    due to lower back issues and double knee surgery; my orthopedic surgeon has advised me to not return to running or participate in lower body weight lifting.

    in the past year, my more-than-decent glutes have come to resemble deflated balloons.

    i thought perhaps i was being too self-critical; but others who have seen & admired my glutes have made vague comments about the lack of mass "back there".

    i have noticed my once snug levis don't fit as well as they did a year ago.

    i am considering having plastic surgery, specifically glute implants, done.

    has anyone here has this done?

    has anyone here felt (touched, squeezed, caressed) these type of implants?

    could they be broken during sex?

    Have you tried lunges? That's no really weight bearing. Or steps or walking up hill or doing an elliptical. All those things work the glutes.

    Are you kidding? I've never even heard of this. Thats about the last thing I'd need....

    And even if I did, I'd never convince myself to agree to such an expenditure.

    Find a physical therapist that is also an accredited personal trainer to help you with that. If you've had it before it shouldn't be a problem to find exercises that work your glutes while keeping your back stable and to keep your knees out of the equation. Working at a gym I see a lot of guys end up continuing to work out even though they have some serious knee, back, arm issues. Personal Trainers can help you work around the problematic areas.

    I would certainly spend money on a top notch trainer/physio before I considered surgery. Surgeons know their stuff... but their stuff is not weight lifting. Medical professionals who are not physios are often (in my experience) quick to say "nothing" when actually the answer could be "something". I am sure that you will have issues with your back and knees, but there may well be ways to work around that which doesn´t equate to NO training.

    Get the fake ass put in. Once it's gone, it is so hard to rebuild. Besides, no knees, no ass...period.

    Rawrly saidButt implants are usually made of a cohesive/solid silicone and therefore cannot break. If sized correctly they are virtually undetectable. Silicone is very soft to the touch, especially when placed under tissue. I know this because I have silicone in my body. Implant placement is important; you would have them placed under the muscle.

    You should really consult a surgeon and see a portfolio of his or her work in the area. That way you can truly decide if it is the right choice for you. Everyone's results and opinions will vary depending on the surgeon who has done the work.


    might I ask where?

    was this because you wanted it or because you were in an accident? If I am being too nosy, stop me. and by the way, you look great!

    I don't think implants are the first port of call. it should be perfectly possible to build up your glutes by exercise despite your limitations. I suggest you try and find a personal trainer / physio who is knows what they are doing.

    i have a patient who's had them in for years.... he recently had to have seromas (collections of fluid) that surround the implants drained... he was lucky no bacteria were cultured out of the fluid that was drained.

    point is that no matter how capable the surgeon or how healthy you are otherwise, you run the very real risk of having complications down the road.... the implants are foreign bodies and your body will not like them being there. since your buttocks are one of the most heavily 'used' parts of the body (sitting, etc.), you're likely to impact surrounding tissues in some way no matter how careful you are.

    PBS or was it the history channel? Well one of them had a feature on this a couple of weeks ago.

    About men putting in chest, calves and butt implants.

    If you want to do it go ahead I say. A firm upstanding bubble butt is to lick, nibble on and die for.

    Flat asses are boring and ugly as all get out

    Not at all sure you need to be going there... the easy way in this case may not be the best way.

    Besides tossing great kitties he's also right in this case. kind of odd for a cute young'n

    Having been under the knife many times I think the first thing to do is get a new orthopedic surgeon, one that woks out and runs. Try finding a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon.

    In Miami is a new clinic that spins your blood for stem cells and injects back into your knees to regrow cartilage, ligaments etc. Professional athletes from all over the world are going there. I also have a friend with similar story that is going there. After three shots he has made remarkable progress, his insurance pays for 75% of each shot. $ 780.00 per shot. He takes shots every 6 weeks. He needed only 3 shots and his knee was very bad.

    Then again if your not looking to rehab and your look is your only concern well have at it at 99 with a plastic surgeon. Brazil does the best butts, great vacation too!

    London has the best all over body plastic surgeon. He did a couple who were 85 from head to toe. Truly amazing results. I would recommend him to some 20 somethings. icon_lol.gif The price tag was around $25K per body. BTW.......I think LostBoy lives in London. Great vacation also.

    Get a copy of the A chorus line song. Dance 10 looks 3. Keep the best of you change the rest of you and go shopping on 5th Ave or Brazil. What the hell you're only 99 once. icon_cool.gif

    Elective cosmetic surgery is never covered by an insurance company. You can google the stuff to see pictures for yourself. I've seen some pictures long ago, and they did not look pretty or real. They're like breast implants, you can spot fake ones a mile away.
    Go to a doctor's office for a consultation so that you can feel them for yourself. This is not something that you want to skimp on.

    My friend in Rio is a cosmetic/plastic surgeon. Brazilians love their butts......and for good reason. But he says he refuses to do butt implants and his collegues won't perform the surgery either. Too many complications. They always end up shifting and moving and he said in almost all cases, the patient ends up having them removed.

    Makes sense. Think about it. Your always sitting on them, and walking with them most movements of the body, including sports, exercise, sex activate the butt area.

    I mentioned above a friend had a similar story. His orthopedic surgeon referred him to this clinic.

    http://arthritisusa.net/

    Center for Regenerative Medicine, Dr Almorad Farshchian. He has had three shots so far on his knees and has had great progress.

    Good luck!

    I'd check with a good personal trainer, there are some good glute workouts you can do without putting a lot of stress on your back.

    It is your body and your choice of course, but a silicon ass does not look like or feel like the real thing, I've seen a couple felt a couple, just not the same.

    And no, I don't believe your insurance would cover it, it's considered cosmetic, or vanity, surgery.
