Gluteoplasty is a medical term used to describe the surgical procedure by which it seeks to increase the volume of the buttocks and improve its contour.

This procedure can be performed in two ways, through liposuction followed by grafting of adipose tissue (fat) directly in the area that you wish to improve, or through the inclusion of a silicone implant similar to those used in breast augmentation.

It is necessary to note that this type of surgery does not correct flaccidity, stretch marks or cellulite, and its primary objective is the replacement of volume. In cases of mild asymmetry in which the LipoGrafter is chosen, correction can be attempted, although in most cases some degree of asymmetry will persist.

Gluteoplasty in its two modalities can be performed with general anesthesia or regional block, and the initial recovery process can last between 2 to 3 weeks, during which the patient must follow some specific guidelines that will be given in the postoperative immediate to optimize the recovery period.

Always bear in mind that a gluteal implant, as well as a breast implant, is a foreign body for your organism, so a periodic follow-up with your surgeon is indicated in order to evaluate its behavior, despite the technological advances in the manufacture of the Implants have significantly reduced the complications associated with their use, while increasing their useful life. The above does not mean that implants are definitive and will never require change.

“Finally, remember that your health is also up to you, always follow your doctor’s instructions and avoid activities that compromise you such as smoking, drinking or ingesting any type of hallucinogenic substances.”
