What Are Butt Implants?

Published on March 20, 2020

If you are unhappy with your buttock size and looking to enlarge or lift them, butt implants are the ideal solution. These artificial implants add shape to your buttocks while enhancing your self-confidence. It is an outpatient procedure and generally takes around 2-3 hours. You are a good candidate for butt implants if you are 18 years or older, in good physical and mental health, and if you want to enhance the aesthetics of your butt.


To begin with, your cosmetic surgeon makes an incision in the crease of the buttock. A pocket is created and the implant is placed below or above the muscle. The expert then makes sure that the cheeks are similar and look natural. Once convinced, the surgeon closes the incisions and applies a medical compression garment.

Butt implants are safe and effective, but you will need to rest for a few months post-procedure before taking on high intensity work.
