Gluteoplasty

 
 

 

What is

Gluteoplasty
 

Buttock augmentation or gluteoplasty is the procedure through which the size, shape and volume of buttocks may be modified, in accordance to the wish of each patient. This may be accomplished with only two surgical options: Buttock lipo-injection also known as Brazilian Butt Lift or with buttock implants.

This fat is obtained from the abdomen, back and thighs which allows us to mold all the patient´s figure in the same procedure and integrate said molding to the silhouette obtained in the buttock surgery styling the whole figure. On selected cases I use buttock implants for buttock surgery. This technique allows a natural, harmonic and non-artificial result; we do not offer exaggerated results or those that may look disproportionate.

FAT LIPO-INJECTION 

OR BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT

Characteristics:

Fat lipo-injection in de buttock or butt augmentation is the first choice in buttock enlargement. We use a technique for processing gat that significantly reduces its reabsorption or loss and it allows to keep most of the volume placed. Nevertheless, I always lipo-inject more fat given that a percentage is going to be reabsorbed.

Every technique may be appropriate, the important thing is that they are made with a certified plastic surgeon who advises on the most appropriate technique for you.

Buttock 

Implant

Characteristics:

Buttock or butt augmentation surgery, may also be made with this technique. It consists of placing silicone implants, other than mammary. These are placed inside the buttock muscle, never underneath the skin.

Every technique may be appropriate, the important thing is that they are made with a certified plastic surgeon who advises on the most appropriate technique for you.

1What other names is this procedure known as?
Gluteoplasty, Brazilian Butt Lift, buttock augmentation, butt enlargement, buttock implant, buttock surgery, buttock lipo-injection.
2 Is it true that fat that is placed in buttock augmentation is reabsorbed? If so, how much?
Yes. A variable percentage is reabsorbed. Part of the volume that is reabsorbed is the volume in very liquid blood and fat that is put. Thus, the surgical technique that we use ensures special treatment of said fat, when removing excess and that only pure and vital fat is lipo-injected ensuring significant reduction of reabsorption. The percentage is variable but not more than 35%.
3I have seen other treatments for buttock enlargement with vitamin C and/or Hyaluronic Acid, do they work?
Yes. A variable percentage is reabsorbed. Part of the volume that is reabsorbed is the volume in very liquid blood and fat that is put. Thus, the surgical technique that we use ensures special treatment of said fat, when removing excess and that only pure and vital fat is lipo-injected ensuring significant reduction of reabsorption. The percentage is variable but not more than 35%.
4Are the same implants for breasts used in gluteoplasty with implant?
NO. Implants for buttock surgery are special and with the shape of a tear that simulates the shape of the buttock muscle.
5If I use implants will it be noticeable when I exercise or if I duck?
NO. Intramuscular prosthesis placement gives good coverage to prosthesis so that it is not noticeable and it fits buttock tissue.
6If I use buttock implants can I have shots on the buttock?
No. After gluteplasty with implants injections must be put in arms.
7After surgery, when can I exercise again?
Each patient is special but about 1 month after surgery they start progressively.
8Can I lift buttocks with the Russian thread techniques?
They were tried for some time. Nevertheless, none of these systems has significantly shown support of tissues because they are heavy, support tension and pressure when sitting and walking thus they are not useful.
9How long is the recovery?
Patient may return to your working activities starting on the fourth day if buttock augmentation is made with fat lipo-injection. With implants, it may take six to eight days.
10What post-surgery precautions must I have?
Basically, to follow recommendations and take medicine. Physical activities such as sports may be done again after the first month. If gluteoplasty is made with implant, you must sleep face down for 2 days and be careful of the way you sit during the first days.
