Butt implants, or buttock implants, are intended for men and women who would like more curves and/or a well-balanced physique. This can improve an individual's buttock contour by creating a fuller shape. Made out of solid or semi-solid silicone, butt implants have a soft, natural feeling similar to a well-toned muscle.
Silicone implants have been available for more than 60 years. Modern silicone implants used for Body Contouring enhancement are soft, flexible and durable - safe and reliable. Silicone has come under fire since the early 1990's because of the silicone gel used in breast implants which was alleged to have caused autoimmune disease in some women. Highly controlled studies since that period have proven that silicone does not cause disease of any kind. Body Contouring Implants are made of solid silicone - soft but still solid without the controversial characteristics of silicone gel. Solid silicone has never been alleged to cause any disease in the human body.
Plastic Surgery Implants are made of the same silicone that surrounds many cardiac pacemakers. Most joint replacement parts are made with either solid silicone or coated with silicone to reduce the body reaction to the replacement part. No problems have ever been attributed to the silicone of these implants which is identical to the silicone of Plastic Surgery Implants.
