Hydrogel butt injections are minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that make the posterior area more substantial…in a good way. The main components of the injection solution are water and polyacrylamide. Once the solution enters the body, the polyacrylamide acts as a filler to add to the size of the butt and give patients a more shapely silhouette. The effects of these injections are impermanent – they disappear after about eighteen months. The United States government has yet to legalize this buttocks enhancement procedure. However, there is still a thriving foreign market for these butt injections.
For Whom is the Procedure
In theory, people who want extra volume in their backside are suitable candidates for this cosmetic surgery. Females who want that Coca-Cola bottle figure are the usual patients of this hydrogel procedure. People of all ages can also ideally obtain hydrogel butt injections. Most doctors, however, do not recommend getting this type of butt enhancement. They recommend instead safer, legitimate, more effective, and permanent procedures such as fat-transfer butt augmentation.
What to Expect
Hydrogel injection procedures are accomplished faster than more aggressive methods of butt enhancement. Treatments never need more than an hour or two. Consulting with the doctor about the enhancement areas must be carried out before anything else. These locations are marked to serve as patterns during the actual injection.
It is necessary to make a small cut on the skin for the entry of the cannula. This instrument is responsible for applying the polyacrylamide solution to the muscle tissues. One treatment area is usually injected a number of times. Massages are periodically given to the injected areas so that the fillers diffuse evenly to form the right shape. The use of compression bandages for the operation area contributes to recuperation.
There is only a small amount of discomfort experienced in butt injections. The recovery period is short as well. The swelling in the buttocks caused by the procedure should subside within forty-eight hours. Body temperature will slightly vacillate, while shape irregularity in the buttocks is another normal side effect. Result manifestation happens within two weeks from the injection.
Things to Think About
Hydrogel butt injections are illegal in the United States for a number of reasons. The ultimate reason is the inferior manufacturing standards of the solutions. These fillers are often cheaply made and unregulated. There may be harmful impurities and contaminants present in the solutions. However, there is still a market for hydrogel injections. There are self-administered hydrogel kits available through different shady sources. The risks are magnified in these situations because a certain level of expertise is needed to implement these procedures properly. Two women have already been reported to experience complications from do-it-yourself hydrogel shots that jeopardized their health.
The literal and figurative price of hydrogel butt injections can be astounding. One cubic centimeter (cc) of hydrogel is priced at three to five hundred dollars. A butt injection uses hundreds of cc’s which makes the total amount to be spent quite high. But before that, one must consider the substantial health risk posed by the procedure. Since there is no assurances that the hydrogel solutions are safe, those who get hydrogel injections are gambling with their lives.
