An incision can be made where the cheek meets the back of the thigh or down the buttock crease. Though this area does carry a high infection risk, the cut is usually made in the buttock crease where scars are not noticeable. A pocket large enough to insert the butt implants are created either under the gluteus maximus muscle, or on top of the muscle. Liposuction may also be performed in order to further enhance the shape of the buttocks. After performing the same on the other side the incisions are closed after checking for symmetry
In most cases general anesthesia is preferred for this procedure.
The surgery usually takes about two to three hours to complete, it may vary on the size of the implant and the technique used. Since this is done as an outpatient procedure you'll be able to get discharged within a few hours of the surgery. Avoid sitting on the buttocks during the initial healing phase. With so much stress regularly placed on this area, patients may experience great pain during the recovery period.
