Men and women who want to change or enhance the appearance of the buttocks may benefit from having certain surgical procedures performed. This includes the placement of gluteal implants during buttock augmentation. Buttock implants are made to shape the gluteus maximum muscle to create a contour that is more desirable. Because these muscles are difficult to enhance with diet and exercise, many patients will turn to cosmetic plastic surgery to assist. The size, shape, and contours of the buttocks are improved with the placement of gluteal implants.
What are buttock implants?
Buttock implants are similar to the type of implants used on other areas of the body, such as the breasts. They are soft yet solid, and are placed within the buttock area behind the muscles to add volume, shape, and protrusion. Alternatively, patients may not want as significant of an improvement and may instead consider the advantages of other options such as fat grafting. Fat grafting uses fat liposuctioned from another part of the body, often the midsection or thighs, and injects it into the buttocks for added volume. These two methods are both available with Dr. Sanjay Lalla, our bard-certified plastic surgeon.
Who is a good candidate for gluteal implants?
First, patients will want to consult with a plastic surgeon to decide if buttock implants and buttock augmentation are the best solution for their needs. Some patients may combine this treatment with others, such as a tummy tuck, liposuction, or breast augmentation to save money and reduce overall recovery time when compared to multiple, separate surgeries.
