What are Butt Implants?
Butt implants are used for patients who would like to have a firmer, more shapely butt. The implants are soft and composed of a solid silicone, unlike breast implants that are fluid-filled. With butt implants, incisions are made in the crease between the butt cheeks, and the implants are then inserted. They are placed on top of the muscles and will give the butt shape and firmness where it once was flat. Men and women alike can benefit from this procedure.
Benefits of Butt Implants
Butt implants can greatly enhance and improve the patient’s appearance, especially when wearing tight fitting clothing or a skimpy bathing suit. Going from a flat butt to a shapely, perky one is a tremendous ego boost. It will also help to keep the body in proper proportion, especially if the butt was the one area of the body that was lacking in shape previously. Implants can change a person’s entire attitude because of an improved appearance.

What is the Recovery Time of Butt Implants?
After surgery, there will be some swelling and bruising that may last from a few days to a few weeks. A support garment will be worn for a short period of time, according to the surgeon’s instructions. Numbness may also be present for a short time after the procedure. Stitches are usually removed within a week to ten days, but there may still be some swelling for a short time. Recovery time will vary with each patient, as some individuals may heal more quickly than others.
Do I need Anesthesia for Butt Implants?
General anesthesia is used for this type of surgery. The patient will receive treatment as an outpatient.
Is Butt Implants Safe?
A qualified cosmetic surgeon should be chosen for the procedure of inserting butt implants. Any surgery presents certain risks, such as bleeding, chance of infection and complications from anesthesia. The patient should discuss possible risks and side effects with the surgeon before the procedure.
Do I need to Prepare for Butt Implants?
To prepare for butt implants, certain medications will need to be avoided for a short period of time before the procedure. This would include any drugs that act as a blood-thinner, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Other medications may need to be taken shortly before the procedure to reduce bleeding and bruising after the surgery. Smoking should be avoided before any type of surgical procedure.
How Long Does Butt Implants Last?
Butt implants can last for a lifetime. If an infection should develop, the implants would need to be removed, but there is the possibility of reinserting them at a later time when the infection has been completely cleared up.
