Gluteal (Buttock) Implants

realself-top100-doctor-2015Gluteal (buttock) implants are used for patients who want to have a fuller buttocks and this procedure augments the gluteus maximus muscle area in order to create a shape that is more desirable. This procedure is also an excellent option if the patient wishes to change the size or shape of their buttocks in order to enhance their appearance. The buttocks is an area of the body that is not easily enlarged or shaped by weight lifting or diet. Gluteal implants are extremely soft and solid implants that help patients to obtain a more desirable buttocks.

Many people don’t know that they can change and enhance the shape of their buttocks through a surgical procedure called Buttocks Augmentation. Microfat Grafting is the most frequently chosen method for enlarging of the buttocks.

In order to undergo Buttocks Augmentation, the patient needs to have enough extra fat in areas such as the hips, lower back, thighs, flanks or abdomen. The excess fat will be removed with a low-vacuum, gentle liposuction tool called a cannula (thin tube), which will protect the living fat cells. The fat is then purified and is inserted into the layers of the buttocks through a small 1/8” incision which distributes tiny droplets of fat throughout the tissues, ensuring that each cell has access to a good blood supply.

The Perfect Candidate – The perfect candidate for someone desiring more fullness to their buttocks. Micro Fat Grafting is an easy procedure, but the patient must have enough excess fat in other areas to be removed and used in the Buttocks Augmentation process.

What causes the shape of your buttocks?

The shape of your buttocks is based on how full your gluteus maximus is, in addition to your gluteus medius and minimus muscles in conjunction with the angle of the lumbosacral curve that is located at the base of your spine. If there is a deficiency in your muscle mass or the angle of the lumbosacral curve, it can cause you to have a buttocks that is not as desirable as you may like. If you have a deficiency in your muscle mass or the angle of the curve, you may consider having gluteal implants.
How do gluteal implants work?

Gluteal implants are made from soft and solid silicone. Solid silicone implants give your buttocks significant dimension and contour. Gluteal implants are inserted through an incision that is made in the fold beneath each buttock cheek and they are put between the muscle and the bone. Gluteal implants are different than breast implants because they are firm. Another benefit of gluteal implants are they can actually smooth out your skin.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
