Buttock Implants Selection

Butt implants come in various types, shapes, and sizes. The ideal implant is chosen during the initial consultation. Your plastic surgeon will examine your rear end and take measurements. They will consider your body outline and overall physical features as well.

The surgeon will recommend an ideal size and type of implant based on their observations. You should consider their recommendation and let them know your aesthetic goals.


An anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist will administer the anesthesia and stay in the operating room throughout the procedure to ensure you are comfortable. You won’t feel any pain or discomfort if you are under general anesthesia.

Make Discreet Incisions

The surgeon will begin the cosmetic surgery after administering the anesthesia. The incisions will be made in the buttocks for fitting the implants. Larger incisions will be required for inserting larger implants. Generally, the incision is made in the crevice between the buttocks for camouflaging the scars.

Placing the Implant

The next step involves inserting the implants after making discreet incisions. Your cosmetic surgeon will need to carefully insert the implant so that no nerves or tissues get injured or damaged. The plastic surgeon will use custom technique for implant insertion within the buttocks.

Most plastic surgeons and patients like the implants to be placed under or within the gluteal muscles. This allows the implants to acquire adequate tissue coverage. It also prevents any other complications. Results are more natural when the implants are placed under or within the gluteal muscles.

There is an increase in the risk of nerve compression when implants are set deep under the gluteal muscles. This is why surgeons should take proper measures to insert the implants at a specific depth.

Using Sutures to Close the Incisions

Suturing and closing the incisions is the final step in the butt augmentation procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon, during this step, will use layered sutures in the butt tissues for closing the incisions. They may do this by using skin glue, tape, and stitches. They will then dress the surgical wound. Your cosmetic surgery will end when the incisions are sutured closed.

Customizable Surgery to Meet Unique Patient Needs

Butt enhancement procedures can be customized for meeting the unique needs of individual patients. Your surgeon will tweak the above-mentioned steps based on your aesthetic goals and personal preferences.

The procedural steps will be planned after taking your preferences into account. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez receives patients from El Paso, TX, and nearby areas for buttock enhancement surgery.
