What types of surgical procedures are used to augment the buttocks?
Gluteal implants, also known as gluteal augmentation, buttock implants or gluteoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to add fullness, shape and projection to a man or woman’s flat buttock area.
Dr. Rajendra Shah and Dr. Samir Shah explain to their patients that a gluteoplasy is a surgical procedure designed to augment the buttocks by adding medical grade soft silicone buttock implants into the muscular space of the buttock region.
The gluteal implant procedure is done by making an incision is on either side of the gluteal crease where a pocket is created on top of the muscle, and the implant is placed in appropriate position. Much like breast implants there are several implant sizes and shapes to select from including, round and shaped implants. The sizes range from 200cc (small) to a larger 800cc for each implant. The implants are solid silicone.
Frequently, liposuction or liposculpture is combined with a gluteal implant as shaping the hips, waist, low back and upper thighs will improve and enhance the shape and contour of the buttocks. In certain cases, Dr. Shah will perform fat transfer with implants.
For those patients who have excess skin and drooping in the buttocks, a buttock thigh lift may be recommended in conjunction with the gluteal implant procedure.
Gluteal implant patients will experience some swelling and soreness after the procedure. Patients are advised to remain on their stomach and sides for the first 48 hours and a compression garment is worn for two to three weeks.
A gluteal implant is a good procedure for patients who desire a want a significantly fuller backside.
