Selecting Buttock Implants

There are various types, shapes, and sizes of butt implants. The ideal one is usually chosen during the consultation session. Your cosmetic surgeon will assess your rear end and take specific measurements. They will consider your body outline and overall physical features as well. The surgeon, based on these observations, will recommend an ideal implant size and type that will go well with the overall body shape.

Anesthesia Administration

Buttock augmentation enhancement cosmetic surgery procedure begins with administration of anesthesia. You won’t feel any pain or discomfort under general anesthesia. A qualified anesthesiologist will perform the anesthesia and will be present for monitoring your response throughout the plastic surgery procedure.

Making Incisions

The cosmetic surgeon will begin making discreet incisions after administering the anesthesia. The incisions are made to fit the implants in the buttocks. Generally, incisions are made in the buttocks crease. This allows the scars to be camouflaged perfectly. You should ask the surgeon about the placement and type of incisions.

Placing the Implant

The next step involves implant insertion in the buttocks. The surgeon will have to perform this step carefully so that the nerves and tissues don’t get damaged severely or injured. The cosmetic surgeon will make use of specialized custom techniques. Generally, cosmetic surgeons prefer placing the implants in the gluteal muscles.

This allows for adequate tissue coverage. It also prevents further complications and results are more natural in appearance. However, there is always the risk of nerve compression when the implants are set deep under the gluteal muscles. This is one of the reasons why your surgeon should take adequate measures for ensuring that the implants are not placed deep within the divide.

Using Sutures to Close Incisions

The final step in the buttock enhancement plastic surgery procedure is to close the incisions by suturing them. Your plastic surgeon will use layered sutures to close the incisions during this step. They may use skin glue, tape, or stitches for closing the incisions. The surgical wound be will be properly dressed and bandaged before you are moved out of the operating room.

Managing Pain After the Procedure

The severity of pain you feel will be determined by your tolerance for pain and the surgical technique used. The surgeon will prescribe certain pain medications for helping you manage the pain. Medications may be injected by the surgeon during surgery for providing 3 days of pain control.

You won’t need to depend on opioid medications after that. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas, and nearby areas for butt implants surgery.
