Buttock augmentation with implants is an excellent option to enhance the buttocks and improve its shape, especially if there is not enough fat for a fat transfer. A rounded buttock appearance with an improved projection can be achieved. This desired appearance is sometimes difficult to obtain with diet and exercise alone.
Who is a Candidate a Buttock Augmentation with Implants?
Healthy patients who have flat or small buttocks and would like to have a rounded, more projected buttock appearance are candidates for this surgery. In particular, if patients do not have enough fat for fat transfer to the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift), buttock augmentation with implants can be performed.
How is a Buttock Augmentation with Implants Performed?
The incision is made between the butt cheeks. Meticulous dissection is then performed to create a pocket within the butt muscle (intramuscular). Flexible, semi-solid silicone implants are then placed in these pockets. This area is typically at the upper and middle portion of the buttocks. These silicone implants are unlike breast silicone gel implants and do not rupture since they are made of semi-solid, flexible material. The operation is about 1.5 hours under general anesthesia.
What to Expect After Surgery
Dr. Farris and his staff will provide specific instructions regarding your surgery.
Postoperative pain is restricted to the first few days and is controlled with prescribed pain medication. There may be some swelling and bruising that may last a couple of weeks. The most important thing is to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for 2 weeks. The dressing over the incision is removed on the first postoperative visit. Strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for 6 weeks. It takes about three months for the implants to settle into their normal position. At that time, final results can be appreciated.
