The recovery time for butt implants in my practice is very similar to that of a Brazilian Butt Lift. I have patients avoid sitting for two weeks as the implants need time to heal into their proper positions.
Many times butt implants are combined with fat transfer, if this is the case patients still need to avoid sitting for two weeks but tend to have a little more soreness in in the areas where the liposuction was performed.
Patients still wear a specialized garment after the butt implant procedure. The garment is similar to a bra for the breasts. It just supports the area and makes things as comfortable as possible for patients after their surgery.
Please discuss you surgery with your board certified plastic surgeon that performs a high volume of butt augmentation surgeries.
Butt implants have become extremely popular over the past few years. They have been used in two groups of patients, one is in patients that don’t have enough fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift or want more augmentation than is possible with a Brazilian Butt Lift alone.
Butt implants just like any implant can be felt at first. The implant does make the butt slightly firmer, however most of my patients want to firm up their butt a little.
My patients have said that the get used to the implants and it just becomes part of them. After the initial period of not sitting to allow the implants to heal they can sit and do activities as they did before the surgery.
I have asked my patients if their partners can feel them or if they get in the way during intercourse. My patients have said that they partner can typically feel that the butt is a little firmer but that they have not had any complaints. They also have said that it has not kept them doing anything they want in that regard. They have said that the hardest part is trying to keep their partners hands off them during the first initially healing time.
I hope this helps! Please consult your board certified plastic surgeon about your butt implant surgery.
