What Are Buttocks Implants Made Of?
Having a flat butt can make a person feel unattractive. To add curve and volume to the buttocks, many women come in for buttocks-augmentation surgery. This helps the rear end better match the overall proportions of the body.
Buttocks Augmentation with Implants
Getting buttocks implants has become a go-to instant transformation technique for a large number of women. Buttocks implants are a long-lasting way to boost and shape the look of the rear end.
During your consultation with Dr. Hardy, the two of you will discuss your buttocks-augmentation goals. He will perform an examination in order to have a better idea of your overall body proportions and can then create a surgical plan.
The two of you will also discuss your implant options. Your implants are an extremely personal choice, and the size, shape, and material used for your implants will all have an effect on your results.
Buttocks implants are typically made of solid silicone. While silicone breast implants are gel-based, buttocks implants are completely solid, meaning no leaks or deflation can occur.
It is recommended that patients do not go too large with their implant selection, as this can cause discomfort and a disproportionate appearance. You want the implants to be proportional to your body.
What Is Buttocks-Augmentation Surgery Like?
With silicone buttocks-implant surgery, anesthesia is first administered. This allows the patient to be comfortable for the duration of the surgery. Dr. Hardy creates an incision and then makes a pocket in the tissues for the implant to fit into. The fit must be very snug. The implants are then inserted through the incisions and positioned correctly. Finally, the incisions are closed with stitches.
It takes up to four weeks to recover from this kind of surgery. This process involves avoiding putting pressure on the buttocks and dealing with a degree of post-surgical swelling and bruising. Once the area has fully healed, you will be able to see the full results of the procedure.
Another Technique: The Brazilian Butt Lift
Buttocks implants are an excellent choice for patients who do not have a great deal of extra body fat. For patients who have excess fat that they would like to get rid of, plastic surgeons often recommend a very popular procedure called the Brazilian butt lift.
In this procedure, fat is taken from the hips, abdomen, back, or thighs of the patient via liposuction. This contours these areas and reduces them in volume. The donor fat is then purified to remove dead and damaged fat cells. Finally, the healthy fat cells are carefully and evenly injected into the buttocks in order to create a full, firm, round shape and long-lasting volume.
A combination of implants and a fat transfer may be an option. This ensures that the buttocks achieves a full, well-rounded look.
