Butt Augmentation with Implants

Butt implants can be a good choice for patients with a low body fat percentage who don’t have enough fat for injecting, or for those who would like to add maximum volume to the buttocks with long-lasting results.

The surgery begins with an incision. This can be done in three ways:

  1. a) Upwards towards the hips from the outer edge of the buttocks

This method is fairly straightforward, but it’s not without its disadvantages. Although the scar can be hidden under clothing, it can be quite noticeable when clothes are removed.

  1. b) In the crease between the buttocks

This is the most popular method. The surgery is performed by placing a vertical incision (approx. 5-7 cm) in the area between the butt cheeks. The main advantage is that the resulting scar is more easily hidden,  and only one incision is needed for placing both implants. On the other hand, this type of wound could become more easily infected.

  1. c) Within the creases between the thighs and buttocks

This involves placing an incision underneath both buttocks in the area where your buttocks meet your thighs. Even though the incision can be hidden with underwear, the resulting scars may be visible, especially when opting for bigger sized implants.

After making the incision, the surgeon will lift up the buttock muscle through the incision to create a pocket for placing the implant.

The buttock implant can be placed under the buttock muscle (submuscular placement) or under the membrane between the muscle and skin (subfascial placement). Most buttock implant placements are submuscular since this tends to create a more natural look and the implants can’t be felt from the outside; however, the precise placement always depends on the thickness of the patient’s buttock muscle as well as the amount of adipose tissue available.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes 1-2 hours to perform. It is typically performed on an outpatient basis and you should be able to go home a few hours after surgery.
