CAN YOU FEEL BUTT IMPLANTS WHEN SITTING DOWN?

Most women desire to have beautiful, rounded, and large bottoms. Some lucky women get naturally attractive buttocks, shutterstock_279345794but for those who do not, buttock implants can be a great option. While this procedure is an effective way to add shape and volume to your butt, post-operative care is the key to the sustainability of your butt implants.

Your surgeon may tell you to avoid sitting down for a few weeks after buttock implant surgery. When you are finally allowed to sit down, it may feel different from what you used to experience with your natural buttocks. No doubt, adjusting to your new buttocks will take time.

Whether you can feel the butt implants depends on the location and size of the incisions and how well your plastic surgeon has performed the surgery. It is common for butt implant patients to experience intermittent or continuous pain and heaviness in the buttocks for the first two months.

When sitting down after butt implants, you will feel like you are sitting on a filling. You will probably experience this feeling in the upper part of your buttocks, even though this is not the pressure-enduring area when you sit down. Buttock implants are normally located higher in the gluteal pocket. When you sit down, you are not actually sitting on the butt implant itself.

However, as time passes, your body and skin make gradual adjustments, and you will likely forget about any strange feelings three months after the procedure; your buttocks will be largely back to normal and feel soft and natural.

Your plastic surgeon

It is important to understand, however, that the butt implant recovery period comes with inconveniences. You will be told to take precautionary measures like not sitting down for a few weeks or days. You should abide by your surgeon

In order to avoid discomfort when sitting down for the first time after butt implants, make sure to place a soft cushion beneath your bottom. You may feel as if you are sitting on padding or a wallet. If you are uncomfortable with the feeling, lie down on your stomach. There are also some medications your surgeon may prescribe to minimize the pain and discomfort when sitting down. Make certain to take your medications on time and according to your surgeon

Feeling the butt implants when sitting down also differs from one patient to another. Some people may feel heaviness in their buttocks, while to others it may seem like their buttocks have become harder. Do not fear these feelings, because they will gradually subside. However, if you still feel uncomfortable while sitting down four months after buttock implants, you should consult with your surgeon.

Let’s talk about the first buttock shape:  the A-shaped buttock. shutterstock_415086820 So, what is the A-shaped buttock? In my opinion, this is the shape that I like the most and the sexiest and most feminine of all the buttock shapes.  If you already have an A-shape, that means it will be easy to get a good result with your Brazilian buttock augmentation.  When fat is injected into the lower part of the buttocks, I do not have to worry about changing the proportion of the top of the buttock to the bottom of the buttock; it is mainly to fill out buttocks that already have a nice foundation.

If you already have A-shaped buttocks, you are going to have a good result. There is no need to change the proportions or create an illusion of having a wider buttock at the bottom as compared to the upper part of the buttock. Doing liposuction on the lower back combined with fat injection to expand the skin envelope of the buttock will easily recreate the A shape. If you have an A shape prior to surgery, you are one of the lucky ones that will require less effort to accomplish an amazing result.

The number of women wanting to enhance their behinds has never been so high, thanks to the trends set by celebrities like shutterstock_137072666Kim Kardashian. If you are reading this, chances are you are thinking about enhancing your buttocks. In order to get optimum benefits from buttock enhancement, you must prepare yourself for the procedure.

Your plastic surgeon will assess your health, expectations, and goals to see if you qualify for the buttock enhancement procedure. Your preparation for the procedure starts with realistic expectations. Also, you should not go under the knife only to please someone else; the decision to pursue buttock enhancement should be your own.

If you are a smoker, you should stop smoking at least five to seven weeks before the procedure because smoking can hinder your body

Remember, preparation is the key when it comes to getting excellent results from the buttock enhancement procedure. Before the surgery, ask your plastic surgeon about all the steps involved in the procedure, so you can prepare yourself accordingly. Your surgeon will give you guidelines about your procedure date, preparations you need to make, expectations to keep, recovery, and follow-ups.

Your plastic surgeon may tell you to stop taking certain prescription and over-the-counter drugs, including blood-thinning medications like aspirin and any herbal supplements you might be taking, in order to avert any possible complications. You will also be required to stop drinking alcohol. Your surgeon may also tell you to take Tylenol before the procedure.

