Infection after butt implants surgery

08th Apr 2017

Introduction

For some people, lifelong happiness and satisfaction can be found in correcting certain physical inadequacies. Several women want to have bigger breasts while others would like to make their wrinkles disappear. There are also women who desire fuller, rounder buttocks that will look good in any type of clothing. It is a well-known fact that gluteal implants have a higher risk of complications compared to other buttock enhancement procedures. Among the most common potential complications arising from butt implant surgery are infections. Infection can occur due to multiple causes, and the location of the incision is one of the most significant.

Placement of the incisions in butt implant surgery

Buttock augmentation with butt implants presents greater hazards in comparison to other augmentation procedures because this intervention is performed on an area that is intensively used in day-to-day activities (walking, sitting down, etc.). Some of the possible unfavorable outcomes of this surgical procedure involve implant displacement which imparts an asymmetric appearance to the buttocks; infection which is caused by the location of the incision used to introduce the implants; and the rupture of the gluteal implants due to the intense pressure exerted on the surgical area.

Butt implant surgery is performed under general anesthetic, and the options for the placement of the implants are the following:

  1. Submuscular placement
  2. Intramuscular placement
  3. Subfascial placement

In most cases, I personally prefer the intramuscular placement of the butt implants as it bears fewer risks for post-operative complications.

The shape and the dimensions of the implants vary depending on the desired results and the patient’s anatomy before the surgery.

Gluteal implants are available in different shapes such as round, oval or anatomic, and they can also be classified according to their material. The most frequently used implants are the silicone ones that do not break, leak or lose their full shape. Your plastic surgeon will discuss all the possible options available and will recommend the most suitable treatment plan for your particular case.

After deciding on the type and size of implants to be used, the next step is determining the suitable area for the location of the incisions. The incisions to create the pocket for the butt implants can be performed in the following areas:

  1. In the area of the inferior fold of the buttocks
  2. In the intergluteal fold. Some plastic surgeons will prefer this incision as only one incision is performed for both butt cheeks and the scar can be successfully hidden in that area.
  3. In between the butt cheeks

Once the decision about the placement of the incision is made, your plastic surgeon will decide the location of the implants. Frequently, the implants are placed inside the gluteus maximus muscle. The butt implants are usually positioned over the area where you usually sit so you won’t be technically sitting on the implants. Inserting the buttock implants inside the muscle usually provides a more natural aspect. The procedure will begin with a vertical incision in the intergluteal area on both sides of the buttocks. A small space will be created to allow the placement of the implants, and then the muscle is positioned over the implants. To finish the surgery, the initial incision is sutured in multiple layers. The average time necessary for this intervention (without any other additional procedures being performed simultaneously) is about two hours. Drain tubes will be introduced to help evacuate the liquid at the incision site.

Normally, you will be able to go home shortly after the intervention. Relaxation and ample rest are important for a fast recovery. Your plastic surgeon will perform checkups regularly after the procedure to make sure everything goes according to plan, and that you will get the best results possible. After the buttock implant surgery, you might experience inflammation, swelling and bruising as well as localized pain that will reduce in intensity over the following weeks. The discomfort will be relieved with analgesic medication, and you will be able to wear compression garments to facilitate the recovery of the body.

The first two post-operative weeks are the most difficult as the patients won’t be able to sit properly on their buttocks. It is advisable to avoid sitting directly on your butt for at least 21 days after the intervention. Likewise, all types of strenuous physical exercises should be avoided for at least 4 to 6 weeks after the surgery. Most patients will get two weeks leave from work, but some patients might need more time to recuperate before resuming work.

A butt implant requires a higher degree of dedication from the patient as there are many post-operative restrictions that should be strictly followed to avoid complications such as infections and to achieve the desired results. At the same time, the discomfort after surgery can last up to a few weeks, and it involves plenty of time spent lying on the belly to allow the back side to recover.

Infections are rare complications, but they can occur nevertheless. In some cases, the infection is caused by a lack of proper hygiene at the incision site, and this is why it is essential to follow the doctor’s recommendation for the post-surgical care of the wound. Other infections can occur at deeper levels, such as around the implant and an additional surgery will be required to remove the implant and clean the area properly. Taking prescribed antibiotics after the surgery is necessary to prevent the onset of infection. If antibiotics are insufficient to treat an existing infection, surgical intervention will be necessary.

Conclusion

Nowadays, many women want large, beautifully shaped buttocks and more appealing curves. This is because beauty trends have shifted, wherein voluptuous shapes are the symbol of sensuality and sex appeal. Curvaceous bodies have become the ideal silhouette, rather than in the past, where a svelte or slim figure was considered as the most attractive.

For this reason, butt implant surgery has become very popular among men and women. This is a procedure in which hard silicone implants are inserted into the buttocks to achieve a more attractive derriere with a defined contour.

Like all surgeries, there are some potential risks in this surgery. Infection is one of the potential complications when undergoing buttock augmentation with implants. Fortunately, it only occurs in rare cases, and it can be prevented by taking antibiotics immediately after the surgery. If the treatment with antibiotics provides no results, an additional intervention will be needed to remove the implants and clean the pocket. Therefore, these risks can be mitigated in resolved with the help of your surgeon.
