Butt Implants

Butt implants are very similar to breast implants, but they are much denser. Because butt implants must withstand the weight of the person and the pressure of walking and exercise, their silicone gel must contain a high concentration of material and cohesiveness


Butt implants are a relatively simple cosmetic surgery. The plastic surgeon makes a cut of five to eight inches between the buttocks to form a pocket where the implant is inserted.

The implant is placed between the muscles and fat to help heal the implant in place. Depending on your surgical plan, liposuction cannulas may be introduced first to remove any excess fat from the hips, further shaping the buttocks.

The volume added varies from person to person, but with implants, patients can receive a size increase of up to 500 ml.This procedure takes between one and two hours and is performed under general anesthesia.

The small incisions made in the depression areas between the buttocks will leave almost no visible scar


A consultation with a Mia Aesthetics surgeon is essential in deciding whether or not butt implants are right for you. Butt implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. Your surgeon can go over all the options with you and help you determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Butt implant patients can go home the same day as the operation wearing a special bandage that will stay in place for three to five days. After surgery, mobility will be difficult and restricted, requiring several days of rest.

Patients must avoid sitting directly on the buttocks or lying on their back for at least three weeks. The sutures in butt implant incisions are absorbable, so they will not require removal.

Bruising, swelling and some numbness for a few days is normal after receiving butt implants and will disappear gradually. Wearing compression garments will help minimize swelling post-surgery.

Your Mia Aesthetics surgeon will fully prepare you for what to expect during the recovery process and can teach you massage techniques that will help reduce inflammation. Analgesics will also help with inflammation and pain, and most people return to normal activity within a month after surgery.

All exercises and physical activities should be stopped for at least three weeks post-surgery. You’ll see the initial results of your butt implant surgery immediately, but final results won’t emerge until about 6 months after surgery, depending on the patient’s body and tissue-healing rate. Massage and ultrasound therapy may also be recommended as a surgical follow-up to prevent unevenness or wrinkles and reduce swelling.

Frequently Asked Questions

Although infrequent, the most common risks include bleeding, infection and scarring. Other complications can include loss of some sensation in the region or capsular contracture. Capsular contracture is a condition that occurs when fibrosis of connective tissue forms around the implant, causing hardness and defining implant edges that can be seen or restrict movement.

Capsular contracture occurs infrequently, but in severe cases, the implant may need to be removed or replaced.

Butt implants with or without liposuction usually take between one to two hours.
All patients undergoing general anesthesia will require basic blood and urine tests as well as a pregnancy test for women.
Our anesthesia staff will ensure you are comfortable, pain-free, and asleep throughout the procedure. After surgery, any pain or discomfort you may experience will be controlled through medication and usually subsides within a matter of days.

It depends on the extent of your procedure and your individual rate of healing. Some patients tolerate surgical procedures better than others, and any past procedures you’ve had can give you an idea of how quickly you will heal. On average, most patients can return to work within a week to ten days.

In most cases, you’ll have to rest on your stomach to let the region heal. After about a week, you’ll be able to sit, but it will likely feel as though you’re sitting on a wallet or padding, even though the implant placement makes it unlikely you’ll ever actually “sit” on the implant itself.The surgeon can guide you on the best ways to achieve rest while you are recovering from surgery.

Yes, but they probably won’t be noticeable. Your surgeon will keep incisions as minimal as possible and hide them in the natural lines and creases of your skin. The scars will fade over time and become barely noticeable.
It depends on the type and size of the implant, but generally, implants only weigh a few ounces each.
Butt implants do not usually leak or rupture. Gluteal implants sold for use in the United States are generally made of a solid silicone matrix material, so there is no fluid inside of them. They can be carved by the surgeon for custom fitting and sizing.

Water-based implants are believed to have a slightly higher risk of rupture, but all butt implant patients are advised to avoid intramuscular injections in the buttocks to avoid an accidental puncture.

Butt implants can enhance and firm the natural curves of patients who are not happy with the shape and fullness of their buttocks. Ideal candidates for buttock augmentation are men or women who want to raise, enhance and define their buttocks.

Patients who are at their ideal weight can undergo this procedure to contour areas that are difficult to control, shape and enhance through diet and exercise alone.
