Is possible to have a painless butt augment surgery? Also do the butt implants hurt after the surgery. I want to have a bigger butt.
See options: No, buttock augmentation surgery is not painless. The options to consider are whether the adjacent areas need liposuction to get tissues more proportionate; having fat grafting; and lastly silicone implants. The latter procedure causes the most pain and also has the highest complication rate with some patients requiring removal of implants. See a plastic surgeon in your area. ...Read more
Implants vs fat: These are not equivalent. Fat grafting uses your own fat to accomplish buttock augmentation. Donor sites and associated risks are involved. Only a certain percentage of the fat survives which can vary tremendously. Implants are typically made of solid silicone and require an incision.

Is a butt implant procedure considered a major surgery? I don't want to put myself in a position where I basically elected a major procedure. Are butt implants considered a major or risky operation? .
Minor surgery is having a mole removed or a scar revised. It takes a few minutes under local and pain medication is not pain medication other than Acetaminophen (tylenol) is necessary. However, even minor surgery can cause major problems if not performed under the correct conditions, and just because a procedure can be done under local, does not mean that it is minor.
From a plastic surgeon's perspective, all surgery should be treated as major surgery. What I do for a living is elective, so the standards need to be held to the highest level. The risks, while small, are not zero. The risk of driving to the surgery center may be higher than having elective surgery, but it doesn't keep me from driving.
I would consider buttocks implants a major procedure. It requires an accredited surgical facility, meticulous sterility and surgical expertise. I also consider it a risky operation, not so much from a safety standpoint, but from a patient satisfaction standpoint. The implants often sit too high, and are not aesthetic. Some people feel the same way about breast implants; however, breast implants have a 92% worth it rating while buttocks implants only get 33%. Satisfaction with fat grafting is much higher, and in selected situations may be a better choice.
The most important part about any elective surgery is not the procedure, but the practitioner. No matter how good an implant or a procedure may be, it can't make up for poor judgement. Find an experienced, board certified, plastic surgeon in your area and pay for a consultation. It is money well spent. ...Read more

Very different: Implants are very good but requirer additional surgeries for replacement and maintenance. Fat graft on the other will last forever. But remember not all of the transfer fat may work.

Butt Lift or Implant:
Butt lift vs implant
a bbl is safer for the patient since there is a lower chance of a complication arising. Since the implant procedure needs an incision, it is more likely to get infected and cause problems post-op.

I would not typically advise simultaneous breast and butt surgery. ...Read more
