Butt implants are safe and can be done with minimum risk of complications. We have been doing butt implants for over 10 years and have not had complications observed nationally most likely due to modifications of the originally described surgery. A consultation will provide you details of surgery that may make this decision easier for you.
Many surgeons do not do buttock implants because they have not had the proper training and, thus, simply do not know how to. Furthermore, just like you they too are fearful of the procedure because of all the frank misconceptions and bad press about buttuck implants. On the other hand, there was recently a large multi-center study published showing that butt implants are as safe as fat transfer with a less than 5% complication rate across the board. Additionally, I have been performing buttock implafor over 15 years and my overall complication rate is approximately 2% with an infection rate less than 1%. Glad to help.
