What Is the Recovery Time for Dual Plane Buttock Augmentation?

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


 If you want to achieve the perfect hourglass figure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales may recommend an advanced procedure called dual plane buttock augmentation. But how long is butt augmentation recovery, and how long do butt implants last? While the recovery timeline generally spans two months, our patients say the results are well worth the wait. 

With dual plane buttock augmentation, less than 1% of patients experience complications or request revisions. In many cases, the implants can last a lifetime. Call Morales Plastic Surgery to learn more about this top-of-the-line surgery and how aftercare works in Houston, TX. 

What is dual plane buttock augmentation? 

Dual plane buttock augmentation involves combining butt implants with a fat transfer surgery to create a fuller, rounder behind. The implants feel soft and natural without sacrificing quality, and the technology only continues to improve every year. And since your own fat is used during the procedure, you can benefit from a more contoured appearance. 

However, not everyone is an ideal candidate for dual plane buttock augmentation. Patients should have enough body fat to cover and support the implants, be in good overall health, and have realistic expectations about their outcomes. This is because Dr. Morales wants to ensure that butt implant recovery is as smooth and successful as possible. 

How long is butt augmentation recovery? 

Following dual plane buttock augmentation, patients should return home with a responsible friend or family member in Houston, TX. Recovery can take up to two months, but Morales Plastic Surgery will offer detailed post-procedure guidelines to make the process as seamless as possible. While it's normal for the implants to feel a little firm at first, they should soften and settle into a more desirable position over time. 

Butt augmentation recovery does require some restrictions that need to be followed closely, including:  

  • No sitting directly on the buttocks for two weeks, except to use the restroom 
  • Exercise is only allowed two months after surgery 
  • Book follow-up appointments with Dr. Morales at the one-week, two-week, one month, and two-month marks 

Once recovered, patients can fully enjoy their enhanced curves and increased confidence.

So, how long do butt implants last? With proper care and maintenance, butt implants can last for many years. In some cases, they may even last a lifetime.

Patients are always welcome to call Dr. Morales with any concerns or questions about butt implant recovery.
