Butt implants surgery, also called gluteal implants surgery is a type of buttock augmentation surgery used to correct traumatic and congenital defects 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 centred on the gluteal region include:

● Gluteal implant – butt implants or buttock prosthesis
● Liposculpture – liposuction combined with a fat transfer procedure
● Body contouring – surgery combined with liposculpture

Butt Implants Candidates

Butt implants or buttock implants are recommended for any individual dissatisfied with the shape or size of their buttocks. Most individuals that choose this type of procedure have square or flat buttocks with little or no curves. Patients with a particular deformity or defect in the gluteal region can also benefit from butt implants. Transsexual and transgender individuals may also opt for butt implants in order to achieve a more feminine figure and contour.

Am I Suitable for Butt Implants?

Butt implants surgery is not recommended for morbidly obese patients or patients suffering from serious underlying health problems.

Preparing for Butt Implants

At least 2 weeks before going in for a butt implants surgery, the patient should avoid herbal teas, aspirin and blood thinners. Smoking is prohibited at least a week before the surgery and during the recovery period as it can have a negative influence on the surgery outcome.

How is Butt Implants Performed?

A butt implants surgery is usually done under general anaesthesia. Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the surgeon can proceed to create the necessary incisions. There are two main incision spots that can be used:

● An incision down the centre of the sacrum – the scar will be hidden from view.
● Two incisions in the gluteal creases – the bottom of the buttocks.

Once the incisions are created, the surgeon can proceed to place the implants according to the patient’s wishes.

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 place to position the implant depends on the patient’s body type and expectations from the surgery. Butt implants are the most effective method of buttock augmentation, given the safety of the procedure and the long lasting effects provided. Once the implants are properly placed and the result is satisfactory, the incisions are sutured and the area is wrapped in bandages. The butt implants recovery period can begin.

Butt Implants 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 use the patient’s own 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 patient wishes to have them. They don’t need to be replaced and there is no risk of leaking.

?
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 facilitate the healing process.
