BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION WITH PROSTHESIS

Buttocks augmentation with prosthesis is not the most popular method these days, even if the techniques and implants have evolved, with a simpler surgery and easier recovery, and with a more pleasant and natural outcome.

  • Biconvex gluteal prosthesis is invisible and impalpable.
  • Quick surgery, more reliable than years ago due to numerous innovations.

BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION WITH PROSTHESIS OVERVIEW

This information sheet is issued by Dr Vincent Nguyen plastic surgeon in Paris, familiar with buttocks augmentation with prosthesis.

It provides all the information about the surgery, scars, recovery, before and after comparison photographs, Social Security coverage and the costs of the buttocks augmentation procedure.

Why augment buttocks size?

The projection, the curve and the size of buttocks are very important in the beauty of the butt. They depend on the size of the gluteus maximus muscle but also of the shape of the lower back. The female ideal of beauty is often associated with a slim waist and rounded and shaped buttocks. Round and firm buttocks accentuate a youthful feminine figure.

Flat and sagging buttocks may cause confidence issues and even psychological issues for some patients.

Sometimes in the case of sagging buttocks, a butt lift is required.

What is the indication of buttocks augmentation with prosthesis?

Buttock augmentation with prosthesis is required when the patient wants to enlarge her buttocks in a significant way and doesn’t have enough body fat to undergo an augmentation with fat transfer called Brazilian butt (buttock lifting without scars).

THE PRINCIPLES OF BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION WITH PROSTHESIS

What’s the purpose of buttock augmentation with prosthesis?
The purpose of this procedure is to increase the volume of small or flat buttocks with prosthesis to shape, lift, and enhance the butt.

 

What implants or prosthesis are used in buttock augmentation surgery?
Buttock implants look like breast implants but there is a huge difference between them. The shape is different and buttock implants in France are made of semi solid (rubber like) silicone that has a consistency near to a real buttock.
Buttock implants have improved a lot over the years. They have been proven safe to use.
Buttock implants used in France have undergone several safety tests and are controlled by precise and strict standards: EC marking (European Community) ANSM authorization (National Health Agency in charge of Medication and Health product Security).
They are more reliable with a much more resistant shell and a cohesive gel that doesn’t spread in case of rupture.
There is also a wide variety of shapes that can adapt to different patients and morphologies. Due to these many choices in shapes and volumes the outcome may approach the patient’s wishes and morphology in the most effective way.

THE STEPS OF THE DIAPER AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE

BEFORE BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION WITH PROSTHESIS:

  • Two preoperative consultations with a board-certified plastic surgeon will be conducted as well as a consultation with an anesthetist.
  • Before and after comparison photographs will be taken.
  • A buttock augmentation compression garment will be prescribed.
  • The preoperative instructions are as follow:
    • Quit smoking a minimum of one month before the surgery to one month after the surgery to reduce any complication and avoid necrosis risk.
    • Stop birth control pill one month before the surgery to avoid increased risk of thromboembolism.
    • Discontinue any anti-platelet or blood-thinning medication 15 days before the surgery.

BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION WITH PROSTHESIS PROCEDURE:

  • This surgery is performed under general anesthesia.
  • It lasts about 1 hour.
  • A comprehensive garment is donned at the end of the surgery.
  • Dr Vincent Nguyen uses the most advanced surgical techniques to avoid drains and performs the surgery himself on both buttocks.

It takes 2 to 3 months for final results to appear and to see the full effects but the physical change is obvious from the first day after surgery. The augmentation enhances the shape and the size of the buttocks. The scars are undetectable as they are hidden. Enhancement of the buttocks resculpts the silhouette and creates a positive psychological effect.

AFTER BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION WITH PROSTHESIS

  • You may feel pain the days following the surgery depending on the size of the implants but it will be managed through pain medication.
  • Swelling and bruising are expected and you may feel discomfort while walking the days following the surgery.
  • You can’t sit on your buttocks or lay on your back for at least two weeks after the surgery not to put pressure on the sutures and compromise the outcome.
  • Prolonged standing might be helpful the day after surgery to make bruising go down the thighs.
  • You are allowed to sit on the back of your thighs only to use the restroom.
  • You can return to work around 10 to 15 days after surgery.
  • You may resume physical activities and sports 1 to 2 months after surgery.
  • Follow-up consultations will be planned with Dr Nguyen (1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after the procedure).

BUTTOCKS AUGMENTATION WITH PROSTHESIS SURGERY PRICE AND COSTS

  • As Buttocks Augmentation with Prosthesis Surgery is an esthetic procedure, it is not covered by Social Security or Health Insurance Company.
  • The costs may vary depending on the patient, the size of the prosthesis, other combined procedures (liposuction, lipofilling, …), the location of the surgery, the length of the surgery and other related expenses.
  • It can vary from … to … (see all the costs of esthetic procedures on this website)
  • Make sure to find a board-certified plastic surgeon competent in buttock augmentation with prosthesis surgery and silhouette enhancement who will evaluate your needs, discuss your options and guide you to achieve the best natural results.

BUTTOCKS AUGMENTATION WITH PROSTHESIS FAQs

What scars does a buttock augmentation with prosthesis leave?

Depending on the technique used, one to two incisions are done in the gluteal fold between the two buttocks. The prosthesis are then put within the gluteus maximus muscle.

Can a buttock augmentation with prosthesis be combined with another surgery?

In case of excess fat (“saddle bags”, “love-handles”) it can be combined with liposuction.

Is there an alternative to buttock augmentation with prosthesis?

If the patient wishes to get rid of excess fat in other areas of her body (“saddle bags”, “love-handles”, stomach …), it may be suctioned and reinjected into the buttocks. The procedure is called Brazilian butt lift, buttocks lipofilling, buttocks lifting without scars or autologous fat transfer.

Will my buttocks be sensitive after surgery?

You may feel numbness in your buttocks 6 to 12 month after surgery but it will disappear progressively.

Can buttock implants move, shift around under the skin and deform the shape of the buttocks?

It may happen but this is very rare and less common than before. Since the implants are within the muscle (intramuscular), they are invisible. Moreover, with a biconvex prosthesis (convex on both sides) the shape of the buttock can’t be altered even if it turns over.
