Can Hip and Buttock Implants Be Done During The Same Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Can you perform hip implant and butt implant surgery at the same time?

A: It is technically possible to perform buttock and hip implants at the same time…but that makes for a difficult recovery. I have had numerous patients go through this combo body contouring/augmentation surgery but they will tell you it was rough and it comes with increased risks of complications. (four implants and notes two) The other caveat is that the buttock implants have to be intramuscular if hip implants are concurrently performed or eyen in the future to keep the tissue pockets from merging.
