The Risks of Buttock Implants

All forms of surgery carry a certain amount of risk and therefore when you are considering buttock implant surgery you should speak at length with the plastic surgeon about the risks. This form of cosmetic surgery is done at a hospital or clinic on an outpatient basis and is done under general anesthesia and that in itself carries plenty of risks. There is more of a worry when a surgery is done under general anesthesia which means the patient is unconscious, then under local anesthesia.

When buttock augmentation involves fat transfer or fat grafting techniques there is the risk of an infection occurring in the area where fat was removed and also at the site of the buttocks where the fat was inserted. When buttocks implants are placed in the body the greatest risks include the worry over the development of a bacterial infection, the fear of bleeding and of clots developing. Another common worry is that the implants will shift and the effect will be an asymmetrical appearance that requires more surgery to fix.

The most common worry with buttock implant surgery is that of capsular contracture. What this means is that the capsule or scar that surrounds the implant starts to tighten causing the buttocks to have a hard feel to it. In this case the scar tissue will have to be removed or what is known as “scored” and in severe cases the buttock implant will have to be removed all together and/or removed and replaced by another implant.

Another common risk is that of excessive bleeding after the surgery has been completed which can lead to a great deal of pain and swelling. If the bleeding goes on for an extended period of time another procedure may need to be undertaken in order to control the bleeding and to get rid of the excess blood that has accumulated in the area.

It is not common but sometimes an infection will occur at the site of the buttock implant. If this is going to take place it will do so within the first week following the surgery. If an infection does take place then the implant may need to be taken out for a number of months until the infections goes away completely and then a new implant can be put in. Some buttock implant patients may experience tiny patches of numbness in the area around the incisions but this is rarely permanent and for most patients will go away in due time.

On occasion buttock implants will leak or break open but this usually only happens if the site of the implant is injured or else due to normal compression. If a break takes place in an implant that is filled with gel one of two things could take place. In one case the shell could break apart but the scar capsule might not and this would not bring on any major change. In the second scenario, the scar capsule could break due to pressure and cause silicone gel to join with the surrounding tissue thereby altering the shape of the buttock significantly.
