The buttock implant (also known as gluteal implant or gluteal augmentation), will increase the size and appearance of the buttocks.  The procedure will place a silicone implant below, between, or above the gluteal muscles.  For instance if you want to consider a more pronounced or a more permanent shape this may benefit you.

Buttocks are considered a symbol of femininity and sensuality and this procedure can reshape the gluteal area to enhance this.  To clarify its focus is to provide an uplifted and shapelier buttock profile. 

This type of enhancement can be considered when buttocks are too small, too flat or too square.  Above all implants provide a balanced look with more curves and youthful appearance.  Keep in mind that your buttocks will be bigger, firmer and rounder.  

Best candidates

A consultation with a qualified surgeon can assess you as a candidate, however, those who are in good overall health and who are at or near their goal weight may be suitable for this procedure.


The average time in surgery for this procedure can take approximately one and a quarter hours.


There are two options possible either general anesthesia or epidural blocking.


Either inpatient or outpatient options are possible depending on the doctor's decision.

Possible side effects

Post surgery side effects can include; Mild to moderate temporary discomfort, mild swelling, or bruising.

There are risks

As with any surgical procedure there is some risk.  For instance implant rupture, scar tissue formation around the implant (capsular contract), which can cause gluteus pain, bleeding, infection, asymmetry and misplacement. Similarly implant problems may require the removal and/or replacement of the implant.


Post surgery for the first 72 hours, sit down as little as possible. To clarify either lie down or stand for most of the time.  After this, you can sit down. However, place your weight on the back and not the gluteal area. In addition special devices may be recommended to allow the patient to sit down for the first 10-15 days.

A tight garment will need to be work around the gluteal region for several weeks.  In addition, it is important to refrain from drinking alcohol, however you can resume alcohol consumption after 3 weeks.  Subsequently following several weeks, swelling and bruising should disappear.

To reduce after effects of surgery, follow your doctor’s recommendations closely and notify your doctor if you experience any signs of infection or other health problems.


The outcome of each patient will vary, however the general effect is to increase the size of the gluteus (buttocks), which will give you a more attractive appearance.

After a few weeks you will be admiring your fuller, more feminine buttock in the mirror. In addition, it takes about three months for your buttocks to reach their post-procedure posterior best.
