What No One Tells You About Buttock Implants

The buttocks is one part of the body that cannot always be made to look better in regards to being rounded, more shapely or more sculpted by way of dietary habits or exercise. That is where buttock implants come in. Be aware that buttock implant surgery carries all of the same risks as other forms of surgery, be they cosmetic or otherwise. Buttock implant surgery is done on an outpatient basis and is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient will be asleep while the procedure is being performed.

There is no guarantee that a patient will like the results of their buttock implants. There is a concern that the implants will shift over time and will cause an asymmetrical look to the buttocks region, meaning one butt cheek will not resemble the other. This could mean that the patient ends up wishing that they had been satisfied with what their buttocks looked like before the surgery was undertaken in the first place. Although rare, sometimes buttock implants can break or rupture, which would mean further surgeries would be needed to repair the damage. The good news is that buttock implants are relatively easy to remove just as they were relatively easy to put in place. Removal can be by way of the same incision and the recovery period is generally faster than it was for the initial surgery.

In some cases, plastic surgeons use fat grafting techniques instead of putting in buttock implants. This means that liposuction is done to take fat from one part of the body. The fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks for sculpting and contouring purposes. Buttock augmentation by way of fat grafting is not suitable for everyone who wishes to undergo the cosmetic procedure. Women who have little body fat are not viable candidates for this technique. Be aware that the body reabsorbs the fat that is injected into it which could lead to an asymmetrical buttock if one cheek absorbs more fat than does the other one. Recovery from buttock implants is generally longer than by way of fat grafting and there is a higher risk of pain and discomfort to cope with.

Due to the fact that this type of surgery is relatively new, it will be costly and it might be difficult to find a qualified plastic surgeon to perform it. If you choose to have buttock augmentation by way of fat grafting you will be looking at a price tag of $3000 to $5000. The price for buttock implants on the other hand will be dependent on where you reside, the surgeon you choose and the implant size as well as implant type. Most buttock implants cost between $5000 and $6500 but many plastic surgeons offer financing for their procedures.

Buttock augmentation is a difficult surgery to perform, more difficult than many people believe it to be. There is a great risk of bacterial infection in the area where the incisions are made so this should always figure into your decision making process.
