Safety Concerns About Butt Augmentation Procedures

Concerns for Butt Augmentation

Concerns for Butt AugmentationThe butt is one of the most difficult parts of the body to make bigger, shapelier and sexier. For these reasons, it should not come as a surprise why butt augmentation surgery is one of the trendiest cosmetic procedures currently being performed. Every year, tens of thousands of women go under the knife to achieve a nice-looking butt. While butt augmentation surgery is a very effective option for many patients, it is a surgical operation and all forms of surgery come with many dangers.

In general, the use of implants is gaining popularity as an effective method of making the butt bigger. Butt implants works the same way as breast implants. Both are artificial devices placed in the breast or butt areas to make them look bigger. Just like breast implants, butt implants are artificial devices inserted into the buttocks area to make it look bigger and sexier. Unfortunately, using these devices may lead to problems that put the patient’s health in danger. One thing that makes butt implants arguably more dangerous than breast implants is the fact that the patient sits on them for hours every single day. This may cause the butt implants to shift or move around and cause the butt to be asymmetrical. A surgeon can put the butt implants above the “sitting area” to reduce the risk of this complication.

The risk of implant ruptures is ever-present. Although it happens very rarely, butt implants can rupture and the substances contained within them can spread to other parts of the body. This creates unpleasant lumps in various areas like the arms, belly, chest, legs and even the internal organs. A ruptured implant can also lead to secondary infections that may result in serious debilitation or death. The damage can be repaired by undergoing further surgery. Fortunately, the surgery to remove a ruptured implant is relatively easier than the primary surgery. The same incision that was used to put the implants can be used again to remove them and the recovery period is generally faster. To prevent this complication from happening in the first place, newer forms of implants have been developed including the semi-solid ones that will not ruptures and leaks. 

One common thing about butt augmentation surgeries is the risk of infection. Since a person sits on their butt all the time, healing after the operation can be a bit tricky. An incision that does not heal properly increases the chances of developing an infection. A surgical wound that doesn’t heal properly is constantly irritated, and, if located in an area near the anus, can very likely become infected. Infections in the butt incision must be carefully monitored and prevented as much as possible. To do this, patients should follow their post-operative instructions on how to keep the surgical wound clean.

An embolism pertains to the blockage of an artery and is mainly by a blood clot. In pulmonary embolism, the affected blood vessel is the artery that supplies the lungs. To prevent this complication, the surgeon has to take precautionary measures which include patient screening and prescription of appropriate medications. The patient has to follow the post-surgery instructions provided by the surgeon to prevent formation of blood clots. Aside from blood clots, there are other things that can cause embolisms and one of them is silicone that is accidentally injected into the bloodstream.

Other than implants, butt augmentation can also be achieved through an injection of the patient’s own fat. However, there are some fraudulent doctors who also inject foreign materials like liquid silicone, petroleum jelly and paraffin. These foreign materials are not approved for use in butt augmentation and are illegal. Many patients are attracted to these illegal substances simply because they are much cheaper. Liquid silicone, in particular, must not be injected into the bloodstream as it is much more dangerous than the use of a silicone implant. When injected, silicone can migrate to other parts of the body.
