What are the Expected Outcomes of Buttock Augmentation?

The outcomes of buttock augmentation with implants can be analyzed in two main categories: aesthetical and psychological.

Aesthetical Outcomes

Buttock augmentation with implants increases the size and the projection of the buttocks and reshape them. Contrary to Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, the size that can be achieved through buttock implants is not determined by the excess fat in the body. Therefore, patients have more size and projection options. You will have bigger, rounder, and fuller buttocks. The aesthetic results can be enhanced through liposuction or additional fat grafting combined with your buttock augmentation with implants. These combined approaches allow the surgeon to carefully sculpt the buttocks.

Psychological Outcomes

The psychological outcomes of the procedure are as important as the physical ones. If you are not happy with your butt, you can experience serious psychological distress which can negatively affect your self-confidence and social live. After the procedure, you will have a more positive self-image. Your newly resized and better-proportioned butt will boost your self-confidence. You will confidently wear your favorite fancy clothes!

How is a Buttock Augmentation Done?

Buttock Augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed for various reasons. It is customized according to needs and wishes of the patient.

Anesthesia

Like all kinds of surgery, buttock augmentation with implants requires anesthesia. Your surgeon will decide whether general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation is more suitable for your case.

Surgery

Surgery

The essence of buttock augmentation with implants is placement of silicone implants inside the buttocks to add volume and to increase the projection. First of all, your surgeon will make incisions. Through the incisions, your surgeon will place the silicone implants that are specifically designed for buttock augmentation. They are inserted either in the muscle or above the muscle. Buttock augmentation can be combined with liposuction or fat grafting.*2 Both approaches make it possible to sculpt the buttocks carefully to achieve superior results. Then, the incisions are closed. There will be deep stitches in the tissue and stitches on the skin surface.

Incision

There are several techniques of incision placement. An incision can be made for each buttock, near the top of them; an incision can be made for each buttock, at the bottom of them, in the natural crease between the buttocks and the upper thighs; or one incision can be made in the natural crease between the two buttocks, down the center of the sacrum, between the cheeks of buttocks.

Risks and Complications*3

In buttock augmentation with silicone implants the complication rate was found as 38% where the complications are:

  • Wound dehiscence/separation (7.9%)
  • Need for an implant revision for any reason (5.0%)
  • Acute prolonged pain that lasts less than 12 weeks (4.2%)
  • Need for implant removal for any reason (3.8%)
  • Chronic seromas that can require drain placement (3.7%)
  • Minor infection where implant removal isn’t required (3.6%)
  • Excessive implant palpability (3.4%)
  • Major infection where the implant removal is required (1.7%)
  • Implant asymmetry (1.7%)
  • Hematoma (0.8%)
  • Chronic pain that lasts more than 12 weeks (0.7%)
  • Inferior implant displacement (0.7%)
  • Capsular contracture (0.6%)
  • Nerve damage (0.4%)

What To Expect During A Buttock Augmentation Recovery?

The First Week

After the surgery, there will be stitches on your incisions. There will be dressings on your incisions, and you will wear compression garment for a while. Right after the surgery, it is normal to experience some pain and discomfort. You will experience some bruising and swelling as well. Pain and discomfort will improve after a few days. But expect it to last for several weeks. Until the pain is manageable, it can be successfully controlled by pain medication. Small, thin tubes may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain excess fluid and blood.*4 Your stitches will be removed after 1 week. Gentle walking is safe and recommended.

Later

Bruising and swelling will improve quickly but they will last for several weeks. Most of the patients are able to return to work or school 2 weeks after the surgery. During the early weeks, you should avoid directly sitting on your buttocks. At this time, you need to sleep on your side or stomach, and you should avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. After a few months, most of the recovery will be completed.

Guidance & Support

A wellbeing assistant will visit you in your hotel room every day during the first week after the surgery. We will expect you to be in our clinic for your post-op examination 1 week after the surgery, before you leave Istanbul. We will still follow your recovery process while you are away. Clineca will provide you with complete support and inform you about everything you need to know during your recovery. We will be with you from your consultation to the very end of your recovery.

Problems & Solutions

Buttock augmentation with implants can be an ideal procedure for patients with different body characteristics and different needs. Here, you can find answers for different complaints.

In that case, buttock augmentation with implants is the best choice for you. Brazilian Butt Lift (fat grafting) may increase the size and the projection of the buttocks. However, it cannot compete with the effect of buttock implants if a huge change is desired. Moreover, with fat grafting, the potential change is limited by the excess fat tissue in the patient’s body. On the other hand, when bigger buttock implants are used, huge changes in the size and the projection of the buttocks can be achieved.
Contrary to the Brazilian Butt Lift, you don’t have to have a certain amount of excess fat in your body to have a larger butt. Buttock augmentation with implants is effective for skinny patients, too. All you need to decide is how large you want your butt to be. Your surgeon will help you to decide.
Buttock augmentation with implants allows the surgeon to provide a dramatic change in the size, the projection, and the shape of the buttocks. The result can be further enhanced combining the implant placement with liposuction or fat grafting. Liposuction by strategically removing tissue, fat grafting by strategically adding tissue, allow the surgeon to sculpt the buttocks and greatly enhance the effect of buttock implants.
The buttock implants we use are solid silicone implant which contain no liquid inside. It is impossible for them to rupture or leak.
Then Brazilian Butt Lift is an ideal treatment for you. In BBL treatment, no implant or other artificial object is used to enlarge your butt. Your buttocks will be enlarged using your own body fat harvested from other parts of your body through liposuction. BBL is one of the most natural plastic surgery applications. The result is natural, too! Your buttocks will feel natural to touch and you will feel natural! However, when dramatic changes are desired, BBL cannot compete with buttock implants. Also, the potential change is limited by the excess fat tissue in your body.
That makes you an ideal candidate for BBL. Brazilian Butt Lift procedure has 2 main parts. The first part is liposuction, and the second part is fat grafting. In the first part, your surgeon will harvest fat from different regions of your body. He will begin to reshape your body with the first part. You can get rid of excess fat deposits at multiple parts of your body, through liposuction. In the second part, he will inject the harvested and processed fat to your butt to make it larger and shapelier. It’s e win-win for your case! But if you want a more dramatic change, then you can decide to combine fat grafting with buttock augmentation with implants procedure.
Your buttock augmentation procedure can be combined with a buttock lift or lower body lift to achieve a firm and smooth appearance while increasing your buttocks’ size and projection. These procedures are often combined. The combined approach will provide superior results.
