BUTTOCKS AUGMENTATION

                                                                                                                                                

Technically known as augmentation gluteoplasty, buttocks augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the size and shape of buttocks. Both female and male patients can opt for this surgery.

 

You may choose to undergo buttocks enlargement for a number of reasons:

To increase buttocks volume caused by poorly developed muscles.
To achieve firmness and definition of buttocks region.
To obtain a mild buttocks lifting effect.

 

Important facts that you should know about the Buttocks Enlargement procedure:

 

How is this surgery performed?                                                          

You'll probably wish to discuss the pros and cons of the surgery with your surgeon beforehand to make sure you fully understand the implications of the procedure he recommends for you.

 

Surgeons will make a small incision at the crease of tailbone approaching submuscular planes, creating bilateral pockets where soft cohesive gel implants will be placed at.

 

Anatomical designed buttock implants made of soft cohesive silicone gel are the only type of implants to allow a successful final outcome. They are safe, have natural adjusting capacity yet very strong and resistant, they feel natural allowing patients to have a normal life.

 

Trying to use breast implants and other inappropriate implants in buttocks is an entirely wrong decision as stress on buttock implants caused by sitting, walking and running is totally different from the one breast implants were designed to endure. We use high quality implants that are designed for the amount of wear and stress that buttock implants receive.

 

Buttock implants must be placed deep under the muscle where they look, act and feel natural. We have seen many problems from surgeons who do not have adequate training in this procedure, placing implants just under the skin which cannot work long term.

What type of implant is used for buttocks augmentation?                 

 

We prefer to use soft cohesive silicone gel implants. The term cohesive means that the high technology filling substance of implants adheres together avoiding migration in the remote case of rupture.

 

 

How long will the surgery take?                                                         

 

Buttocks augmentation surgery usually takes two to three hours.

How long will my recovery take?                                                       

Immediate post-surgery recovery takes 12 days allowing you to return home after this time in the understanding that a complete recovery period will take a whole month and sometimes even a bit longer.

 

What am I to expect after my surgery?                                               

Like any other plastic surgery, you are likely to feel discomfort, restless and probably somewhat tired of resting on your abdominal region. Muscle contraction is one of the typical signs patients refer when having undergone buttocks augmentation. Your muscles become stretched by implants pushing against them which is interpreted as a strong pressure in buttocks region. Most of your discomfort can be controlled by medication prescribed by your doctor.

 

A post-surgery garment must be worn straight after surgery which will help getting rid of inflammatory process as well as helping implants and healing process to settle properly. Post-surgery garment will be recommended during 45 days which is the time needed for implants to become wrapped by capsular tissue.

It is possible to have implants rejected by my body?                         

Rejections are caused by:

  • Incorrect placement of implants.
  • Wrong election of size of implants.
  • Use of breast implants rather than especially designed buttock implants, not only because of their shape but also because of their strong resistance.
  • Use of rigid silicone or semi hard elastomer implants.
  • Seroma development which is minimized avoiding too much internal bleeding during surgical operation.
  • Lack of following prescribed post-operative rest and instructions like doing hard work too early after surgery, and in general putting too much stress on the affected area during the first days of recovery period.          

Is this true that implants can slide down or get out of place?            

The problem you mention is the result of wrong surgical technique and the type of implants used in the procedure. This problem occurs frequently when solid silicone implants are used, being placed underneath skin; this approach is destined to produce great discomfort and implants displacement.

When placing soft cohesive gel implants between the muscles, they will remain trapped in between muscles,which minimizes the risk of displacement or movement.