You should make certain that all your lab work has been completed and sent to your plastic surgeon. For at least two days before the buttock enhancement procedure, you should use Chlorhexidine soap while showering; it is recommended that you use the soap for 15 minutes two times a day. Because skin care products can trigger complications during the surgery, you should stop using them at least three days before the procedure.

You will be required to stop eating or drinking anything a number of hours before your buttock enhancement procedure. If your surgeon has prescribed any medications for before the surgery, make sure to take them as per the instructions. Wearing loose-fitting clothes can keep you comfortable on your surgery day. Also, wearing jewelry and other valuables is not allowed during surgery.

It is important to prepare yourself to wear compression garments for a few days after the buttock enhancement procedure. It is also important to arrange someone to drive you home after the surgery. You should stockpile food, fruits, juices, and all other necessary supplies at home before going for the surgery. The first 24 hours after the surgery are important, so you should make sure that a loved one or a nurse stays with you.

One option to augment the buttocks is to use buttock implants. shutterstock_392482486Buttock implants have some limitations when it comes to recreating the hourglass shape. If you look at this diagram, the buttock implant is inserted in the central aspect of the buttock to provide projection and only projection. The problem is that patients who require any sort of buttock augmentation procedure have different asymmetries in different parts of the buttocks, and the implants will not correct asymmetries apart from making your buttocks bigger. They will not provide you with an hourglass shape. Another problem with buttock implants is that even if you place the implant inside the muscle, the edges can be visible, particularly in patients who are very thin. For this reason, I combine buttock augmentation with implant and fat transfer.

When I perform a buttock augmentation with fat transfer, I perform liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and sides; then the patient is placed in the prone position or on the chest and liposuction is performed on the upper and lower back and the waistline. I will then create two incisions, one in each buttock, and the buttock implants will be placed inside the muscle. Closure will be performed, and then once I know for sure that the implants are in the right position, I will perform a fat transfer around the implants, including the top, the sides, and the lower part, to provide not only a more natural look and feel, but also an hourglass shape. Combining fat transfer with a buttock implant is absolutely necessary regardless of the type of buttock implant that you use. Buttock implants will not provide the shape that you want unless different surgical techniques are combined to re-create your shape.

If you survive the butt injection with silicone, the first thing you need to do is to thank God. Now, you need to understand that, even if you don’t develop a complication right away, it might happen years after the surgery. There are many ways to manage the complications of silicone Buttock Augmentation.

Surgical treatment of silicone granuloma, as discussed before, is a challenge. It is a challenge to treat because, once you inject the product in the buttock, it disperses to many areas. If the granuloma or product is well localized, then, it can be surgically removed. On the other hand, most of the times this is not the case since multiple injections of the product in different areas makes it difficult to anticipate the extent of the granulomatous reaction. I have personally treated silicone granuloma in the breasts, and it requires a complete removal of the breast tissue (mastectomy) and a reconstruction. Over time the effect of inflammation on the fat and breast tissue distorts the breasts significantly. A similar reaction is common in other parts of the body like the buttocks.

Various factors will determine the extent of the surgical excision and final results:

1. Chronic inflammation resulting in distortion and granuloma
2. Amount of silicone injected
3. Area in the buttock that was injected
4. Purity of the silicone injected

Unfortunately, when silicone is injected, there are not a lot of options, except to wait and see how the body reacts and encapsulates the product. Many times a surgical reconstruction will be necessary to restore the harmony of a deformed area.

There are other options to manage silicone granulomas and complications associated with this product. Painful granulomas have been treated with the following products:

1. Steroids
2. Non-steroidal antiinflamatory drugs
3. Tetracycline
4. Immune modulating therapies

Steroids have led to improvement in the symptoms but the effects appear to be transient and the symptoms often relapse upon tapering of the dose. Both injection of the granuloma with steroids and oral steroids have been use in an attempt to control the inflammation with mix results.

Non-steroidal anti-inflamatory agents have also been used and led to symptomatic improvement although also the effects appear to be transient.

Now, tetracycline including family of antibiotics has led to sustained remission in several cases. These antibiotics have intrinsic anti-inflamatory and immune-modulating capabilities but long terms remission is still to be seen.

Finally, some newer medications that control the immune system have also been used in treating silicone granulomas. Medications like etanercept and imiquimid show promosing in managing the pain and the inflammation. Now, most of the studies and report on the literature has been on small granulomas on the lips, cheeks and other part of the face which typically are small amount that what is typically use in buttock augmentation.

