You can choose from a variety of sizes and shapes. Your surgeon can help you determine which size is the best for you, as more measurements and a pic would be required to give you better advice.

The best way to choose size of the buttock implant is to go to an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who should:  ask you what is your aesthetic goal, make measurements of your buttocks, and review the options with you.  The buttock implants are now designed with different shapes (oval or round), widths / lengths, and projections.  You should get the one that BEST suits your body and aesthetic goals, and doesn't compromise your healing - example:  the surgeon should let you know which ones are too large for your body as there would be an increase in such risks as wound healing with the larger implants.  Done correctly however, it is a beautiful procedure, and it is gaining popularity with the emphasis on appreciating a woman's curves:))

My recommendation is to chose fat transfer, if possible.  If not, then do not have too large of an implant.  In the mid 400cc's would probably be good for you.  Large implants may cause problems in the future.

Choosing a buttock implant depend on the buttock measurements, the projection you want and where in the buttock you want the maximum projection.

Some times i may order a custome made implant..

The ideal placement of the implant is under the muscle but away from the nerve.
