Buttock Implant Shape Choice

+2

The most important factors determining the shape (and size) of a buttock implant to be used in any given patient are the dimensions of the native buttock cheeks and the 3-dimensional distribution of the gluteus maximus (largest buttock muscle) and overlying fat.  As is the case with the girl in the photo, most women have oval shaped buttock cheeks with a larger distribution of volume in the lower 2/3rds.  Hence an oval shape implant would most likely be the case, provided your buttock is similar.  Glad to help...RAS

The chpoice of implant and the final desired look depends on the present body shape fat distribution and measurement of the buttocks to choose the proper implant.

The type of implant must be determined by measurements after an exam.  The final result will also depend upon your starting point.  I have placed both oval and round.

Intramuscular implants can improve volume by 400 cc or so, depending upon the size of the individual. A significant amount above this volume compromises healing by creating more tension on the healing incision.