Silicone pneumonitis is closely associated with the silicone emboli syndrome discussed in the previous blog. Silicone pneumonitis is an inflammation of the lung. Injections of silicone in the buttocks have been associated with spillage of silicone in the alveolar space after embolization which spreads to the lungs. Patients typically present several symptoms such as shortness of breath, fever, cough, and vomiting blood.

There are two ways (to detect pneumonitis) how pneumonitis presents itself. Most patients present an early response usually a few days after the injections, including shortness of breath, chest pain, cough, and sometimes loss of consciousness. The second response is later after the injection, most typically after 6 months of the injection. Patients present local swelling at the injections’ site and mild respiratory symptoms.

Pathological examination supports the theory that silicone injections result in migration of silicone to the blood stream affecting the lung and causing an inflammatory response resulting in either a lung inflammation or pulmonary vessel blockage.
This blog has explained another reason why silicone should not be injected for butt augmentation.

Severe complications have been documented in different states across the country due to the injection of liquid silicone.  In 2007, the North Carolina Division of Public Health performed an investigation of three patients that presented acute renal failure (kidney not working) after an injection of presumably silicone for soft tissue augmentation. All the patients had learned about the facility that was injecting silicone through the Internet. The provider was a radiology technician who was injecting silicone without proper supervision. The importance of this possible complication was posted on the CDC epidemic Information Exchange and distributed to physicians countrywide.

The literature does not explicitly report that silicone causes kidney failure directly, but some reports indicate that often silicone is either mixed with other products intentionally that   stimulate an acute inflammation to avoid silicone migration or is not sterile and has been adulterated unintentionally with other products.

Practitioners implicated in injecting these products have been convicted of serious offences up to third degree murder in the practice of medicine without a license.

Suppose you want to have your butt done and you have heard of a new product on the street… Such product supposedly requires minimal down time and you don’t need to have surgery. You contact an individual that you found online or through email and schedule an appointment. During you appointment you are told that the best way to increase the volume of your butt is by injecting silicone. The person gives you a quote for $2,000.00 and the procedure will be done in a hotel room without major anesthesia. All excited, you show up the day of the procedure. The provider starts injecting a liquid with no color or smell. Everything is going well and your butt starts having a better shape. There is minimal pain. All of a sudden, you lose consciousness and wake up in an emergency room. You can barely breathe, your heart is pounding rapidly, and after a while everything goes dark and the beep of your heart becomes silent.  What a terrible situation!

Injecting silicone into the buttocks can cause what is called the silicone emboli syndrome. This is a condition where clots block the blood supply to the lungs preventing oxygen from getting into the blood stream and essentially you suffocate and can even die. This typically occurs within the first 72 hrs after silicone injection. There are two main ways of presenting this syndrome. First, the patient can be present with respiratory distress and low oxygen levels within the first 72 hrs. There is fever, chest pain, cough, vomiting blood, and shortness of breath. Other patients  present an altered mental status, including coma. If this is the case, your chances of dying is 100%.

The silicone emboli syndrome is the most serious complication of buttock augmentation with silicone. I don’t recommend injecting this product in the buttock area. If you survive this injection, most likely you will have additional problems in the future as discussed previously.

Silicone granuloma (painful nodes) is the most common complication of liquid injectable silicone.  Granuloma is a medical and pathological term used to describe the formation  of a mass of immune cells, inflammatory cells and scar tissue that forms when the immune system attempts to wall off substances that perceives as foreign but is unable to eliminate. When silicone is injected into the buttocks or any other area of the body, a similar response occurs. The reaction of liquid silicone injected to the buttocks vary considerably and depends on the amount and type of silicone injected. There are two general clinical presentations. In the first one, the patient presents painful multicystic lumps on the buttock area. This can occur in the early years or as long as 10 -15 years after the injection.the second presentation is characterized by skin inflammation and breakdown as the silicone migrates close to the skin. Also, these lesions manifest as recurrent infections with pain and hardening of the buttocks.

The exact mechanism is not fully understood but multiple theories exits. It is known that silicone is not completely biologically inert. Silicone undergoes a biological  oxidation to silica. This product is incorporated in some cells called reticular endothelial cells. It is speculated that  this oxidation into silica sets the stage for the  painful granulomas manifested.
