Buttock Implant

BUTT IMPLANTS: SEXY BOOTY Buttock Implants (Butt Implants) is known in the plastic surgery world as Gluteal Augmentation or Gluteoplasty. This procedure is intended for both men and women who are self-conscious about their flat buttock shape and would like more curves and/or a well-balanced physique. Buttock Implants improve an individual’s buttock contour by creating a fuller shape. Buttock implant surgery is like breast implant surgery that uses artificial implants in between gluteal muscle to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks. This procedure does not aim to widen the hips.

Surgical/Procedure Name

Gluteal Augmentation/ Gluteoplasty

Common Name

Butt Implants

Surgical Procedure

During buttock augmentation, the surgeon places the implants through an incision made either where the cheek meets the back of the thigh or in the buttock crease (where scars are not as noticeable). The surgeon then creates a pocket large enough to place the implants. Your surgeon will advise you on the most appropriate procedure for you. Once placed, the surgeon confirms that each cheek is symmetrical and looks natural. The incisions are closed, and a compression garment is applied.

Hospital Admission

Butt Implants requires two to three nights hospital admission. The operation will only take two to three hours and can be done in general anesthesia.

Pre Operative Care

In order to make sure that you can undergo Buttock Implants as safely as possible, the following preparatory activities are performed: • Extensive workup to rule out any potentially preventable problems. • A detailed history and physical checkup which includes vital signs, food and drug allergies, supplement intake, and current medication (prescription and over the counter) • Checkup for any major medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease. • Avoid aspirin and any medication containing aspirin or brufen for two weeks before surgery. • Avoid smoking for two weeks as smoking can affect body’s reaction to the anaesthetic and slow down the healing process. More importantly, communication with the surgeon is very vital. Through communication, the patient and the surgeon can clearly discuss the desired look so that he or she can determine with you what can realistically be achieved.

Post Operative Care

After Butt Implants surgery, the patient may experience some pain associated with the surgery. When the procedure is completed, a patient is advised of the following:

• Pain. Butt implants will have a moderate amount of postoperative discomfort and will feel very tight right after the operation.
• Recovery Position. Whilst in bed a patient is recommended to lie on their tummy or in a prone position to help reduce the strain on the buttock area.
• Medications. Prescriptions for pain medication that the patient will take as needed, and antibiotics that will be taken for several days to decrease chances of infection.
• Swelling. Significant swelling will occur in the first few days making your buttocks feel even tighter.
• Post op dressings. The surgeon will place a taped dressing/bandages on your lower back to cover the incision. The tapes are to be left in place to serve both as a dressing and reinforcement of the incision.
• Recovery. You will probably be able to resume exercise and normal physical activities within a month or two after any residual soreness has subsided. Whilst you still have butt implants please avoid puncture or injection in the buttock area.

Risks and Complications

Risks are inherent to any surgical procedure. But no worries, all precautions are taken by Plastic Surgery Phuket’s surgeons to avoid these risks.

Here are the most common risks of this surgery:
• Swelling
• Bruising
• Bleeding
• Infection
• Excess Fluid
• Scarring
• Capsular contracture (implant begins to tighten and thicken)
• Loss of some sensation in the region.


Buttock augmentation patients typically can return to quiet, low-intensity work within a week. Full recovery may take several months.
