Preparing for your surgery



The incision is made in the natural crease of natal cleft or few centimetre’s parallel to it. Working through the incision, the doctor creates a pocket large enough to place the implant and inserts it either under the gluteus maximus muscle, or on top of it. The implants are placed above the sitting area of your buttocks, preventing you from sitting on them and reduce the possibility of the implants shifting

Recovery and Results:
After undergoing surgery, you can expect some pain and discomfort. Bruising may also occur. You will be prescribed medication to ease the pain. You will not be able to lie on their backs for about two weeks after surgery. While recovering, you may also be required to wear a compression garment to provide support. You may notice a big difference in the appearance of your buttocks after surgery. However, some of it will be attributed to the swelling that occurs after surgery. When the swelling subsides, the true results will be more evident.

You will be able to return to work within two weeks after surgery. Recovery times vary from patient to patient. Butt implants feel natural and can withstand pressure while sitting. While enhancing the volume of the buttock region, butt implants can also address looseness of skin to a certain extent.

Duration of Surgery: 2-3 hrs

Hospital Stay: Day Care Surgery

P.S: Scar less Butt Augmentation Using Autologous Fat Transfer

Buttock augmentation can also be done by using one's own fat. Adequate fat stores are obviously necessary to do this procedure. Fat is harvested by liposuction technique tailored to this need, processed and injected in many layers into the buttocks

Results and Recovery

Tummy tuck results in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with an individual body type and weight. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. The final results may be initially obscured by swelling and your inability to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete.

Activities: You will be able to perform routine activities within 1-2 weeks. Strenuous exercises such as jogging, swimming can be done after 8- 12 weeks.
