The more coverage you have for the implant the less palpable and less visible they are, in general.  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.
Measurements will help determine the size and the shape of implant.

Buttock implant sizing

One of the most important factors in creating the perfect derriere with implants is indeed selecting the right size AND shape.  I have found the best way to assure this is to simply measure the actual dimensions of the patients buttock cheeks.  With these anatomical measurements, I can select an implant that not only significantly augments the buttock but also supplies the correct 3-dimensional enhancement to look as real as possible.  Therefore the only way for you to know what implant works best is to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in this procedure and have him/her take your measurements before selecting an implant and proceeding with surgery.  Glad to help... @drryanstanton

Implant size

Dear Alicia,

   It is very difficult to give you an answer without seeing your pictures. I have been doing butt implants in my practice for over 10 years. I use oval implants made of very soft silicone. In that category there are 2 styles - round and bubble butt. I prefer the the oval round because it gives you more fullness uptop. The sizes of the implants range from 190cc to 700cc. The most common sizes in the practice are between 375cc and 565cc. The butts look very natural and feel very natural. Another important point is the location of the implants. I place them under the muscle fascia , between the posterior iliac spine and the butt crease. Consults with a board certified plastic surgeon who performs lots of butt implants and you like his or her results.

                                 Best of luck,
