A gluteoplasty uses silicone buttock implants to improve size and shape of the buttocks. It is a procedure requested by both male and female patients to enhance the profile of the body.
How it is done
The gluteal implants are inserted through an incision in the intergluteal crease, and can be positioned below the gluteus maximus muscle (submuscular), inside the fibres of the muscle (intramuscular) or on top of the muscle, right under the fascia that covers it (subfascial). The procedure takes about two hours and it is performed under general anaesthesia, requiring an overnight stay at the hospital.
The gluteoplasty with implants can be quite painful, and requires to adjust to certain rules of behaviour for the first few postoperative weeks. It is necessary to wear an elastic compressive garment for 4-6 weeks, and for the first two weeks after the procedure the patient is not allowed to sit except for brief moments. It is imperative to keep the wound clean at all times.
Duration of the result
Several years, but not exactly predictable. The duration of silicone implants for buttock enlargement is not known exactly, but it is foreseeable that they will need replacement after a number of years.
Cost of the gluteoplasty
The cost of the gluteoplasty starts from 12,000 KYD. As all the cosmetic surgery procedures are highly personalized, please consider that these prices are guidelines only and may vary for each individual case, depending on the exact procedure needed, the type of anesthesia and the length of the hospital stay.
