WHAT IS A BUTT AUGMENTATION?
A butt augmentation is an alternative way to increase the size and shape your buttocks with the use of implants. This surgical procedure is typically used to create volume when fat grafting is not possible due to a lack of body fat.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
A good candidate for butt implants is someone who wants to improve the shape and size of their buttocks and does not have enough body fat to be transferred. Patients that have lost weight or are looking for a curvier silhouette can benefit from this procedure.
Silicone implants are surgically placed into the buttocks via a discrete incision between the butt cheeks. This procedure is done under general anesthesia and typically takes about 3 hours to complete.
The recovery from butt augmentation is one of the most strict and delicate. It is very important that the patient does not sit or put pressure on the buttock area for a minimum of 3 weeks. Drains will also be needed for the first 3 weeks.
After initial swelling and bruising, it can take 3-6 months to see the full results. Buttock augmentation is considered a permanent surgery but it’s important to note that fis the implant shifts or breaks, you will need revision surgery to maintain your results.
The cost for a butt augmentation can vary depending on the patient’s individual needs but it is typically: $7,000
