Butt augmentation is one of the most common procedures performed to enhance the shape of the body. This surgery makes the buttocks fuller and shapelier, providing the patient with a sensuous look. To achieve the patient’s desired goals, this intervention involves the use of implants which are made of semi-solid silicone material. These implants are inserted in the buttocks. Since buttock implant surgery involves incisions, many patients fear the procedure. If you are planning to undergo butt augmentation, know that you do not have to fear the intervention since the surgery is performed under general anesthesia. However, you have to be aware that you will experience some degree of pain and discomfort after the procedure.
If you are asking why it is unavoidable for you to feel the pain and discomfort, it is simply because the butt implant surgery will injure your skin, nerves, muscles, and tissues that will cause your body to react in the form of pain and discomfort. The intensity of the pain differs from patient to patient because it depends on the pain tolerance of each patient. The pain is mostly felt in the first 24-72 hours after the surgery has been performed but it will then subside and disappear. If the patient is experiencing intense pain, plastic surgeons might recommend Vicodin, a painkiller, to be used for 2-4 days following the procedure. IV pain relief medications can also be used if the pain is unbearable. The use of compression garments can be done to ease the pain and discomfort.
There are measures that you can follow for you to avoid experiencing intense pain. You must prohibit yourself from doing any physical activity that will cause you to apply pressure to the incisions. In addition, you should also keep the surgery area clean. Take antibiotics as prescribed by the surgeon. For you to have a fast recovery, make sure that you will follow the plastic surgeon’s instructions.
