Many men and women are dissatisfied with the size, shape and contour of their buttocks. Underprojected, flat and/or sagging buttocks do not fit their ideal self-image. Body-image is an important part of feeling good, desirable and confident. For many, this surgical procedure can dramatically affect the quest for a beautiful body.
Buttock implants, also known as gluteal augmentation, gluteal implants or gluteoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to add fullness and projection to the underprojected or flat buttock area. This procedure involves inserting a soft, high grade, solid silicone, implant into the muscular space of the buttock area. To the touch, it has the feeling and consistency of a flexed muscle. Unlike breast augmentation, after this procedure is properly completed and healed, there is no reason to require additional surgery. These implants can be round or oval and come in a variety of sizes. A consultation and physical exam is needed to determine the appropriate size and shape for individuals.
The definition and contour of the buttocks is due to the size and shape of the surrounding tissues. Excess and localized fat deposits of the hips, waist, lower back and upper thighs may obscure the definition and shapely contour of the buttocks. Frequently, liposculpture of any combination of the hips, waist, low back and upper thighs is done simultaneously with buttock implants to enhance the shape and contour of the buttocks.
For those who have excess sagging of the skin or folds of the buttocks, a buttock lift from above, or a local skin excision from the crease below, may be desirable. This is usually reserved for more extreme cases with the understanding that more extensive scarring will result. Generally, these scars are easily hidden within the bikini, bathing suit or undergarment lines.
An ideal candidate for buttock implants (gluteoplasty) is a man or woman dissatisfied with the underprojection or flat appearance of their buttocks who is free of any complicating pre-existing medical conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, skin/connective tissue disorders, etc.
