My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Recommended For Butt Implants

Butt implants or buttock implants are suitable for individuals who desire to enhance the shape or size of their buttocks. Individuals who have square or flat buttocks with little or no curves are also recommended for this procedure. Patients with a deformity or defect in their gluteal region can also benefit from butt implants. Transsexual and transgender individuals may also be good candidates for butt implants in order to achieve a more feminine figure and contour. 

Not Recommended For Butt Implants

Butt implants surgery is not recommended for morbidly obese patients or patients suffering from serious underlying health problems as in other buttock enhancement procedures.

Discharge From Hospital

Patient is required to stay 1 night in the hospital

Duration Of Operation

1 to 2 hours

Overview

Butt implants surgery also called gluteal implants surgery, is a type of buttock enhancement surgery used to correct traumatic and congenital disabilities in the gluteal region. 

This procedure can also be used to aesthetically enhance the gluteal region and the contour of the buttocks through the use of prosthesis. 

The basic plastic surgery procedures centered on the gluteal region include: 
● Gluteal implant – butt implants or buttock prosthesis 
● Liposculpture – liposuction procedure combined with a fat transfer 
● Body contouring – buttock enhancement surgery combined with liposculpture

Preparation

At least 2 weeks before undergoing butt implants surgery, the patient should avoid blood thinners such as aspirin or herbal teas and supplements. Smoking is not allowed at least two weeks before and after the surgery as it can cause a negative effect on the surgery outcome.

How It Is Performed

A butt implants surgery is usually done under general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia applies, the surgeon starts to create the proper and necessary incisions. Two main incision sites can be used: 

● An incision down the center of the sacrum 
● Two incisions in the gluteal creases 

Once the incisions are created, the surgeon can proceed to place the implants according to the planning and preparation decided prior to surgery.

The surgeon can place the buttock implant in three different spots: 
● Submuscular – under the muscles 
● Intramuscular – inside the muscles 
● Subfascial – over the muscles 

The best position of the implants is decided by the surgeon depending on the patient’s body type and expectations from the surgery. Butt implants are the most effective method of buttock enhancement, considering the safety and long-term effects of the procedure. When the implants are properly placed and the results are satisfactory, the cuts are sutured and the surgical site wrapped in bandages. At this point, the recovery time of butt implants may begin

Recovery

The butt implants recovery period usually lasts between 4 to 6 weeks, after which the patients can return to their daily activities. During the recovery period, the patient may feel some pain while sitting down, which can be eased with painkillers. In around 6 to 8 months, the scar will be almost invisible and all the tissue in the operated area will be completely recovered.

Risks

Butt implants complications can include the following: 

● Anesthesia risks

● Infection 
● Bleeding (hematoma)
● Implant rupture 

● Fluid accumulation (seroma)
● Capsular contracture 
● Surgical wound dehiscence 
● Implant shifting 
● Sciatic nerve damage

● Rare blood cancer 

Side Effects

The patient may feel discomfort and pain in the first few days after the surgery. Some patients may also experience nausea as a side effect of anesthesia. Inflammation and swelling are also very common in the first 1-2 weeks after this buttock enhancement operation.

Success Rates

A survey based on 129 buttock implant patient reviews sets the satisfaction rate at 76%. The satisfaction rate for the patientswho received fat transfer is 69.7%.

Before And After

Butt implants do not leak when placed by experienced plastic surgeons and stay as long as patients do not want to be removed. The exact results of the procedure can be seen in about 8 to 12 months. If no complications occur in the first 6 months, butt implants are safe for 10 to 20 years.

Faq

Butt Implants Vs. Fat Transfer – What Is the Difference? 
Butt implants are a type of prosthesis which can be used to enhance the gluteal region. Fat transfers (also known as Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL) use the patient's fat from different areas of the body, but it cannot be used for larger changes and there is a risk that the transplanted fat tissue will die. Fat transfers have a slightly smaller patient satisfaction rate, compared to buttock implants. 

How Long Do Butt Implants Last?
Butt implants can last a lifetime or as long as the patients don't change their idea about having them. They don’t need to be replaced and there is no risk of leaking. A properly performed butt implants procedure will bring the patients pleasure for years to come. 

Will I Wear A Compression Garment After the Surgery?
Yes, the clinic will provide you with a compression garment which needs to be worn as instructed – it helps minimize the swelling

Back To Work

2 to 4 weeks
