How Long Can Hip and Butt Implants Last?

Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their bodies. Fortunately, procedures like a hip or butt implant can make all the difference. Cosmetic surgeries can help improve almost any part of your body that you want to improve. 


Hips and butt implants can be a solution for many people. However, knowing how long they can last will help you decide if you are willing to invest in the procedures. Read on to learn more. 


What Are Hip Implants?


Hip implants are a cosmetic surgical procedure that augments the hip using silicone implants or fat transfer. Using silicone implants gives a more permanent solution. It creates contouring, hourglass figure, and hip dips that many individuals desire. Fat transfer offers a more natural alternative. However, its results are often less predictable as it gets absorbed by the body.


What Are Butt Implants?


Butt implants are in-office permanent cosmetic procedures that add volume to the buttocks. Your posterior structure is often due to genetics. Butt implants help reshape your buttocks to give a desirable result. 


Silicone implants help give a more defined posterior. Your doctor will administer anesthesia to help you not feel pain. They will cut between your butt cheeks, bottom, or upper buttocks to place the implants inside. Doctors have different insertion and placement methods.


You can balance your figure by having a fuller bottom, especially if you have wide hips or large breasts. As a result, you also boost your self-confidence.


Candidates for Hip Implants


Hip implants contour and augment the volume and curvature of your entire hip, buttock, upper leg area, and pelvis. The procedure enhances the aesthetic of those areas of the body. 


An ideal candidate is any individual in good health looking for the benefits of the hip implant procedure. It may not suit people with chronic medical conditions or low body fat. You may also not be suitable if your upper legs have excessive musculature.


Candidates for Butt Implants 


Buttock implants are not ideal for everyone. You may be eligible for the procedure if you:


  • Live a healthy lifestyle

  • Lose some weight

  • Lose your natural buttock shape

  • Do not smoke tobacco

  • Have flat or saggy buttocks


How Long Hip and Butt Implants Last


Hip implant procedure results are immediately noticeable. You get permanent improvements to the contour and volume of your upper legs, hips, and butt. Fat transfer results diminish gradually due to natural reabsorption. However, silicone implants offer a more permanent solution.


The complete butt implant results are visible after three months. Most people experience pain after the procedure. Fortunately, you can control the discomfort using over-the-counter pain medications. Your doctor may also prescribe some drugs to help manage the pain. You may also need surgical drains that require emptying severally in a day.


You will need compression garments after the butt implant surgery. You will receive instructions on the regimen to follow before your next appointment. Avoid lying or sitting on your rear for two weeks after the butt implant procedure. Silicone butt implants can last for more than a decade.
