In recent years, the gluteal area has become more important to the silhouette of both men and women, increasing the demand for gluteal augmentation surgery.
Gluteal augmentation is appropriate for people who have very flat or asymmetrical glutes and for people who have experienced significant weight loss after bariatric surgery.
It is performed using three techniques:
Using gluteal prostheses made of silicone gel specific for this zone, through an incision in the intergluteal fold. The great advantage of this technique is that the muscle hangs on the prostheses that will always remain elevated, giving the upper gluteal area a very good shape and contours.
Another technique consists of grafts of the fat of the patient (lipofilling). This technique is called the “Brazilian butt lift” .
The advantage of this technique is that the graft can be placed in the desired areas and give the gluteus a better shape. However, there must be enough fat to extract from abdominal areas, thighs and hips.
The perfect technique, and which we use at the Pérez de la Romana Institute is a combination of the two techniques described above, i.e. silicone implants and fat injections to reshape the limits of the prosthesis and achieve gluts that are as natural as possible during a long period of time.
This intervention is performed with epidural anaesthesia. The patient must remain at the clinic for one day.
During the first week after the operation, the patient must sleep in a prone position (face down) and on their side.
We recommend wearing a compressive garment for a month. After a week, the patient can return to their usual routine.
During the procedure, an incision is made in the intergluteal groove which is completely hidden by any type of underwear or bikini.
The gluteal augmentation provides immediate results that are visible from the day of surgery and are generally permanent. Therefore, you should not worry about repeating the procedure.

The gluts are usually augmented with special silicone prostheses. However, in recent years we have performed lipofilling, a procedure that involves taking fat from the body of the patient and injecting it into the gluteal zone. In most cases it is better to combine the two techniques because fat completes the gluteal shape, since the prosthesis may be limited or incomplete.
It is important after the gluteoplasty that you remain in prone position for the first two or three days. Thereafter you can then change your posture, but you will not be able to lie on your back until after ten days.
Yes. In slender patients it is not advisable to perform injections in this gluteal area. Despite the fact that the prosthesis is placed between the muscles, it is advisable to perform injections in another area of the body.
During the first month after the operation, the patient should not perform exercises in which the gluteal muscle contracts or which involve violent movements where weight is rested on this area.
