What Butt Implant is Best for Me?
This is a great question as selecting the proper implant is very important. There are several ways to go about selecting the proper implant for your butt augmentation.
First of all while there is a limited number of butt implant sizes, there is still a range to choose from for the surgery. It is important that the implant fits the size of your buttock. Having an implant that is an appropriate size will help limit any problems post-operatively and will give you the best results possible.
Secondly I like for patients to send me wish pictures so that I can help guide them to the implant that will help them achieve those goals. It also allows us to have a talk about what are realistic goals from the surgery.
Thirdly, I typically use round implants as I feel that they help add volume to the hips and buttock. It gives patients a great shape even if they do not have sufficient fat to augment their hips. A round implant also avoid the issues with implant rotation that can happen with shaped implants.
In my practice the most common implant I use is a 548cc silicone round implant. There are larger and smaller implants depending on the individual needs of each patient.
Make sure that you talk to a board certified plastic surgeon that performs a high volume of implants about your butt implant surgery.
