Body Implants

Implants can be placed in any area where there is a non-moving contour defect, such as the buttocks, biceps, breasts, calves, face, pectorals, penis and triceps. They can enhance body contours, increase volume and create balance and symmetry.


What is involved:

An incision is made at the site and a silicone implant is inserted either above or below the muscle. Surgery takes 1-3 hours and is usually performed under general anaesthetic on an outpatient basis.


Side effects:

Temporary discomfort, tightness of tissues, swelling, bruising and temporary nerve numbness or tingling.



Movement of the implant, infection, bleeding, hypertrophic or keloid scarring. If implants become infected they would most likely need to be removed, and then re-inserted once the tissues have healed.


Recovery and downtime:

Swelling and bruising may last for several days. Work can usually be resumed after 4-7 days but exercise not for 4-6 weeks.


The outcome:

Results are location-specific and are designed to realign the body through a subtle increase in volume to targeted areas. While most implants are used to create balance, custom implants can be made to recreate symmetry for patients who have had previous surgery, injury or disease.


How long it lasts:

Results are permanent.
