Technically known as augmentation gluteoplasty, buttocks augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the size and shape of buttocks. Both female and male patients can opt for this surgery.
You may choose to undergo buttocks enlargement for a number of reasons:
To increase buttocks volume caused by poorly developed muscles; to achieve firmness and definition of buttocks region; to enhance hip curves, particularly when they are narrow; to considerably improve the whole context buttocks-hips; to obtain a mild buttocks lifting effect.
This procedure also may be performed using patient own fat, which is extracted from another part of the body, but only in special cases where a lot of volume is not required. This depends on the surgeon’s approach and the patient’s desires.
Types of anesthesia This surgery requires general anesthesia, so that the muscle is perfectly relaxed and the surgeon are able to put the prothesis easily in place.
The surgery Buttocks augmentation surgery usually takes two to three hours.
The surgeon will make a small incision at the crease of tailbone approaching submuscular planes, creating bilateral pockets where soft cohesive gel implants will be placed at.
Anatomical designed buttock implants made of soft cohesive silicone gel are the only type of implants to allow a successful final outcome. They are safe, have natural adjusting capacity yet very strong and resistant, they feel natural allowing patients to have a normal life.
Buttock implants must be placed deep under the muscle where they look, act and feel natural.
Post-operative Stitches are removed between the 10 and 14 days. For a week you should sleep face down or sideways to avoid displacing or compressing the prosthesis. After 7 days to the procedure, you can sit down carefully.
Immediate post surgery recovery takes 12 days allowing you to return home after this time in the understanding that a complete recovery period will take a whole month and sometimes even a bit longer.
