The Benefit Of Butt Implants Abroad 

Losing your body curves over the years is common, especially if it goes through rapid weight loss, aging, or other natural factors. Lacking feminine body features can affect your psychological well-being.

Cosmetic procedures like butt implants abroad will boost your self-esteem and give you a curvy body frame. But there are many appeals for having the procedure abroad: 

Doctors abroad speak and communicate in English. 

Some patients might hesitate to consider having the treatment abroad because of language or cultural barriers. But in medical tourism destinations like Turkey, Hungary, and Poland, doctors regularly serve international patients. They can communicate in good English.

Some doctors had their training abroad, which explains their good English proficiency. Also, their clinics have assistants who communicate in English.

Affordability doesn't compromise the quality of the treatment. 

The quality isn't compromised for affordability. The surgeons are well versed in cosmetic surgeries and have years of experience. Some of them have credentials from prestigious global universities. The standard of care and expertise in these clinics abroad is as good as those in the UK, US, and Europe, if not better.

Advance service 

Some patients prefer an agency to plan their treatment abroad. It gives you relief to focus on your recovery. The agency will prepare a customized trip that fits your needs. The package will include flight, accommodation, and airport transfer.  

Excellent surgeons

Renowned institutions with international accreditations have top-class surgeons who are trained and have years of experience. You can evaluate their experience based on the awards and credentials on their clinic websites.

Tips For Choosing The Best Bum Augmentation Clinic Abroad 

  • Verify the surgeon's experience. Ask about the surgeon's education, additional fellowship training, and how often they performed the treatment. 
  • Schedule an online consultation. Most clinics or hospitals that work with international patients offer this service. 
  • Research the condition of the clinic before booking. It's recommended to visit the clinic before booking and finalizing the procedure. Talk to the staff and past patients if possible. 
  • Ask what's the follow-up steps after the surgery and aftercare procedure steps. 
  • Choose the right surgeon, do your due diligence, and enquire. 
  • Plan your trip well, and give yourself time to rest after the treatment.

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

How Long Should You Stay in The Hospital After The Surgery? 

The patient is required to stay 1 night in the hospital. 

How Long is The Surgery? 

The surgery will take 1 to 2 hours

What To Avoid Before The Surgery? 

At least 2 weeks before undergoing butt implant 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 is The Procedure 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

Bum Implant Recovery Timeline 

The butt implant 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.

Butt Implants Procedure Complications

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 

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.

Buttocks Implant Success Rate

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

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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 

Butt Implants Vs. Fat Transfer – What Is the Difference? 
Butt implants are a type of prosthesis that can be used to enhance the gluteal region. Fat transfers (also known as Brazilian Butt Lift (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 implant procedure will bring the patient 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
