Buttock Implant

Some people spend months working out at the gym but still can’t get the fullness in the buttocks area that they’ve been working so hard for. For most of these cases, genetics plays a big role in the underdevelopment of the gluteus maximus muscles. Getting a buttock implant can correct that problem by adding fullness to the buttocks and sculpting the lower part of the body. People who have gone through this procedure tend to feel more confident about their new and improved silhouette. They can finally wear whatever they want without feeling too conscious about their backside.

Buttock augmentation is a procedure done to enhance the size and shape of one’s buttocks by placing a solid silicone, buttock implant in both buttocks. These implants can be sculpted to enhance the body’s natural curves and add fullness to an otherwise flat butt. This is a fairly new procedure and finding a qualified surgeon to perform this procedure can be quite tricky. The implants used for this procedure are not one-size-fits-all. They are sculpted to suit the patient’s body type in order to get a more natural looking curve.

What Happens During and After the Procedure

Getting a buttock implant is an out-patient procedure that can be done in the hospital or at an out-patient surgical facility. The whole procedure takes just about an hour or two to complete and patients are put under general anesthesia which allows them to sleep throughout the entire process. Once the patient is asleep, the surgeon makes an incision in each buttock at the midline. The gluteus maximus muscle is then lifted up to create space for the implant. After the implant is inserted, the surgeon inspects both sides of the buttocks to make sure that they’re even. In some cases, liposuction is done in the upper-outer section of the buttocks to create a better silhouette for the patient. The incisions are then closed and dressed and a compression bandage is wrapped around the area to keep the implants in place while the wounds are healing and to reduce swelling.

Bruising, swelling and some degree of discomfort are common after this procedure. Surgeons may prescribe pain medications to manage the discomfort felt during the healing process. The downtime for this type of procedure lasts for about two weeks. During this time the patient is not allowed to sit down or lie on their backs. After this initial healing period, patients can go back to performing simple and light activities.
