What kind of butt would qualify for butt implants?

What kind of butt would qualify for butt implants?

Butt Implants: Most plastic surgeons are migrating to the brazilian butt lift procedure instead of using butt implants. Buttock implants are quite problematic in the long term.

The brazilian butt lift gives you a prominent buttocks with your own fat, with a *much* lower risk of complication.

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

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. ...Read more

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: 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. Fat graft allows your surgeon to sculpture your buttock shape and place it where the extra fat is most needed. Where implant will fill only where there is implant. But different shaped implants are a available. ...Read more

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. Also, since a bbl is a less complicated procedure, the healing time is also a lot shorter and patients can return to work sooner. However, you do need sufficient fat elsewhere in you. ...Read more

Breast implants, butt implants, and love handles lipo suction. Could all of these be done in one operation?

Not usually advised: The recovery following butt implants can be problematic as many surgeons request that you not sleep on your back for two weeks.

Given that they are equally safe, I would make decision on whether you wanted Progesterone or not? Also time frame.
