When it comes to buttock augmentation, the use of butt implants is among the top choices of women because it gives them the size and shape that they want to have. However, they are very curious about the procedure which is a good thing. In my practice, among the frequently asked questions that I hear from my patients is whether a butt implant will leak or rupture.
Most patients think that breast implants is the same as butt implants. But they are not, absolutely! The breast implants are vulnerable to rupture and leakage but the butt implants are not. I will give you an overview and comparison in order to clear the misconception in your mind.
A breast implant is composed of a silicone shell that is filled with liquid saline or soft silicone gel. These substances can easily get compressed by surrounding tissues. That is why it is considered delicate and it is prone to rupture and leakage.
A butt implant, on the other hand, is composed of heavy duty and durable semi-solid silicone material. This feels soft to the touch and it closely imitates the human tissue. Butt implants are far from leakage and rupture because of its robust construction; high quality and high-performance implant grade material. Because of these, they can withstand force, collision and immense pressure. Moreover, butt implants are not filled with other substances like what the breast implants have. From inside and out, they are rubber-like.
Because butt implants cannot leak or rupture, the results of the surgery can last a lifetime. You don’t have to worry about implant displacement, shifting, capsular contracture, or infection as well. It is safe to say that the results achieved in a butt implant surgery are permanent as a result of the durability, stability, and immunity from rupture of the gluteal implants.
