Buttock implants may be an ideal solution for patients seeking a smoother, fuller, and more youthful looking backside. However, proper placement of these semi-solid silicone implants is crucial. Failure to do so can lead to shifting of the implants and infection. Choosing a surgeon experienced in the procedure can minimize your risks and help ensure a successful outcome. Dr. Daniel Greenwald of Bayshore Plastic Surgery has performed this procedure for many years on countless patients from Tampa, Naples, Clearwater, St Petersburg, and elsewhere throughout Florida. Dr. Greenwald, who trained and studied at  Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and the University of Chicago, was named one of America’s Top Surgeons in 2009, 2010, and 2011 by the Consumer Research Council.  He takes the time to truly listen to his patients and understand their body image goals. With buttock augmentation surgery, he can help patients achieve an enhanced body curvature and improve overall contouring.

The surgical placement of buttock implants can:

  • Lift and tighten loose skin due to weight loss or aging
  • Sculpt a symmetrical shape and size by defining the gluteal muscles

What Happens During Plastic Surgery Involving Buttock Implants?
Dr. Greenwald begins the procedure by administering general anesthesia. He then creates pockets for the buttock implants either beneath or above the gluteal muscles with carefully placed incisions. Liposuction may also be performed to provide further smoothing and shaping around the buttocks. Once Dr. Greenwald is satisfied that the buttock implants are properly placed, proportionate, and symmetrical, the incisions are closed with stitches.

Surgical Concerns
Patients who undergo a surgical placement of buttock implants are at risk for infection and may experience bruising, swelling, soreness, or stiffness during the recovery period. Implants may shift or rupture, although these occurrences are rare.
