Where is the Incision Made for Butt Implants?
Butt augmentation is one of the fastest growing aesthetic procedures in the United States the last few years. Initially butt augmentation was mostly performed by fat transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift), however this was not an option for many women that were too thin for a fat transfer procedure. Butt implant surgeries have become a great alternative to a Brazilian Butt lift for patient that are too thin or want more augmentation than is possible with fat transfer alone.
The butt augmentation with implants is performed with an incision in the gluteal crease (the cleft between your two butt cheeks). There are two ways that it is commonly performed, one is with a single midline incision and the second is with two curved incisions along each buttock. Both incisions are well hidden in the crease and covered in underwear or a bikini.
I personally like to use the two incisions for several reasons. The first is that the incisions can be placed in a manor that they accentuate the shape of the buttock-giving patients the amazing curvature to their butt. The incision is also hidden right at the curvature of each buttock (similar to an IMF incision for a breast augmentation).
Please be sure to discuss your butt implant surgery with your board certified plastic surgeon that performs a high volume of butt augmentation surgeries.
