The inclusion of silicone implants allows to permanently increase the volume of the buttocks. If your body has no tendency to accumulate fat or you keep it in line with exercises and healthy life, the only surgery that allows you to give bigger size to your buttocks is a silicone implant, since there is no possibility of collecting enough fat as to resort to a lipotransfer. Accentuates the definition of the buttocks. This effect becomes particularly noticeable if the procedure is combined with a liposuction of the surrounding areas, such as thighs and waist.
By means of lipotransference, you will be able to increase the volume of your buttocks permanently. Fat injections have more durability in the buttocks than in other areas of the body, since the natural characteristics of the gluteals make them very apt to accumulate adipose tissue. With this technique of liposculpture, we can model the corporal forms. Your buttocks will not only stand out more because of the volume increase, but also in the balance with the neighboring areas, which are reduced during the collection of fat to transfer.
Planning your surgery
In the initial consultation, we will examine your buttocks, as well as your bone structure, to be able to make a good diagnosis of your problem and thus indicate the best treatment for you. You must inform us about your habits as to whether you smoke, or if you take any medication
Preparing for your surgery
We will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, including certain rules about what to eat, drink, smoke, and what vitamins, iron tablets, and certain medications to take or avoid. If you get a cold or an infection of any kind, especially a skin infection, you will have to postpone your procedure. When making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to take you home after surgery and to help you for a few days. Have comfortable, comfortable clothes on hand. Think that between your skin and your clothes there should be enough space for the bandages … and that your buttocks will take more place !. Remember that after the operation you should lie on your stomach.
Where will your surgery be done?
The surgery will be performed in the Sanatorium, which has all the necessary medical equipment for your safety and comfort. You should arrive about 30 minutes before the scheduled time, to make the entry procedures, make a complete medical history, and take preoperative photographs. In your room you can change clothes. After the surgery, he will stay in the clinic for two to four hours, until we make sure everything is in order and he can return to his home, where he will continue to rest.
Types of anesthesia
The buttock augmentation surgery can be performed under local, regional, epidural or general anesthesia. The technique we use combines a type of local anesthesia with a soft intravenous sedation, by which you will be awake, but relaxed, without feeling pain, and indifferent to surgery and whose effect will be gradually removed in the following hours.
The gluteal augmentation surgery lasts about 2 hours, both through the increase with implants and in the case of liposculpture. In the case of lipotransference, through a thinner canula than that used in a conventional liposculpture, we will extract fat from other areas of the body such as the lower back, abdomen, waist, and hips. Then we will submit this fat to a purification process and inject it into the buttocks, drop by drop, taking into account that in the area there are blood vessels that ensure good irrigation of the transferred fat. As only small scars will have 2 or 3 insitions of approximately 2 mm where the cannula will enter, where we will extract the fat from some areas, and then we will transfer them to your buttocks. In the case of using silicone implants, we will make a small incision between 5 and 7cm between both buttocks, within the depression that separates them. Through this incision we will form a pocket inside each buttock, to accommodate the implants of cohesive silicone gel. Positioned the implants will close the insición In none of the cases will have a visible scar.
To achieve a correct evolution of any of the two procedures available, you must use a special strip on the operated areas, for two or three weeks. It is annoying, unfortunately, but it is necessary. You may experience some pain, in some cases intense, which will be controlled by analgesic medication that we will prescribe. You should also take antibiotics for 7 days. The inflammation reaches its maximum peak during the first three days, and then decreases progressively during the following three or four weeks. It is likely that bruises that last up to 10 days and can move to lower areas of the body before disappearing. During the first two or three weeks, inflammation is likely to decrease unevenly. It is very important to maintain the hygiene of the area of the scar that is made to place the silicone implants during the healing process. The stitches will be removed around day 15 for implants, and at 7 days in the case of lipotransference. From the seventh day you can return to work, if it does not require you to do intense physical activity. Heavy work and physical exercises should wait approximately 30 days, depending on their recovery characteristics. It is during this period when patients usually suffer from depression. You may think you made a big mistake when you had surgery. Do not worry. Most people who are happy today and very satisfied with their results went through that depression.

You may receive praise and criticism, but the most important thing is that you feel safe and satisfied with your own body, that you can wear the clothes you like, the way you like it, and that you like yourself. when you look in the mirror. That is the goal of the surgery. And if it is reached, as it happens most of the time, we can talk about success.
