Gluteal Augmentation with Implants can be used to re-contour and increase volume of the buttocks
Implants are an alternative to fat grafting for augmentation of the buttock area. They allow for a reproducible augmentation, unlike fat grafting whose outcome can be a little more difficult to predict.
Patients that are not candidates for fat transfer or desire a simpler, more predictable procedure are typically a good fit for a Gluteal Augmentation with Implants or a Butt Lift.
Dr. Weiss begins your initial consultation by reviewing before-and-after photos of other butt lift patients, and will help you select the level of correction for you to achieve your desired look. All applicable costs will be reviewed during this confidential appointment.
Gluteal Augmentation is a surgical procedure performed in which specially shaped gluteal implants are inserted within the muscle overlying the buttock area. The surgery is performed to improve the contour of the buttock area.
This procedure has a two-week recovery. Most patients take a week off of work for recuperation after a gluteal augmentation procedure. It is all right to lie on your buttock but most prefer to lie on their side, stomach or remain upright during the first week. Patients require some pain medicine during the first week and some may experience bruising. During the second week, the patient is still sore but able to perform daily activities. Sutures are removed 7-10 days after the surgery, and physical activities may be resumed in a graduated fashion after 3 weeks.
