Each patient has different wishes and requirements. During your consultation with the plastic surgeon he will determine which operative technique and which prostheses will deliver the best results for you. Each buttock corrective procedure must first be thoroughly assessed by the surgeon to achieve the most beautiful, permanent results.
In consultation with the plastic surgeon you choose the buttock implant that suits you best. For correcting the shape of the buttocks, there are the following options:
• buttocks implants: Buttocks that are too flat or too small can be given a more beautiful shape by inserting buttocks prostheses.The prostheses exist in different shapes, volumes and surfaces. The patient can achieve the best results with round or oval implants that are usually inserted between the muscle.
• liposuction + lipofilling: fat is being removed from hips, waist or back areas, and it is inserted by filling with the patient's own fat for a buttock lift effect.
• butt enhancement with fillers: injecting the gel in between the muscle and the own fat for an instant lift result.
By using the local infiltration technique, combined with intravenous sedation, inserting buttock implants has become considerably safer and a far less invasive procedure. The patient is first anesthetizes (infiltrate) at the area to be treated with a special solution. A light intravenous sedation is all that is required to let the patient sleep all along the surgery, therefore this is a painless procedure. The surgeon makes an incision about 5cm long between the buttocks level with the coccyx. The implants are inserted via a small incision resulting in minimal scarring after the procedure. The incisions are carefully stitched layer by layer with dissolvable thread. Antibiotics are routinely prescribed. After the procedure a light pressure bandage is often applied.
The operation lasts between 1 and 2 hours and some patients may return home the same day.
Aftercare and Recovery
After the procedure you will be given special aftercare instructions. It is important that someone comes to pick you up because you are not allowed to drive yourself after having aesthetic plastic surgery. It is also important that you are accompanied by a responsible adult for the first 24 hours after the operation.
The first few days following your operation it is important to rest completely. The stitches in the skin are removed after about 10 days. Then you can resume all your normal activities and light work. Avoid strenuous work, long walks, heavy lifting and exercise until 3 to 6 weeks after the operation.
Friction of the buttocks is definitely greater than with breast prostheses. It is important that for the first 6 weeks after the procedure you don't put the implants under too much pressure. It is best to sleep on your side or on your stomach the first few weeks.
The prostheses are positioned in the upper half of the buttocks so you can of course sit down. Make sure that you sit on a chair with your back straight.
After buttock enhancement with implants the results will be visible immediately. When the swelling has gone down you will see the definite results. This can take 3 months. The scars will be red for the first few months and over the next 18 months their appearance will improve.
