who you are or the way other people feel about you.

Questions to Ask Your Prospective Surgeon

Once you’ve made an appointment for a consultation, take the time to prepare a list of questions and concerns you want to address with your prospective surgeon. The consultation is your opportunity to assess the surgeon as much as it is their opportunity to determine your candidacy for the procedure. Take your time, be thorough and know that you are never required to commit to a procedure or a surgeon because you’ve had a consultation, even if the consultation is free.

Buttock Implant involves different techniques. Some plastic surgeons will use different techniques to achieve successful Buttock Implant. You want to make sure that you choose a plastic surgeon whose work you admire. You will be able to see the outcome of some of their laser treatments by looking at before-and-after pictures. Have the plastic surgeon thoroughly explain their procedure and why they value a certain technique more than others.

Make sure to speak to the anesthesiologist before you schedule a surgery, and inform them of any allergies or reactions you have to any medications. Make sure to tell both your surgeon and the anesthesiologist if you have any pre-existing medical conditions.

This list of information may help you compile your questions and may encourage you to do some further research on the different aspects of buttock implant procedures:

  • Is Buttock Implant the right procedure for me?
  • What type of Anesthesia will be used for the procedure?
  • How long will recovery take? When can I go back to work?
  • How should I prepare for my recovery?
  • What are the costs involved with Buttock Implant?

If you’re consulting with a surgeon referred by1800mySurgeon, you can rest assured that you will be meeting with a qualified Buttock Implants Cosmetic Surgeon. If you already have a surgeon in mind, we can also perform a background check before you schedule your consultation. Most importantly, always trust your instincts during the consultation. The success of your surgical experience will be based on how you feel about your surgeon, the surgery, your recovery and your result.

Buttock Implant Recovery

Recovery from buttock implants may be difficult, since the buttocks are a part of the body that is required for walking, sitting and other such movements. Patients typically experience greater pain and longer recovery times for buttock implants, compared to other cosmetic surgery procedures. Pain medications are prescribed by the surgeon to help ease the discomfort, and patients generally begin to walk and move around after approximately 5-7 days.

Buttock Implant Risks

Any surgical procedure carries certain risks and the possibility of complications, infection, and adverse reaction to the anesthesia.

During your consultation, you will want to ask your surgeon about the following risks:

  • Will I the implants shift when I sit and become asymmetrical?
  • Will the implants rupture or break?
  • Will I need buttock augmentation revision surgery?

It is important to remember that no plastic surgeon can guarantee your satisfaction with Buttock Implants nor can they deny any risk factors. No matter how rarely risks occur, every procedure carries a certain amount of risk, and you have to decide for yourself if your potential desired result is worth the risk.

Long Term Results of Buttock Implants

The results of Buttock Implant are permanent. If the implants use the patient’s fat, the procedure may need to be repeated periodically.
