Gluteoplasty

 

Improves the appearance of the gluteal area, improves the size and appearance of the gluteal area by placing silicone implants either below, in the middle, or above the gluteal muscle, thus producing an aesthetic improvement.

Gluteoplasty with Implants consists of the placement of a silicone implant filled with silicone gel under the gluteus. It is performed by making an incision of approximately 4 cm in the intergluteal groove, below the gluteus  muscle, and reaching through said incision to a pocket that is located below the gluteus where the prosthesis is placed. For this operation, biodimensional implants adapted to the characteristics of the buttock are used, formed by a highly cohesive silicone elastomer membrane with the consistency and resistance necessary for the region. Currently there are different types of silicone implants (round or oval, high or low profile, smooth or textured surface, etc.) and the choice of them varies according to the sex of the patient and what is to be achieved. Thus, for example, oval implants can be very effective for selective augmentation if the intramuscular technique is used, which allows many variations in their placement.

This procedure takes about two hours

 
 
 

 

A general anesthetic is administered to put the patient completely to sleep.

Mild to moderate temporary discomfort, minor swelling and bruising.

The implant may need to be removed and/or replaced to treat certain problems including:

  • Implant rupture.
  • Formation of scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture) that can cause the feeling of hardening or stiffness of the buttock.
  • Hemorrhage.
  • Infection and/or displacement of the implant.

The patient should sit as little as possible for the first 72 hours after the procedure and should lie on their stomach or stand up for most of that time.

You can start sitting up by putting your weight on the back of your thighs instead of your buttocks. Some doctors may recommend special sitting devices for the first 10 to 15 days after surgery.

The patient should wear a special compression garment in the buttock area and should not exercise or lift weights for several weeks.

The patient should not consume alcohol after the intervention, up to three weeks maximum. Bruising and swelling should go away after several weeks.

Results vary from patient to patient; however, the overall effect is improvement in the size of the buttocks resulting in a more aesthetic appearance.
