Be it with increasing age, due to personal predisposition or following much weight loss: there are many reasons why patients are unhappy with their buttocks. So if in spite of sports and toning exercises, the long-awaited dream buttocks fail to appear and one continues to see her buttocks as too saggy or small, augmentation based on implants may increase the patient’s well-being. After all, for many women and men, shapely curves are part of an attractive figure; and also in plastic-surgical terms, there have been many changes in recent years: while buttock augmentation has for a long time been rare in Germany, the trend from South America and the US has finally arrived here. In this respect, we can currently rely on top-quality implants and innovative surgical techniques.
The insertion of buttock implants
In general, buttock augmentation is proceeds as follows: during the procedure, specific silicone implants are inserted into the buttocks to obtain a fuller shape. Prior to surgery, the patient’s desires and ideas are determined precisely. During the procedure, a vertical incision of a length between five and seven centimetres is made in the upper region of the gluteal fold. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. The implants are finally inserted intramuscularly.
The buttock implants used are available in different forms. They are made of silicone, so they are particularly resistant and elastic. Since they are inserted above the seat leg, they will not bother you when you sit down. During the procedure, a drain is placed, which serves to drain any fluid accumulation the following days. The procedure can take one to two hours and requires the patient to stay in hospital for two to three days. Afterwards, it is advisable to stay at home for at least two weeks. Any effort should be avoided here.
Buttock implant surgery for men
It might be surprising but buttock implants are among the most popular aesthetic-plastic surgeries for men besides calf procedures. Sagging or small buttocks are considered unattractive by the patients themselves and unfortunately, the toning exercises remain without the desired outcome. As for women, implants may improve things also for men, which are selected and used in accordance with the male body shape.
