Butt Implants Fort Lauderdale for Buttock Augmentation
Buttock implants Fort Lauderdale may be the only option thinner patients have available to augment as they don’t have enough fat available for transplanting. This is a permanent solution as the implants are flexible and made of solid silicone that will not rupture and provide lasting and predictable improvement.
Butt Implants Within the Muscle for Best Results
The intramuscular placement of the implants will provide the most natural results and comfort as you will not be able to see or feel them. This approach also reduces the risk of capsular contracture. Some patients are concerned the implants may be too hard or look too fake. The truth is butt implants look more natural than ever.
First, two small incisions are made between the buttocks by the crease. There are many volumes and shapes of implants that can be placed upon your anatomical dimensions and goals for butt augmentation. This procedure takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete. The surgeon takes time to carefully dissect the pocket where the implant will be placed in a way that prevents bleeding. An antibiotic solution is placed together with the implants once the operation is completed. The pocket should be the same size as the implant to reduce the risk of rotation or migration.
Butt Implant Shapes
The main types of buttock implants Fort Lauderdale available at Adore Plastic Surgery are round and oval implants. Round implants are more popular as they give the illusion of hips and don’t make the buttocks look too long or narrow. Oval implants, however, are much easier to place than the round ones. Most patients prefer round implants to create the coveted hourglass figure. Also, oval implants can rotate inside the pocket and cause deformity.
Butt Implants Sizes
Selecting the right implant size for buttock augmentation is crucial to the outcome of the surgery. Implant sizes range from 100+cc ideal for patients with smaller body size and 712 cc for those desiring a larger profile. Smaller implants are easier to place and involve fewer complications than the larger types. Most patients, however, want implants larger than 400 cc. Keep in mind, if you want to accomplish maximum buttock augmentation with butt implants, you must seek an expert surgeon that specializes in this particular procedure. The implant has to be enveloped in muscle; otherwise, it may shift, or the contours may become apparent.
Lipo and Butt Implants
Liposuction of the midsection can be combined with butt implants to improve the overall body proportions. Fat can be transferred to the buttocks and hips at the same time. Some patients may request the larger implants available (712 cc) and transfer fat to the hips to create the most projection and larger hips. This makes it possible for anyone to have the hourly glass figure even when they may not qualify for a fat transfer procedure such as a Brazilian butt lift. You can also remove your current implants and place new ones or transplant fat grafted to the buttocks as desired.
Butt Implant Recovery
During recovery, patients are advised to eat at least 100 grams of protein each day as the body will need more calories to heal properly. All post-operative instructions must be followed for at least eight weeks. Patients are also instructed to limit their physical activity and quit routine workouts for eight weeks.
Implants are placed in the largest muscle in the body. The gluteus is engaged when walking or standing, especially when going upstairs or when going longer steps. Therefore, patients should take only the necessary steps and refrain from the activities mentioned above. Likewise, muscle contraction may increase complications such as incision opening, wound healing, seroma formation, and fluid collection. Buttock implant surgery involves a difficult recovery that requires discipline. Fluid collection is generally the only issue patients will experience. Drains are placed after surgery and they should be removed every two hours to prevent clogs. Areas around the body should be cleaned with a sponge during the first 3-4 weeks.
Butt Implants vs Brazilian Butt Lift
Surgery with implants involves a silicone-filled or water-filled device placed on the buttocks, which creates a rounder appearance. Gel silicone implants are used much less than water-filled implants. In case of a rupture, water-filled implants are less dangerous. Silicone implants, on the other hand, can leak and cause an unattractive appearance with the risk of infection being higher. However, there is a newer type of implant called solid silicone, which cannot rupture.
Brazilian butt lift is the best alternative to butt implants. This procedure doesn’t involve a foreign object placed into the buttocks. Your own fat is removed through liposuction and transplanted into the buttocks. Also, the injections leave scars that are less visible. BBL is a minimally invasive procedure with less downtime and an easier recovery.
Cost of Buttock Augmentation using Implants
The price is based on the extent of surgery and surgery expertise. The best way to assess the costs is to come in for an in-person exam. The surgery for buttocks implants can range from $6,000 -10,000, including implants, surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fee, and facility fee.
