Gluteal Implant


Improves the size and appearance of the gluteal area (buttocks) by placing silicone implants under, in between or above the gluteal muscle producing a cosmetic enhancement.


Approximately one and a half hours.


General anesthesia or epidural blockage is used.


Either, depending on the patient and doctor decision.

Possible Side Effects:

Mild to moderate temporary discomfort, mild swelling or bruising.


The implant may need to be removed and/or replaced to treat problems including: implant rupture, formation of scar tissue around the implant (capsular contraction), which may cause the gluteus to feel tight or hard, bleeding, infection and implant misplacement.


The patient must sit as little as possible for the first 72 hours after surgery and should lie on their stomach or stand up most of the time. They can start sitting down but putting their weight on the back of their thighs rather than on their gluteal area. The patient should wear a tight garment on the gluteal area and should not do any exercise or lift weight for several weeks. Bruising and swelling should be gone after several weeks.


The outcome varies from patient to patient; however, the overall effect is the enhancement of the gluteus (buttocks) size for an improved appearance.
