People who want a sexier derriere frequently choose buttock augmentation surgery with butt implants. When traditional methods such as diet and exercise have failed to produce the desired results, butt implant surgery is usually the best option. It is especially indicated for patients who are thin and do not have enough body fat for a fat transfer butt augmentation or Brazilian Butt Lift. Butt implants, like breast implants, are classified based on their material, size, shape, or style.
Cohesive gel implants vs. semi-solid implants
Breast implants were previously used to augment the buttocks. However, experts realized that breast implants filled with liquid or gel could leak or rupture when subjected to body weight stress. This resulted in the development of implants designed specifically for the buttocks. Butt implants are now made entirely of silicone. Butt implants' silicone has greatly improved in recent years, and they are now firmer, more durable, and have a more natural look and feel.
A butt implant's silicone content can be either a cohesive silicone gel or a semi-solid silicone rubber. Semi-solid implants are preferred because they are extremely durable and pose little risk of rupture or leakage. Because the buttocks are subjected to a great deal of stress and pressure on a daily basis, durability is critical.
Cohesive gel implants, on the other hand, are less durable than semi-solids. They also have an advantage in terms of comfort and flexibility. The silicone gel used in these implants is similar to that used in breast implants, but the outer shell or casing is much thicker to prevent rupture. The highly viscous gel will not leak if they do rupture. As long as the silicone implants are properly positioned in the buttock, both semi-solid and cohesive gel silicone implants produce excellent results.
Oval vs. Round (anatomic) implants
Aside from material, implants can also be classified based on whether they are round or oval in shape. Oval butt implants are also known as "anatomic" implants. Both round and oval implants are available in smooth and textured finishes. The shape or surface texture of an implant has no bearing on the outcome. Nonetheless, certain butt shapes benefit from the shape of the implant. Round implants, for example, are ideal for patients with a square-shaped buttock. Those with an elongated butt should opt for oval-shaped implants.
Using the correct size implants is one of the most important factors in achieving a perfect butt. Prior to the operation, your plastic surgeon will measure the size of your butt cheeks to ensure this. Using these anatomical measurements, the surgeon can select the size of the implant that will both augment the patient's butt and appear as natural as possible. A 690cc round-shaped implant is the largest butt implant available. Larger implants can be made to order, but they are more expensive and pose greater risks to patients. Butt tissues, particularly the gluteus maximus muscle, are not as expandable as pectoral muscles in the breast area. As a result, the size of the implant that can be placed beneath it is limited. Implants larger than 500cc cannot be fitted into the buttock muscles without complications such as implant exposure and the opening of a surgical wound.
Butt implants have been shown to be a safe and effective method of butt augmentation suitable for any healthy patient. Prior to undergoing implant surgery, it is also critical that the patient has realistic expectations and is willing to follow the recommendations of his or her board-certified cosmetic surgeon.
