Currently, gluteal augmentation is one of the most valued procedures for both genders and a new trend in cosmetic surgeries.
When it is not possible to remodel the gluteus using the patient own fat, there are other alternatives, such as prosthesis.
Thus, this surgery has become an asset for those who cannot spend hours exercising and above all, for their genetics and the shape of their glutes.
Increase of Gluteus with Prostheses
The augmentation of buttocks with prostheses is indicated for those who want to correct aesthetic imperfections, as well as improve contour and shape. We recommend this procedure to people who are already in good physical shape, without having the necessary fat in their body for lipofilling.
This increase is performed in the operating room under general or epidural anesthesia combined with local anesthesia.
The choice of the prosthesis size takes into consideration the body proportion and anatomy of each patient. During the consultation with the plastic surgeon the patient can discuss the expectations, and, of course, should always consider advice given by our specialist.
Buttocks augmentation has one day of hospitalization and a recovery time of two weeks.
