When it comes to the appearance of the buttocks, it is true that the genetic inheritance has an important role. It should be enough to have just a look at the Kardashian sisters to understand that if big butts run in your family, chances are you will get them as well. Exercise and diets aren’t overly effective when it comes to increasing the size of the buttocks. It is true that for people who exercise the buttocks routinely, they will become more toned and firmer, but it can’t improve the projection or shape of the buttocks considerably, especially if you are not going to the gym every day. The best method to increase the size of the buttocks in a safe manner is to get butt implant surgery. The procedure has been performed for quite a number of years now. Silicone implants have FDA approval, so make sure to get the procedure done by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon in a hospital or other accredited medical facility to get the best possible results and avoid complications. You should know that this procedure, just like any other type of plastic surgery, is associated with certain risks and complications that can be reduced significantly if you are deemed as an eligible candidate. The contraindications of the procedure, as well as the other details of the surgical plan and the pre-operative period, will be discussed with the plastic surgeon during the initial consultation. During this consultation, you will also find out what tests are recommended to be taken before the procedure is performed. The blood tests necessary before butt implant surgery are usual blood tests such as a complete blood count (known as CBC). This test will tell the plastic surgeon if you suffer from conditions such as anemia, hepatitis or HIV. Other blood tests will be performed to determine the coagulation factor as this is extremely important for the plastic surgeon to know. If there is an issue with blood coagulation, this could cause severe complications such as blood clots after the procedure or excessive bleeding during or immediately after surgery. You will also be tested for diabetes and other health conditions that are contraindications for the procedure. It is important to take the blood tests, as well as the other tests that your plastic surgeon might recommend such as an electrocardiogram and urine test to make sure you are a good candidate for the surgery and fit to undergo it. Also make sure to tell your plastic surgeon if you have had problems or health conditions related to the blood, heart, or lungs. If you are suffering from allergies, this is another thing you should never fail to mention. These are all important for your well-being and to have a fast and smooth recovery after the procedure.
