Butt Implants for Fullness in the Mid to Lower Buttocks Area

Who is a Good Candidate for Butt Implants Subfascial Surgery?

Once you decide that a butt implant is your best option, your cosmetic surgeon or board certified plastic surgeon will ask you to chose where you would like the butt implants. The perfect candidate for butt implants subfascial is someone who is looking for a significant increase in fullness in the mid & lower buttocks. (For patients wanting fullness in the upper buttocks area see submuscular butt implants) 
The main difference between butt implants and a butt lift is that an artificial implant made of natural-feeling silicone is used for the butt implant. A butt lift usually involves the use of fat cells or liquid to perk up the buttocks.

How does Butt Implants Subfascial Surgery Work?

When you have decided on getting butt implants, now you must decide where you want the implants placed. Your cosmetic surgeon or board-certified plastic surgeon will make a small incision in the crease between the buttocks and place implants between the gluteus muscle and its overlying strong covering tissue (fascia). Since this space is larger than the space inside the muscle, a larger implant can be used. This buttocks implant gives great fullness to the lower half of the buttocks, but does almost nothing for the upper half. Subfascial surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.
