Dr Viral Desai has some advice for women who want hourglass figures with butt implants

What is the aesthetic procedure, a butt implant, all about?

Buttock augmentation or a butt implant involves the surgical insertion of artificial body implants into a patient’s buttocks to create a larger, shapely, and more sensuous rear end.

What are the targeted problems for which it can be used?

Butt implants are a popular plastic surgery procedure among those who wish to enhance the appearance, shape, and size of their rear ends. Patients who have underdeveloped buttocks can achieve a more proportionate figure with butt implants. Women who wish to achieve an ‘hourglass’  figure or are unhappy with the size of their buttocks can benefit from  butt implants

What is the science behind this treatment?

Butt implants, which are made of semi solid silicone, are inserted through an incision in the fold beneath each buttock cheek and placed between the muscle and the bone.  The size of the implants will depend on your body shape and desired fullness. Using silicone implants can add significant dimension and contour to your backside and smoothen out the skin. They can fill the void of lax skin and reduce cellulite by stretching out the skin.

How often do you recommend your clients for the treatment?

Each patient has different wishes and requirements. On consultation with the patient the surgeon will determine which operative technique and which prostheses will deliver the best results for them. A butt implant is generally for life and only to be removed if there are any complications or the patient wishes to.

Can a butt Implant be combined with any other treatment? If yes, then what are the benefits?

Many doctors combine fat grafting with implants but I would definitely not perform fat grafting and butt implants at the same time. Fat graft survival will depend on having maximum blood flow to keep the fat cells alive. If you place an implant at the same time, you will be diminishing the amount of blood flowing to the areas of fat placement because many of these blood vessels are cut when we put in butt implants. Also, the pressure from the butt implants will diminish the amount of blood flow to the fat grafts.

Are there any side-effects of this treatment?

Potential side effects are rare in the skilled experienced hands of a buttock implant surgeon. Every surgery involve a few risks and complications. Surgical risks include infection, bleeding, nerve and/or muscle damage, slippage and asymmetry.

What is the time taken for the procedure?

It usually takes two to two-and-a-half hours.

What are the pre and post-treatment measures to be followed?

Pre procedure

Get a blood test.

Stop smoking and drinking alcohol three days prior.

Avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding.

Post procedure care

Take all medication as directed.

Do not lay flat on your butt.

Keep the back elevated on two or three pillows or in a recliner for the first 48-72 hours. Also keep one or two pillows under the knees.

Do not sit directly on buttocks for extended periods of time for two weeks.

No lifting heavy weights  for at least three weeks after surgery.

No exercise until cleared by the doctor.

How do you educate your client about the procedure?

During the consultation, the surgeon will discuss with the patient about their need and expectations to gain a good understanding of the results they are hoping to see after surgery. The patient will be asked about the texture and shape she is looking for. It is important to remember that butt size should be in proportion to the body shape. There are factors such as personal preferences which need to be considered to decide which size is best.

How prevalent is this procedure in India?

The butt implant has become more popular in the past few years as people have been influenced by models and actresses and their enhanced derriere; Jennifer Lopez singer, song writer is well known for her songs and equally for her famous backside.

What is the future of butt implants in India?

Indian women generally have a sizeable butt and yet with the new generation of women and exposure to Western culture and changing body shapes Indian women and sometimes men too are conscious about how they look and feel and that includes their behinds. The future for butt implants is positive and may likely also grow as people become more and more conscious about their overall persona.
