Butt Implant Revision - Can I Go Bigger?

I have done butt implants around 8 months ago and I love the results the shape is beautiful and very natural , but I would like to go a little bit bigger. I love the results when i did it but now that Im not swollen at all it looks small, Im a curve girl and my implants are 330cc I would like to go 360cc but Im not sure if that would make much difference .I want my butt to look bigger but natural. Thanks

Larger buttock implants


From the photos, it looks like you have a beautiful result.  I doubt that adding another 10% to the buttock implant size will make a difference you can even detect, and re-opening the surgical pocket always carries the risk of creating problems.

Your surgeon can tell you how many additional millimeters you will get from the additional volume, based on the tables provided by the manufacturer.

But my advice would be to enjoy the great result you have obtained and skip any additional surgery.  Go back and check your pre-operative photos to remind yourself of the improvement you have obtained from your surgery.

Upsize butt implants?


You seem to have a beautiful result.  I do not think that upsizing your implant is worth the substantial risk of infection.  The upsize volume but you are considering will not make much of a difference.  Only you can judge whether the risk and benefits are worthwhile pursuing.  Speak with your plastic surgeon.

Larger butt implants


Dear Mona,

   Thanks for submitting your picture. Adding , though, the before picture will be very helpfull. Like the previous comment, I do not recommend a 30cc increase , because it will be insignificant. 430cc or even 485cc will be more appropriate and still look natural. Your result looks very nice, so , discuss it with your surgeon. If he declines to go bigger and you are adamant about the change, consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who performs lots of butt implants. Check his or hers before and after to make sure that you like the results.

         Best of luck,
