There are two basic procedures for buttock enhancement:
The gluteal Implants are solid silicone prosthesis. These are available in two shapes (oval and round) with wide range of sizes.
A detailed analysis of upper and lower buttock is mandatory to decide the size and shape of implant.

A pocket is dissected out in intramuscular plane depending on the size of the implant. The desired implant is inserted into the pocket and the wound is closed, with a vacuum drain. A pressure dressing is given.

After gluteal implant you need to wear a pressure /support garment for about 2-3 weeks. Final results are visible after 3-6 months as the swelling goes away and overlying skin gets settled accordingly.
