Buttock implants (or buttock prostheses) make a flat buttocks appear more round and shape the curve of the hollow beneath the hip. The method of the positioning of buttock prosthesis results in a very natural look.
Indications: Flat buttocks
This occurs most frequently because of the natural shape of the human. Flat buttocks are most frequently congenital in nature and related to the body type of a person.
This defect affects both sexes, but is more unflattering in a woman than in a male, mostly for cultural reasons. A woman with round buttocks is perceived to be more feminine and desirable. There is also a birth-related inequality. If a man builds up his muscle, he can have an appropriate rounded form, while a woman, even a muscular woman, has toned but still flat buttocks. Therefore, it would be appropriate to make them more rounded at the top to give them volume.
More often than not, we combine hip liposuction with a buttock implant to improve the resulting shape.
How the buttock implant procedure works
Buttock surgery is done under general anaesthetic with one to two nights of hospitalization and is about one hour in length.
The implants are loaded with a cohesive silicone gel that makes them very robust. The surgeon will select the size and shape of the prosthesis, taking into consideration the original appearance of the patient's buttocks. There are prostheses of every shapes -round, oval, biconvex or oblong - and sizes, with an average volume of between 250 and 350 cubic centimetres.
The current method of buttocks surgery was developed by the Brazilian surgeon Dr. Raul Gonzalez. Inserted inside the gluteus maximus muscle, the buttocks implant is not apparent under the skin and is unlikely to move.
The surgeon makes an incision of about six centimeters vertically in the fold of the buttocks. Therefore, the scar is absolutely invisible. He then inserts the prostheses into a gap created by the detachment of the buttocks muscle and situated in the upper half of the buttocks. Then he stitches the deep layers and the skin with absorbable threads. Finally, a modeling dressing with elastic bands is applied.
After effects of buttock surgery
The pain will be reasonably strong for 8 to 10 days. The surgeon lifts the gluteus maximus muscle to insert the prosthesis and it is this manipulation that induces discomfort after the insertion of the gluteal implants. There will also be swelling and bruises for about 10 days. Normal activities may be resumed after a month or so.
Particular attention is paid to the management of pain. In the recovery room, analgesics of varying strengths are administered intravenously when the anaesthetic wears off. When the patient is back in the bed, the nursing staff will periodically evaluate the severity of the pain in order to increase or not the analgesic dose. The patient spends two nights in the clinic and is monitored as closely as possible during the first few days, which are typically the most painful.
You should prevent any strain on your buttocks for six weeks after you return home. It is not recommended, in particular, to sleep on your back, lean over or lift objects. The patient should preferably be seated upright. It is also a good idea to have home support with day-to-day tasks such as shopping, climbing stairs, washing, etc.
When this delicate phase has been completed, the patient will be very pleased with the outcomes and will soon forget the pain of the first few days.
Results: Buttock augmentation
The effects are instantly visible but become permanent after 2 to 3 months, the time it takes for the buttocks to soften and the prosthesis to stabilize. The flexibility of the buttocks is maintained. The implants can be worn for a lifetime.
