Q: How much time does a Butt Augmentation normally require?
A: The time it takes for a butt implant surgery to be completed generally depends on the extent of the procedure you are having done and the type of implants you having inserted. The surgery usually takes around one to two hours to complete, this would include having liposuction done as well.
Q: Where can I have this type of surgery performed?
A: Usually a procedure like this will be done at your local outpatient surgery center. These facilities are usually licensed by the state you are in and are federally certified to perform and assist in surgical procedures. Some surgeons have their own facilities or they may also have hospital priveledges so that you may be able to have your augmentation done at your local hospital.
Q: How much pain is involved?
A: While the surgery is being performed you will be watched carefully by an anesthesia group to ensure that you stay comfortable and feel no pain. The details of the anesthesia will be fully discussed during your consultation appointment with your cosmetic surgeon. After the surgery, you will be able to take prescription pain medication to elleviate the pain and discomfort as you recover. This pain should subside within a few days.
Q: Are there any special tests required beforehand?
A: Yes. Like any other surgery, you will need to have routine blood tests done due to the administration of the anesthesia. You may also be required to give a urine sample and women will be asked to take a pregnancy test. Your cosmetic surgeon will give you all the details on these tests before your procedure.
Q: When will I be able to return to work or my normal daily activities?
A: This really depends on what type of butt implants you chose and your own individual resilience. Some people are simply able to deal with recovery from a surgical procedure much better than others. On average, most patients are typically back at their jobs or doing their usual activities within a week or ten days. Your surgeon will be able to give you more information on how long they expect you to be out of work. If any complications were to come up, you may need to take additional time off from your job until they are taken care of.
Q: How Long Before I will See Results?
A: With any type of cosmetic surgery, the result time frame varies. This, like the recovery time, can also depend on the individual patient. There are people who bruise easily and this can cause you to not be able to see the results as well. Other people do not bruise as easily and may be able to see their clear results much sooner. There may also be some swelling after the surgery. Both the bruising and swelling should go away within one to two weeks. On average the final, optimal result can be seen a few months after your surgery date. It is normal to feel uncomfortable after your implant surgery and it is advised that you do not sit on your sutures until they are completely healed. You should be able to sit normally once again after about a week.
