Risk of infection after buttock enhancement procedures
One of the most famous buttock augmentation procedures on the market today involves using silicone implants. This is being used when the patient doesn’t have enough fat in their body to be used for the enhancement of their buttocks. However, this procedure is also associated with infections. According to studies, there is 5-7% chance of having an infection after the surgery.
The site of the incision is exposed to a higher chance of having an infection. There are signs of infections that are noticed through the deformities in the shape of the buttocks. If the signs of infections are seen right away, it can be dealt with immediately to prevent further complications. However, if the infections are already severe, the surgeon would be required to remove the silicone implants. The area would then be treated and once it heals, new implants will be placed again after six months.
Here are other complications that are related to buttock augmentation surgery with silicone implants:
- Severe Reaction to Anesthesia
- Blood Clot Formation
- Dislodged Implants
- Excessive Scarring
What is the best way to avoid infection?
Make sure to find a Board Certified surgeon who has years of experience in doing this procedure. Properly handling the implants and putting them in place lessen the risk of possible infection. Also, with years of experience in the business with different patients and cases, they know what implants would best suit your anatomy and your aesthetic goals.
