Getting the body you desire starts with eating right and exercising regularly. Sometimes hours at the gym and healthy eating don’t yield the results we hope for in certain parts of our body, such as our buttocks. For many, it’s a matter of genetics; fat is distributed differently for everyone, and some cultures have a genetic predisposition toward smaller, flatter buttocks. The other culprit is age, which can contribute to a sagging buttock.
While diet and exercise can help, a buttock implant can help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted. As you can clearly see in the before and after gallery images, a buttock implant not only improves the overall appearance of the buttock, but it also helps balance out other areas of the body. For example, your waist may appear thinner while giving you more defined curves. This leads to more confidence and an improved level of self-esteem.
Buttock augmentation can be achieved through either silicone implants or fat transfer, also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift. The images contained within this gallery are the end result of silicone implants, and thus should not be confused for the results achieved through fat transfer. The results are desirable and suitable for a wide range of body types.
The implant process typically takes no more than an hour, though this varies from person to person. Under general anesthesia, small incisions are made in the gluteal crease (“butt crack”) and placed in between the gluteal muscle to prevent drooping and allow for a more natural look. Patients will have several different sizes of silicone implant to choose from, which is ultimately determined by a combination of their desired buttock look and current width, and the surgeon’s recommendation of how best to achieve it.
After the implants have been placed, the wounds are closed using dissolvable sutures that prevent future visits to have them removed. The healing and recovery time can take approximately two to three months. Patients will have to wear a compression garment during this time to keep the buttock implants high. During the recovery process, pain can be managed with pain medicine, and it’s best to avoid all exercise to allow for proper healing.
The silicone used in buttock implants is similar to the silicone used in breast implants, although it is much firmer.. A silicone buttock implant may not last forever. As a result, you might be wary about choosing implants to improve the shape and overall appearance of your buttock. But, silicone implants are a strong choice for those seeking to achieve the silhouette and backside they hope for.
