Body contouring implants are an option for people who want to improve the appearance of certain areas of the body that don’t respond to exercise or diet. These implants can be used on various areas of the body, including the buttocks and calves.
There are different types of body contouring implants, but the most common are made of silicone. They are placed under the skin and muscle tissue through an incision made in the area of interest. After the implant is placed, the incision is closed with stitches and the patient can begin the recovery process.
Recovery may vary depending on the area in which the implant was placed. For example, if the implant has been placed in the buttocks, the patient will need to avoid sitting for a period of time to allow the implant to be fixed properly. In general, it is recommended to avoid intense physical exercise for a few weeks after surgery.
Body contouring implants can provide lasting results, but it is important to remember that they are not a permanent solution. The success of the procedure depends on factors such as the patient’s weight, lifestyle and proper maintenance.
Just like any other surgical procedure, there are risks and complications associated with body contouring implants. It is important to talk to a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon before making a decision about surgery.
In summary, body contouring implants are an option for improving the appearance of specific areas of the body. They can provide long-lasting results, but it’s important to understand the risks and complications involved before making a decision about surgery.
