Why is buttock augmentation with implants done?
Lately, more and more attention has been paid to the appearance of the buttock as the body feature that attracts members of the opposite sex. When a person has an excessive fat deposit on some other part of the body, the effect of a tight, reshaped, and enhanced buttock can be achieved by a fat transfer procedure. However, when the patients are too skinny but they still want round and prominent buttocks, the solution is buttock augmentation with implants or the so-called “Brazilian method“- Brazilian But Lift.
Who are the candidates for buttock augmentation with implants?
The candidates for the buttock augmentation with the implants can be both women and men, primarily those with whom the augmentation cannot be achieved by fat transfer from another body part, or they want a momentarily and striking effect.
The reasons for buttock augmentation with implants can also be:
- It is impossible to achieve the growth of the gluteus muscle despite consistent workouts.
- Disproportionately small buttock compared to the body.
- The buttock is too flat.
- Saggy skin in the area of gluteus due to significant weight loss or aging.
How is buttock augmentation with implants done?
Before the surgery, you will have a consultative exam with the surgeon, during which the doctor will explain the whole procedure and the possibilities in your case to you, and he will do the marking, that is, draw the lines along which he will make the incisions.
The procedure starts with putting the patient under general anesthesia. Then a small vertical incision that is 3-6 cm long is made on both sides just next to the anus. Those incisions are used for inserting silicone implants under the gluteus maximus, while at the same time the buttock lift is done.
The result is visible immediately and ist is long-lasting. If there is the migration of the implants, or they burst, the surgery can be repeated and the implants replaced.
The operation lasts for 1 to 2 hours.
It is recommended to wear a special compressive garment which helps reduce the swellings and bruises, and with that, it makes the recovery period easier and shorter.
What should you do before the surgery?
You will need to stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen 3 – 5 days before the surgery because they intensify bleeding.
You must know that you need to stop taking any food or drink at least 6-8 hours before the surgery. . You need to remove nail polish or gel polish from your fingernails. It is necessary to remove the complete make-up from the face, as well as any piercings and jewelry. Do not apply body cream 4-6 hours before the operation. If the zone on which the surgery is done is hairy, wax it several days before the surgery.
It is necessary to bring personal hygiene items and a personal document with a picture (ID card or passport), complete medical documentation and any medications that are part of your chronic therapy.
What is the recovery process after buttock augmentation with implants?
For the first few days, you may feel pain which can be relieved with painkillers. Swellings and bruises might appear but they subside within 2-3 weeks. You may apply cold compresses to it. In this period you should avoid lifting heavy things, bending, working outs, and other physically strenuous activities.
From the first day, you need to pay special attention to the hygiene of the intimate region. There are normally many bacterias in the zone of the anus, so they can cause an infection.
Jedan dan se ostaje u bolnici, a previjanje je svakodnevno. Antibiotici se uzimaju 7-10 dana.
For the first 7 days, you should avoid sitting as much as possible. The pressure that is applied when you sit may lead to implant migration. It is recommended to sleep on the stomach. You are expected to be able to return to work in two weeks after the operation. When you sit, you should put a cushion under your tighs to decrease the pressure on your buttock. Still, avoid sitting at your workplace whenever it is possible.
A complete recovery is achieved in 4 weeks for most patients.
