About the Buttock Augmentation (Buttock Implants) Plastic Surgery Procedure Performed by the NYC Plastic Surgeon

There are various methods to augment the buttocks with plastic surgery. The transfer of fat to the buttocks that has been suctioned from areas such as the abdomen and back can produce an increase in buttock projection along with an improvement in contour of the suctioned areas. One drawback to the fat transfer technique is that the results are not permanent since much of the transplanted fat is reabsorbed during the first year. The injection of permanent fillers into the buttocks such as silicone was quite common 15 years ago. This technique resulted in many cases of buttock deformity including asymmetry, granulomas, nodularity, and migration of the silicone. The insertion of a permanent implant into the buttocks (buttock implants) provides a predictable increase in size and projection.

I have performed hundreds of buttock augmentations plastic surgery procedures at my NYC plastic surgery center over the past several years in both men and women with a very high satisfaction rate. The buttock implants plastic surgery is performed as an outpatient in my private surgical facility under general anesthesia. The template of the implant is drawn on the buttocks to guide the dissection. An incision is made in the midline between the two buttocks. A pocket is made within the gluteus maximus muscle or between the muscle and its envelope or fascia. In the U.S. only FDA approved solid silicone implants can be used to avoid the risk of leakage associated with gel implants. The buttock implants are available in either round or oval shape with various thicknesses. The implant shell can be either smooth or textured. I prefer a round, smooth buttock implant for the majority of my patients. After the implant pocket has been created the buttock implant is then inserted. Drains are often used and kept in place for several days to remove any fluid that may accumulate around the implants. Patients are usually able to walk out of the surgical facility and are instructed to rest for several days. Walking is encouraged as it has been found to decrease postoperative muscle spasms. Prophylactic antibiotics are prescribed. Oral analgesics are usually needed for at least one week. The drains are removed when only minimal fluid is present over a 24 hour period.

The results of buttock implants plstic surgery will be apparent immediately. In patients where the buttock implant is placed within the muscle it may take a few months for the implants to “settle” as the muscle relaxes. The scar usually heals very nicely leaving only a thin line just above between the buttock crease which would not be evident in even the smallest underwear or thong. Normal exercise can be resumed for most patients in 4-6 weeks.

The best candidates that I see at my NYC plastic surgery center for buttock augmentation plastic surgery with solid silicone buttock implants are men and woman who desire a fuller, rounder and more projecting buttock. In patients who have experienced overall weight loss or a loss of volume in the buttocks only, insertion of an implant can be beneficial. Combining liposuction of the lower back and thighs with buttock augmentation can enhance the shape of the body and yield dramatic results.

The satisfaction rate of patients undergoing buttock augmentation has been very high. I advise those patients interested in buttock augmentation with a buttock implant to be realistic about their goals and be committed to undergoing an elective surgical procedure that while rewarding does carry some risk. People interested in more information about buttock augmentation are invited to call for a complimentary consultation. During the consultation you will have the opportunity to ask questions, review before and after photos and see the various implants available.
