It is made through a 4 to 5 cm vertical incision in the intergluteal groove, where the scar is not visible. From this small incision the gluteal implants are introduced, which are positioned in a submuscular or intramuscular plane depending on the quality and quantity of tissue present to cover the implants without seeing or palpating, thus achieving natural results; The larger the size of the implants and the smaller the amount of tissues present, the more obvious the results will be.
Buttock implants are indicated in patients who have sufficient volume of fat to transfer in other areas and seek a permanent result.
You should always analyze the requirements and expectations of each patient, in addition to other medical issues such as the patient’s anatomy and recovery time. We use round or oval implants according to the case.
The increase of buttocks with fat has a recovery time with lower limitations in mobilization and less discomfort compared to gluteal implants. After a gluteal increase with fat, you progressively return to normal activities after 3 to 5 days, while after an increase with gluteal implants it takes 2 or 3 weeks to return to normal activities.
The estimated surgical time is approximately 1 to 3 hours, it depends on each patient. Frequently this type of surgery is outpatient, but if the case requires it, you must opt for 1 day of hospitalization. General anesthesia is generally used and is always used in combination with local anesthesia for a comfortable recovery without pain, but this will depend on the anesthesiologist’s assessment.
Buttock augmentation is achieved with gluteal implants or with fat from the technical patient himself who is also called gluteal lipofilling, gluteal fat filling, or lipotransfer.
The increase of buttocks with fat consists of extracting fat from different areas such as hips, waist, abdomen or thighs which adds the benefit of performing a liposculpture in those areas; Then the fat is purified and injected into the buttocks with cannulas through minimum incisions of 2 to 4 mm, so it does not leave visible scars.
The gluteal lipotransference is indicated when the patient wishes to improve their body contour through a liposculpture in addition to increasing the buttocks.
