If you undergo buttock augmentation by implantation, the results will be noticeable in about three months from the surgery. The buttocks usually have swelling after the implementation which is a default reaction of the body against the foreign object thus implanted. This swelling is harmless and usually goes away in about one to two months.
If however, you have opted for fat grafting for the augmentation, you will be asked to avoid
prolonged sitting and also sleep with your face down. The duration for the results to show
up will be gradual and will show over a span of four to five months.
In case of fat grafting, you will have to be specifically cautious about your fat gain and loss for that may mar the effectiveness of the graft.
