Gluteoplasty is the procedure for enlarging the buttocks. It aims to project and add volume to the region for aesthetic reasons (loss of volume and / or fall), as well as to correct acquired deformities (trauma sequelae) and congenital deformities (agenesis or development disorders).
The objective is to achieve a harmony between the projection of the buttock, the curvature of the spine, the waist and the configuration of the hips. Augmentation gluteoplasty can be performed using autologous tissues, specific to the body (fat – through liposuction), dermo-adipose flap, muscle flap) or artificial materials (prosthesis, hyaluronic acid – Macrolane®, etc.).
There are cases in which, in addition to the increase in gluteal volume, a lifting or gluteal elevation is performed.
