Gluteal Augmentation

Overview of the surgery:
Gluteal Augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that uses buttock implants to increase the size and reshape the appearance of the buttocks. Incision may be made in any one of the following places: where the cheek meets the back of the thigh, or down the buttock crease. The incision is usually made in the buttock crease, where scars are not noticeable. The surgeon then creates a pocket large enough to insert the butt implants. The implants can be placed either under the gluteus maximus muscle, or on top of the muscle. Sometimes, the surgeon performs liposuction in order to further enhance the shape of the buttocks. After performing the same procedure on the other buttock, the surgeon makes sure the buttocks are symmetrical and look natural. Then he/she stitches up the incisions.

Duration of the procedure:
Buttock augmentation surgery normally lasts between 2 and 4 hours.

Post-Operative Care:
 You will wear a compression garment over the buttocks to provide support, which should not be removed for the next few days following surgery. It is important to take the medication prescribed to you by your surgeon to manage discomfort from swelling and bruising. Someone will need to drive you home, and you may need assistance at home over the next couple of days. Expect to be in bed for the next 24 hours following surgery. Refrain from sitting down until the incisions have bonded and early ambulation after the first two days of surgery to promote healing and effective circulation.

Recovery Period:
You’ll experience swelling and bruising in the buttocks for the first 2- 3 days after a gluteal augmentation procedure. Swelling and bruising will gradually disappear for about 1 month. You will need 4 to 6 weeks before full recovery occurs and normal levels of activity can be resumed.

Possible Risks and Complications
All surgical procedures carry some risk. The risks of undergoing buttock implant surgery include infection, unsatisfactory results, excessive bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, and the need for second, or sometimes third, procedures. Risks are minimal, although, as with any surgery, complications can arise.

Anesthesia use:
General or local anesthesia with sedation

Hospital admission:
Gluteal Augmentation can be performed on an out patient basis or in the hospital under local or general anesthesia. You and your surgeon will discuss preferences.

Preparation before Surgery:
  • Assessment of the medical history (any allergies, serious medical condition and all medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.
  • Smoking must be avoided for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
  • You will likely to be asked to stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your recovery period.
  • Avoid taking any medications such as hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating medical factors prior to surgery. Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
