The surgery for the placement of silicone prosthesis in the buttocks presents risks as in any other surgery but when the procedure is carried out in a safe place such as a clinic or a hospital by a specialized team with surgeons well-trained, these risks can be diminished.
The placement of silicone prosthesis in the buttocks is one of the most common in Brazil, but during the surgery can happen in incidents such as:
1. Pulmonary embolism
The embolism occurs when a blood clot or fat, for example, moves through the bloodstream and reaches up to the lungs, blocking the passage of air. Learn what are the Symptoms of Pulmonary Embolism.
The local infection can arise if the material is not properly sterilised or if there are oversights during surgery. This risk is reduced when the surgery is performed in a suitable environment, such as in a clinic or hospital.
3. Rejection of the prosthesis
There is still the risk of rejection of the prosthesis, but this occurs in less than 7% of the individuals, although in this case it is necessary to remove the prosthesis to solve the problem.
4. The opening of the points
For the placement of the prosthesis in the buttocks are performed cuts into the skin and muscle, and in this case there may be the opening of the points, which is a more common situation and that needs to be treated with the use of the appliances own physiotherapy dermato-functional or repair of surgery. However, it is common that the location is off-white and with a scar. This opening is more common when there is the formation of liquid.
5. The formation of the accumulation of liquid
As is the case with any surgery, there can also be formation of the accumulation of liquid in the buttock, forming a region more high and full of liquid, scientifically calledseroma. The most common is that it is just liquid, no pus, which can be easily drained with a syringe by the doctor or nurse.
This liquid is more easily formed when they are carried out at the same time the surgery for the placement of silicone implants and also liposuction of the back and sides of the body, so that the result looks more harmonious, and so it is not recommended gluteoplasty along with liposuction.
6. Asymmetry of the gluteal
Depending on how the silicon is implanted in the buttock, one side may be different from the other, which can be observed with the muscles relaxed, or more often, with the muscles of the buttocks contracted. The decrease of this risk depends on the surgeon’s experience and to solve this problem you may need to do a fix with another surgery.
Fibrosis is a common complication after a plastic surgery, which causes the formation of small ‘bumps’ under the skin, which can be easily observed with the person standing or lying down. To delete, you can resort to physiotherapy dermato-functional, which uses specific equipment to eliminate these points of fibrosis, as
8. Contracture of the prosthesis
Especially when the silicone is placed under the skin and above the muscle can be that the body reacts by forming a capsule that encompasses the whole of the prosthesis, which allows its handling by any person, and may even turn the silicone prosthesis, or move it to the sides or down. To decrease this risk it is more advised to choose another technique where the silicone is placed within the muscle and talk about it with the doctor.
9. Compression of the sciatic nerve
Pro times the sciatic nerve that goes from the end of the column up to the heel, can be compressed causing intense pain in the back, with sensation of burning, or inability to move. In this case, the doctor should evaluate to see how you can decompress the nerve, but to improve the symptoms may indicate injections of cortisone, for example.
