What Implant is Used for the Buttock?
The implant used for buttock augmentation is a solid gel implant. It's not an implant with any type of filler so it will never leak - it's solid but soft, similar to muscle. Different surgeons use different types of implants. There are several types and sizes that you will be able to choose from based on your desired result. The surgeon will help you choose the correct buttock implant best suited to you.
Buttock Implant Risks
Any surgery that uses general anesthetic carries some risk, albeit very low. The risks inherent to buttock implants surgery in particular have to do with infection. Since the surgical incision is near your anus, it's very important that you give much attention to cleanliness. The patient has to also take care in allowing themselves to properly heal. Patients may try to do too much too quickly, disturbing the stitches, the incision or the implants themselves. Every patient is given detailed instructions regarding post operative care by the surgeon and the nursing staff. It's extremely important to follow these directions very closely. Your ability to follow these directions ensures that your surgery has the best possible intended outcome.
Buttock Implants Recovery
The recovery from buttock implants surgery can vary from a few weeks to a month. Every patient heals differently and unfortunately follows post op care differently. Normally the first few weeks after surgery can be uncomfortable. Sitting directly on the buttocks should be avoided during this time, as well as strenuous physical activity. Swelling may persist for the first week but will normally subside after the first week.
