Buttock Implants: What Are the Pros and Cons of Using Round vs. Anatomical Shaped Implants?

Some doctors swear by ROUND ONLY buttock implants in part because if they move or spin they are less likely to be noticed or look strange. HOWEVER, other doctors NOTE that ONE SHAPE does NOT necessarliy fit all. In other words, the anatomical shaped implants may be useful for those needing more volume in the lower region. Give the possibility of movement, are anatomical implants more risky than round implants.

Buttock Implant

The choice of buttock implants depend on

1: the shape and measurement of the buttock

2: the shape of the pelvic bone

3: Where is the maximal projection desired.

Therefore an analysis of the the present anatomy dictates the shape of buttock implant used.

Other decisions you need to make is the position of the implant

1: subcutaneous

2: sub-facial

3; intramuscular

You need to understand the risks of the surgery

Infection, bleeding, hematoma, seroma, shifting of implants, capsular contracture, feeling of implant, pain

Recurrent seoma.
