men and women who want a well balanced physique or would
like more curves where there were none before, there is
now an option: buttock implants (butt implants). This
procedure can provide an improvement in buttock contour
by increasing projection and creating a rounder and fuller
shape. The insertion of a buttock implant can also provide
the appearance of a lift to the buttock region. Unlike
fat transplants which often shrink and become reabsorbed
by the body the insertion of a buttock implant will produce
a permanent enhancement of the area.
buttock implant is made out of solid silicone and has
a soft, natural feel similar to a well toned muscle. Buttock
implants are available in several sizes and are shaped
round or oval. The butt implant is usually inserted under
the gluteal muscle or just under the muscle fascia. This
butt implant procedure takes approximately an hour and
a half and is performed under general anesthesia. The
incision is hidden between the buttocks in the midline
region. The butt implant does not affect sitting since
it is placed away from the bony area of the buttocks.
recovery period varies depending on the patient. If the
implant is inserted under the muscle the area can be quite
sore for several days. Walking is permitted and has been
found to speed recovery by stretching the muscles which
can become tight in response to surgery.
implants (butt implants) can be combined with liposuction
of the lower back and thighs to provide further contouring
of the region.
