BUTTOCKS

What is it for?

Improves the appearance of the gluteal region (buttocks) by increasing its volume

 

What does it mean?

Buttock augmentation with implants, also called augmentation gluteoplasty, is a surgical procedure that consists in the placement of a silicone prosthesis in each buttock, with a type of silicone less "soft" (more cohesive) than the one used in the breast, allowing the increase of volume and projection. The preference of our team lies in the placement of the implants inside the gluteus muscle (gluteus maximus), and not outside the muscle and just below the skin, because the latter option leads to a higher rate of complications, namely deformity and capsular contracture. In patients who have fat deposits in other areas of the body, it is still possible to associate this technique fat grafting obtained by liposuction

 

Procedure time

2h

 

Other procedures that can be associated

Fat grafting (lipofilling)

 

Type of anaesthesia

General anaesthesia

 

Scars

The scar, about 6-7cm, has a vertical orientation and is barely perceptible because it is placed in the groove between both buttocks

 

Hospitalization

1 day in hospital

 

Recovery

You should avoid pressure over the area operated for 2 weeks, which implies some degree of dedication, and tolerance to a laid down position. You can return to work after 2 weeks, and resume physical activity at 6 weeks

 

Most frequent problems and risks

The most discussed problems are small asymmetries, excessive scarring or a delay in healing, hematoma or seroma, infection and nerve compression (sciatic nerve), although the latter are infrequent. Like any implant in another part of the body, either one or both may also have to be removed and/or replaced for the treatment of problems such as bleeding, infection, rupture of the implant or formation of "contractile" scar tissue around the implant - capsular contracture, which causes visible changes in the shape of the buttock

 

Longevity

The procedure is permanent
