Are, butt implants are safe to get? & is it safe to get them done in the city?

Not popular: Buttock implants frankly are not popular in the US. It may be due to doctors and patients bad experiences, or due to social and cultural norms. Buttock implants can get infection, positioned wrongly, or can even come out at a higher rate than more traditional implants like breast implants. If you are considering this surgery, make sure the surgeon is a board certified plastic surgeon.

Is a butt augmentation using implants safe and common?

Is a butt augmentation using implants safe and common?

Yes: Gluteal implants are an excellent option for thinner patients wanting a more curvaceous derrière. They are safe when performed by a well trained surgeon although they still carry a higher complication rate than breast implants. Sientra, the manufacturer, will only sell them to plastic surgeons rather than any surgeon to try and minimize complications.

Butt implants: Buttock implants are extremely effective at accomplishing the goal of buttock augmentation, but lack of mobility is a big issue. The implants have to be put in the muscle so it is quite uncomfortable. Usually, it is very difficult to be very mobile for at least the first three weeks.

I want to get butt implants but what are the risks? How long do they last what are the different procedures?

Butt implant risks: Include infection requiring removal, scarring, asymmetry, loss of sensation, pain, and malposition, among other more rare ones. Fat grafting is another option for buttock enlargement, but can require more than one treatment and can also leave lumps, irregularities, scar tissue, or become infected, etc. Fat is living and lasts long-term; implants do not leak or break--should last long-term.

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.

Is it possible for saline butt implants to rupture?

Not made of saline: I am not aware of any saline buttock implants that are used. In the unlikely event that someone would use a saline breast implant for a buttock augmentation, it would theoretically be 'possible for saline butt implants to rupture.'.

Can you tell me about fat grafting (butt implants)?

Can you tell me about fat grafting (butt implants)?

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. Even in experienced hands implants may have a complication rate of up to 30% but may be the best option in thin pt.
