Butt Implant Placement
Butt implant placement takes about one to two hours, depending on whether the implants are placed in conjunction with a fat transfer. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. Once the patient is sedated, Dr. Horn creates an incision on the midline in between the buttocks. The implants are placed in a pocket within the gluteal muscles, which provides a completely natural look and feel.
If fat transfer is required, small incisions are made at the donor site and the tissue is removed via liposuction. The fat is then purified before being transferred to the buttocks. Most patients can return to work within three weeks of surgery, though a full recovery can take up to six weeks. For most patients, final results become visible about three months after the procedure as swelling subsides.
