I want silicone buttock implants and a butt lift or thigh lift for the sagging skin under my buttocks..
buttock implantsthigh lift

My current plastic surgeon does not do these procedures and told me to be careful and research thoroughly because of the risk of infection and complications with the implants.

Are the implants safe? I know they are inserted high in the buttock and in-between the muscle.

Can they move over time?

Why is that area more at risk for infection than say breast implants?

I am considering the belt incision, I already have the tummy tuck incision. I'll have a nice line all the way around. LOL!!

Will that back incision be hard to care for?
Will it be placed so that a thong bikini will cover it up?

My legs are great except for a little inner thigh looseness.

Can that be lifted too at the same time?

Sorry for the long message!
I hope you can relieve my mind.
