The Dangers of Silicone Buttocks Implants

Silicone buttocks implants, a type of cosmetic surgery aimed at enhancing the buttocks' shape and size, come with various dangers and risks. While some complications may occur soon after implant surgery, others can develop later. Infections, implant shifting or rupture, and capsular contracture are among the most common post-surgical complications. Less commonly, pain, hematoma, and seroma can also occur. Some individuals may be allergic to the silicone material, leading to allergic reactions and inflammation. Nerve damage may result in altered sensation.

Long-term complications may require additional surgeries for removal or replacement. Such complications may include capsular contracture, implant shifting, or discomfort while sitting or jogging. Unsatisfactory aesthetic results and potential emotional and psychological impacts should also be considered. If your buttocks implants are adversely affecting your comfort, health, or confidence, BBL reversal can help you regain normalcy in all areas of your life.

Benefits of BBL Reversal

BBL reversal, also known as butt implant removal, is a surgical procedure designed to reverse the effects of a previous buttock augmentation.

The benefits of BBL reversal can be significant for individuals who wish to reclaim their natural appearance or have experienced complications from the initial surgery.

  • Improved comfort and mobility
  • Elimination of implant-related risks
  • Enhanced aesthetic outcome
  • Emotional well-being
  • Reduced long-term maintenance
  • Avoidance of future complications

Ideal Candidates

Am I a candidate for BBL Reversal?

In general, BBL reversal surgery is typically considered for individuals who have previously undergone buttock augmentation with implants and are now experiencing complications, dissatisfaction with the results, or the desire to remove the implants for personal reasons. Patients who are in good overall physical and emotional health and who are not pregnant are generally candidates for this procedure. However, active infections, underlying health conditions, breastfeeding, or complications during a previous surgery may contraindicate butt implant removal.

BBL Reversal Consultation and Preparation

During your consultation, Dr. Shifrin will perform a physical examination to determine any complications related to your implants and ask questions to fully understand your concerns and medical history. Our Chicago BBL Reversal patients will also have the opportunity to ask any questions they may have to make the most informed decision about the treatment.

Dr. Shifrin will provide detailed information about how you can prepare for your treatment, how the procedure is performed, and what to expect during your recovery. Your consultation will also be the time to discuss any other procedures you may like to include in your treatment. For example, some patients may choose to replace the volume of their implants using a fat transfer procedure (also called a BBL). No matter your needs and goals, Dr. Shifrin will work with you to create a tailored treatment plan.

The BBL Reversal Procedure

The BBL reversal procedure involves making an incision near the implant site, carefully extracting the implants, and closing the incision. It is usually performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. The surgeon may also use liposuction to sculpt the area and improve contour.

BBL reversal typically takes between one and three hours to perform, and you will need a close friend or family member present to drive you home and assist you for the first 24 hours of your recovery.

Options for Revision

For the best results, most patients undergo buttocks reshaping to ensure beautifully sculpted results. This may include a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), in which fat from another area of the body is injected into the buttocks to enhance fullness, roundness, and symmetry. At the same time, you may opt for a lifting procedure for a youthful, toned appearance.

BBL Reversal Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Recovery after BBL reversal surgery typically involves minimal discomfort and swelling. Our Chicago BBL reversal patients may experience mild soreness for a few days and are advised to avoid sitting or lying on their backs for about two weeks. Dressings are usually removed after a week, and stitches dissolve on their own. Light activities can be resumed within a few days, while strenuous exercises should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. Compression garments may be recommended to aid in the healing process. Full recovery is expected within 4-6 weeks, with final results becoming apparent once the swelling subsides. Follow-up visits are crucial to monitor progress.
