Butt implants, or buttock implants, are intended for men and women
who would like more curves and/or a well-balanced physique. This can
improve an individualâ€™s buttock contour by creating a fuller
shape. Made out of solid or semi-solid silicone, butt implants have
a soft, natural feeling similar to a well-toned muscle.
About 2 hours.
Pain, soreness, numbness, minimal swelling and bruising for first
Back to work: 5 to 7 days. Normal activities: about 1 week. More physical
activities: about 1 month.
Infection, bleeding, nerve and/or muscle damage, slippage, and asymmetry.
Permanent (butt implants using patientâ€™s own fat may need
to be repeated periodically.)
Typically, a doctor will make an incision where the cheek meets the
back of the thigh, or down the crease between both cheeks. Although
the incision is usually made in the buttock crease, because scars are
not noticeable here (despite this area carrying a high infection risk).
He or she will then create a pocket large enough to fit the butt implants,
which can be placed underneath the gluteus maximus muscle, or on top
of the muscle. Liposuction is occasionally performed in conjunction
with buttocks augmentation, in order to enhance the shape of the buttocks.
