Are Buttock Implants Very Painful?

One of the most common questions that patients ask me is if buttock augmentation with implants will be painful. The short answer is that it depends on the type of butt augmentation surgery a person has done.

Like breast augmentations the implant can be placed above or below the muscle. When the implant is placed below the muscle or in the middle of the muscle patients can have a significant amount of pain after their surgery, as the muscle is being stretched and pulled.

My personal technique is what is called sub-fascial. The implant is placed above the muscle but under the fascia. The fascia is the strong covering around the muscle. The benefit of this technique is that the fascia still holds the implant in place and decrease the chance of scar tissue like it would beneath the muscle. However since it is above the muscle patients have less pain and less likely hood of complications that are associated with sub-muscular placement of butt implants.

Please discuss your butt augmentation with board certified plastic surgeon.
