There are many patients who are curious as to whether they can undergo butt implant surgery and liposuction at the same time. The good news is that you can absolutely undergo both procedures as a combined surgery. However, you will have to endure increased inconvenience when it comes to sitting, resting, and sleeping during the recovery period, which may range from 2-3 weeks.
The buttock implant surgery increases the size of your butt and makes your derriere shapelier by placing artificial devices inside them. The artificial implants are made of semi-solid silicone material and are placed inside via incisions. Patients who have smaller or flatter butts and desire to get bigger use this procedure to get aesthetically appealing buttocks.
On the other hand, the liposuction is a body contouring procedure. It is normally used to rid the body of excess, stubborn fat pockets that do not respond to diet and exercise. Stubborn fat pockets can have negative effects on your body aesthetics. The liposuction procedure involves the removal of fat deposits via a tiny, hollow tube called a cannula. When the fat pockets are removed, the body becomes contoured and aesthetically pleasing.
There are many patients who have smaller, flatter, poorly shaped, or uneven butts, besides having stubborn fat deposits in different localized areas of the body, such as the abdomen, sides, love handles, thighs, etc. For such patients, a combination of butt implant surgery and liposuction can deliver effective outcomes. Butt implant surgery will add projection and enhance the booties, whereas liposuction will contour the areas where the stubborn fat pockets exist.
The butt and abdomen are the most important areas of the body in terms of aesthetics. An improvement in these areas will enhance your overall body profile and aesthetics. Your body will appear pleasing, curvaceous, and voluptuous.
On the downside, you will experience more discomforts and inconvenience. Patients who undergo butt implant surgery are required to avoid sitting, resting, and sleeping on the back as it can apply undue pressure to the butt during the first two weeks following the operation. The patients are instructed to sleep and rest on their front and sides instead.
When you get liposuction along with butt implant surgery, you are instructed to avoid using your front and back for resting and sleeping since both areas have incisions. You will be left with one option: sleeping and resting on your sides for at least the first 5-7 days. After the first week, you may gradually resume resting and sleeping on your front. However, you need to be very careful.
Also, you may experience more pain and discomfort during the first 24-72 hours following the combined procedure. The recovery period may also be prolonged, and you’ll get instructions for being even more watchful when it comes to physical movements during the recovery. In order to have a smooth recovery and ensure better aesthetic outcomes, be sure to follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions.
