Women and men who would like a better contour and a firmer appearance to their bodies may benefit from a buttocks augmentation procedure. The plastic surgeons at The Peer Group perform butt augmentations at our plastic surgery center in Florham Park, New Jersey. Implants are designed to enhance the form and add shape to the buttocks, and make the area look more toned and defined. The implants our plastic surgeons use are typically made of silicone elastomer material that has proven effective for butt implant procedures. During the consultation, the surgeon will discuss the various implant options, and also evaluate if a fat transfer may be a preferred method.
What to Expect@headingTag>
During your initial consultation, the current shape of the buttocks will be examined, as well as the skin tone of the patient, and the available fat tissue that can be transferred from another area of the body. The plastic surgeon will ask you how you wish your buttocks to look, and will go over the surgical options in detail. During butt augmentation surgery, the buttocks are reshaped by placing soft silicone implants under the muscles of the buttocks, on top of the pelvic bone. The various implant types will be discussed during your consultation.

After the Surgery@headingTag>
The recovery following butt augmentation surgery will vary for patients depending on the type of procedure that was performed. Patients will need to rest for a couple of days to allow the swelling to subside. Any pain or discomfort can be managed with prescription pain medication. During the first couple of weeks, patients will need to avoid sitting or placing direct pressure on the buttock. A soft cushion will help if sitting is needed. Most patients are able to return to work after the first week, and exercise can be resumed within six weeks.
Butt Augmentation FAQs@headingTag>
Do They Look Fake?@headingTag>
If the implants are placed correctly, they will look and feel natural. It is important to find a reputable, skilled surgeon to perform the surgery who has expertise with placing butt implants. Done correctly, butt implants look like you have spent hours at the gym!
Fat Transfer or Implants?@headingTag>
Both techniques are common among cosmetic surgeons and both achieve good results. The biggest factor is on how long you wish the enhancement to last. Implants are long lasting and may be better if you want the look to stay for a long time. Fat transfers do not last forever. In fact, some of the fat used during this process will be reabsorbed into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages with your surgeon and come to an agreement based on your aesthetic goals and anatomy.
Can I Sit?@headingTag>
Yes. Patients are able to resume sitting and doing all of the things they did before surgery. It may take up to three months for all of the swelling to subside and for the implants to take on a natural position, look, and feel. It is common for patients to have some anxiety about sitting or how much pressure to place on the buttocks. This should not be a major concern because the implants are placed higher on the buttock so they will not interfere with most sitting positions.
What If I Gain Weight?@headingTag>
Obviously, the best long-term results will be in those patients who maintain a healthy goal weight. Gaining weight after this surgery will compromise the surgery results because during weight gain, fat goes towards the butt first. This will hide the effects of the surgery. By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, the results will continue to last.
