Butt implants or butt augmentation is a commonly requested procedure at our Raleigh, N.C. plastic surgery center. Over the past ten years, this procedure has become increasingly popular worldwide. Butt augmentation with implants is a procedure that reshapes and enhances the gluteal area, providing an uplifted and shapelier buttock profile.
Butt augmentation with implants can be performed on male and female patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their gluteal area. Some patients may have buttocks that are too small for their frame and may desire a more balanced look. Some people may find the buttock shape too flat or square and may desire a more curvy, youthful appearance. Dr. Christopher Morea has more than eighteen years of experience as a board-certified plastic surgeon in Raleigh, N.C., and has performed hundreds of buttock augmentation procedures.
Butt augmentation surgery is performed using a shaped, silicone implant placed through an incision hidden inside the natural buttock crease. We place the implants under the muscle fascia layer of the buttocks. Implants come in several shapes and sizes.
Dr. Morea will evaluate you and help you choose the implant size that will give you the most attractive result. Butt augmentation surgery is a three-hour outpatient procedure that is performed in our fully accredited AAAASF certified surgery suite. Dr. Morea’s team of Registered Nurses will care for you in our recovery room before your discharge home.
Butt implant patients will be instructed to wear a compression garment for several weeks following surgery to obtain the most favorable results. You should take care to avoid direct pressure on the augmented buttock for two weeks following the surgery. Patients should lie on the abdomen or side when sleeping and to stand rather than sit for two weeks after surgery.
During your first consultation, you will meet personally with Dr. Morea to discuss your concerns and goals regarding buttock implants. Following your exam, you will have the opportunity to view our library containing hundreds of before and after photos of actual butt augmentation patients from our practice. You will have the opportunity to discuss your options about size and shape of buttock implants.
Dr. Morea will give you a personal tour of his Raleigh plastic surgery practice and answer any questions you have. He will give you a written quote that customizes the buttock implant procedure for you.
There will be two incisions just outside of the gluteal crease which can be concealed by most swimwear and underwear.
I allow my patients to sit 15 minutes out of every hour one week following surgery. You can increase this by 15 minutes per hour each week following surgery.
You may begin to exercise one week following surgery provided you adhere to the guideline for activity which we will provide to you.
Your results will be apparent immediately following your surgery. Some swelling will persist for two to three months following your surgery.
Patients can return to work one week following buttock augmentation with implants as long as they continue to follow our instructions regarding sitting.
During your consultation I will examine you and measure your buttocks in both the horizontal and vertical dimensions to determine which size implant can be placed.
