Are there any other options for enhancing the buttocks of a patient with sickle cell anemia?

Buttock implants with sickle cell anemia

Depending upon the severity of your sickle cell anemia, you may still be fit for elective surgery such as buttock implants. You need to be seen and cleared by your primary care doctor in charge of managing your sickle cell. Once medically cleared, you may then proceed if also determined to be a reasonable surgical candidate. Glad to help.

Buttock augmentation

Surgery is possible for a patient with Sickle Cell however it needs to be cleared by a primary care doctor.  There needs to be extensive testing and bloodwork done before the procedure is even concidered. Its depends on the severity of the symptoms and whether or not your doctor believes you are fit to undergo a surgical procedure.
