Buttock prosthesis operations are performed under general anesthesia. It takes about 2 hours in average. Patients usually stay in the hospital for one night. The body movements are not limited after Buttock prosthesis procedures except sitting position. The patient could return to normal work life after 10 days. Buttock prosthesis operation is not a very painful operation; there could be tension and irritation for the first 48 hours. These could easily be relieved with painkillers. The patients could experience a mild difficulty in sitting after the operation. The patients have to use special support for the first 4 weeks. Heavy exercise, especially running should not be performed until the sixth week. The disappearance of edema and obtaining the final shape of the prosthesis after the operation could take 2-3 months.
Buttock prosthesis is placed at the proper place (under the muscle) by making a medium, even small cut, and the cut stays hidden under the underwear. The scares usually take an indistinctive form in time and they are hidden scars. Still, the healing of the scar is specific to the person in question. Very rarely, some patients may experience excessive scar healing (cheloid, hypertrophic scar).
