Indications

Gluteoplasty is performed in the following cases:

  1. Flat buttock shape.
  2. Post-trauma buttock defects.
  3. Aging changes caused loss of shape, skin sagging, poor elasticity.
  4. A desire of a patient to enlarge the buttock in size.

Contra-indications

  1. ARVI, ARD;
  2. Acute exacerbation of a chronic respiratory or cardiovascular disease;
  3. Critical performance status (critical cardiac, respiratory, hepatic, kidney failure);
  4. coagulation failure.

Anyway, a decision on the surgery is taken on an individual basis by your surgeon. An additional examination and consult of specialized doctors are prescribed if needed.

Buttock plastic procedure

Buttock plastic surgery is performed using endoprosthesis replacement. Buttock implants are different from breast ones being more resistant to external effects as the stress on buttocks is much bigger (running, walking, sitting). There are 2 types of implants used in gluteoplasty – round and anatomic. Round implants have a constant shape and provide homogeneous augmentation, while more natural effect is achieved with anatomic implants. A type of implants used in the surgery depends on individual characteristics of the patient’s buttocks and her personal preferences.

A buttock augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about 1.5-2 hours. An incision up to 5 cm long is made above the bum fold to make stiches less visible. Then implants of 200-300 cm3 are inserted through it, more often under the dorsal gluteal muscle. If there is excess fat, then a liposuction procedure is performed before the buttock augmentation to get more esthetically attractive results.

Post-op rehabilitation

Patients experience swelling, might have buttock skin numbness and post-op pains during the rehabilitation period. A doctor prescribes pain killers in case of severe pains. Patients wear special compression garments after the plastic surgery. One should avoid sitting for 2 weeks after the gluteoplasty. It’s recommended to sleep on the stomach or on the side. One should stick to the middle ground when talking about physical activities – some minor activities are required to keep the blood supply in the post-op area for its faster recovery, however strenuous activities are prohibited. Another important restriction – if you had buttock augmentation with implants, you can no longer have intramuscular injection in this area, only in hip muscles.
