It’s very difficult to dramatically change the appearance of your buttocks by exercising more and eating better. Even if you spend every evening in the gym, you might not be able to achieve fuller, more attractive buttocks on your own. Fortunately, you can improve the appearance of this part of your body by receiving butt implants from the Plastic & Cosmetic Center of South Texas in San Antonio, Texas.
What Do Butt Implants Feel Like?
Receiving butt implants in San Antonio is a fantastic way to enhance the shape and size of your buttocks. Since we will customize the shape, size, and other aspects of your implants to match your goals and body type, the results of your cosmetic procedure will vary.
A Natural Feeling for Butt Implants
In general, your new butt implants will feel firm and toned. In fact, your implants might feel similar to the toned muscles that you would achieve by working out regularly.
Adjusting to Your Implants
During your recovery period, you will probably feel your implants when you sit down. As you adjust to your implants and your tissues continue to heal, you should become used to your enhanced buttocks. Over time, you will stop noticing your implants when you sit down. At this point, your implants will feel like a natural part of your body.
How Should I Prepare for My Procedure?
You’ll need to have an initial consultation at our San Antonio office before you receive your implants. During our meeting, we will examine your buttocks and review your medical history. After you schedule your procedure, we will give you detailed instructions about how to prepare for the implantation process. For example, we may instruct you to avoid taking aspirin and certain types of herbal supplements.
In addition to changing your medications, you might need to quit smoking for at least six weeks. Further, we will probably advise you to ask a close friend or relative to stay with you during the night after you receive your procedure. This person can assist you with chores and other tasks while your buttocks are recovering.
What Will the Implantation Process Be Like?
You’ll usually receive general anesthesia before we begin the process of inserting your implants. This medication will allow you to remain unconscious during the implantation process.
Inserting Your Implants
After the anesthesia has started to work, we will make temporary markings on your buttocks. These markings will guide us during the next phase of your procedure.
We will use these markings to create incisions in your buttocks. We will typically place your implants within your gluteal muscles. This is called an intramuscular placement. Placing your implants within your muscles will improve the contour of your buttocks and provide you with natural-looking, attractive improvements in this part of your body.
Typically, we will perform liposuction during your procedure. Liposuction is a sophisticated technique that suctions fat out of your body. Removing some of the extra fat around your buttocks will make this part of your body look more contoured and attractive.
Completing Your Procedure
After we have positioned your implants, we will close your incisions. We may also put you into a compression garment. You will wear this garment during the initial phase of your recovery.
How Long Will My Recovery Period Last?
Typically, it will take about six to 12 months to fully recover from your procedure. During this period, you will need to make some adjustments to your usual routine.
Resting at Home
You’ll probably need to spend about 14 days resting in your home after we insert your implants. You can use prescription or over-the-counter medications to stay comfortable during this time.
Protecting Your Buttocks
In addition to taking time off from your job or other responsibilities, you should not sit on your buttocks during the next two weeks. To accomplish this goal, you will need to avoid driving a car during this time. Sitting down can put too much pressure on your buttocks and make it more difficult for your incisions to heal.
After your buttocks have started to heal, we may instruct you to use a special pillow when you are sitting down. After about six weeks, you’ll probably be able to stop using your pillow and begin to sit in a more normal position.
Wearing a Compression Garment
You might need to use a compression garment for a couple of weeks. This garment will help the tissues in your treatment area heal in a quick, efficient fashion.
What Are the Benefits of This Procedure?
There are a number of reasons why you might benefit from using implants to enhance your buttocks.
It Works for Thin People
When you started researching cosmetic procedures, you probably learned about a technique called a Brazilian butt lift, or BBL. This technique uses your own fat cells to enhance your buttocks. If you are a thin person who doesn’t have a lot of extra fat, you might not be able to receive a BBL.
Fortunately, you don’t need a large amount of extra fat to benefit from implants. In fact, if you are a thin person who is interested in achieving larger buttocks, you will probably be a good candidate for this procedure.
It Can Be Customized
We offer implants in a variety of different shapes and sizes. When you have your initial consultation at our office in San Antonio, we can give you more information about the different implants that we can use to improve your buttocks.
Many types of cosmetic procedures will not create permanent changes in your breasts, face, and other areas of your body. In contrast, your implants are designed to produce lasting improvements in your buttocks. Unlike other types of implants used in cosmetic procedures, butt implants do not leak or rupture. As a result, you probably won’t replace your implants during your lifetime.
When Will I See the Final Changes in My Buttocks?
After we insert your implants into your body, your buttocks will look rounder and fuller. However, your tissues will take some time to adjust to your implants. In general, you will probably see the final changes in your buttocks within about six to 12 months.
Can I Use Other Methods to Improve My Buttocks?
At the Plastic & Cosmetic Center of South Texas, we can use a wide variety of different techniques to enhance your buttocks.
Brazilian Butt Lift
During a Brazilian butt lift, we will use your own fat cells to reshape and enhance your buttocks. We will begin this procedure by inserting an anesthetic solution into your body. This solution will numb your tissues and protect your fat cells. Next, we will remove some of the excess fat on your hips and stomach. After we insert this fat into your buttocks, we will use a machine to smooth this fat and give you rounded, more attractive buttocks.
Traditional Butt Lift
A traditional butt lift is designed to remove sagging skin without enhancing the size of your buttocks. If you have lost a large amount of weight after you followed a new diet program or received a gastric bypass, you might be a good candidate for this technique. In fact, it’s common to receive this procedure in connection with a total body lift.
During a traditional butt lift, we will make incisions into your buttocks. Next, we will reposition the skin in your treatment area and remove excess tissues from your buttocks. We will use sutures or stitches to keep your skin and tissues in place during your recovery period.
Choosing a Good Technique
During your first meeting at our San Antonio office, we will give you more details about the benefits of these procedures. We will help you choose a suitable enhancement technique for your buttocks. For example, if you don’t have a lot of extra fat on your body, we may advise you to use implants to improve the size of your buttocks.
Can I Use Cosmetic Procedures to Improve Other Parts of My Body?
We can use cosmetic procedures to enhance your breasts, face, and many other features on your body.
Receiving a breast augmentation in San Antonio is a good way to increase the size of your chest or improve the symmetry of your breasts. For example, a breast augmentation can improve the appearance of your breasts after you went through pregnancy or lost a large amount of weight. In addition, we can use implants to reconstruct your breasts after you received a mastectomy.
We can use saline or silicone implants to enhance your breasts. Saline implants are made of a silicone shell that we will fill with a special saltwater solution. Alternatively, we can use implants that are filled with silicone. We can place these implants above or under the muscles in your chest.
A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that can correct wrinkles, creases, and other lines on your face. In addition to fixing your lines and creases, we can improve drooping skin and fat deposits in this part of your body. This procedure is very effective, and you will look up to 15 years younger after you have finished recovering from your facelift.
We frequently combine this procedure with brow lifts, rhinoplasties, and eyelid procedures. Receiving multiple procedures at one time can produce dramatic improvements in your face.
A rhinoplasty is a type of aesthetic procedure that can reshape or reduce the size of your nose. We can also correct humps in your nose and improve birth defects that make it more difficult for you to breathe. It’s also common to receive this cosmetic procedure after your nose is injured in an accident.
Although we will use customized techniques during your procedure, we are likely to begin by making a small incision at the bottom of your nose. We will use this incision to access the structures inside your nose. We can fix asymmetries, improve the cartilage in your nose, and reshape this facial feature. After we have finished improving this part of your face, we will close up your incision and stabilize your nose.
