Why Butt Implant

As a secondary option for butt augmentation, butt implants are used for patients seeking more dramatic proportions and reshaping of their buttocks. This option is particularly suitable for individuals who desire a Brazilian butt lift but have limited body fat in donor areas for liposuction.

Butt implants are typically made of semi-solid silicone, specially designed for buttock augmentation. They provide a lasting enhancement to the shape and size of the buttocks, giving patients the desired fuller and rounder appearance. However, like any surgical procedure, it is essential for patients to have a thorough consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss their goals, expectations, and determine if butt implants are the most suitable option for them.

Butt implant procedure

During butt implant surgery, the surgeon will suggest either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia to ensure the patient's comfort throughout the procedure.

Next, the surgeon creates incisions in both of the gluteal creases toward the bottom (between the cheeks). Through these incisions, the silicone implants are carefully inserted. There are several methods of silicone implant positioning. The first method is sub-muscular insertion, where the implant is placed beneath the gluteus maximus muscle. The second method is intramuscular insertion, and the third method is above the gluteal muscle.

Experts often recommend sub-muscular positioning because it provides better protection for the implant with more soft tissues, such as muscles and fatty tissue. Additionally, sub-muscular placement helps reduce the visibility and palpability of the implant, leading to a more natural appearance.

In some cases, surgeons may combine fat grafting with the implant to further refine the final shape and appearance of the buttocks.

After correctly positioning the implant, the surgeon meticulously closes the incisions using multiple layer sutures, as this procedure involves several soft tissues in the buttocks. Skin incisions are closed with surgical tape or sutures to promote optimal healing and minimize scarring.

Recovery after butt implant surgery

After the surgery, the patient must strictly lie on their chest. Sleeping on the back is completely forbidden during the first two weeks after the surgery, as well as sitting and bending positions, except when using the bathroom. A sitting protocol will start gradually after two weeks. Meanwhile, the patient must strictly follow these instructions to avoid any possible complications, such as bleeding, implant malpositioning, and incision reopening.

Full resumption of activities may take up to two months.



The results of butt implant surgery are immediately visible. However, the final results take some time to fully develop as the swelling and bruising subside. Over time, the scars will fade and become less noticeable.
