Buttock augmentation can be done in both men and women. The technique is the same in both cases although aesthetically there are some differences. In men, the aim is to enhance the silhouette of the gluteus maximus muscle, so that the buttock looks more muscular. In women, the aim is to give the buttock the most rounded shape possible, voluminous and with a natural appearance.
Buttock implants are a very effective way to improve the shape and size of the buttock. This has helped many patients achieve a more sensual appearance, improving not only their appearance, but also their self-esteem and self-confidence.
Buttock surgery is a cosmetic surgery that should be performed by a qualified professional who provides safety and also has excellent experience in this type of procedure. Dr. Carlos Rivera has nearly 20 years of experience in plastic surgeries with highly satisfactory results and is the ideal surgeon for your buttock surgery due to his academic preparation, experience and human quality.
This surgery is mainly requested by men and women who are not satisfied with the size of their buttocks, or have the sensation that they lack shape. Buttock augmentation with implants is a surgery suitable for thin patients, without accumulated fat and with little or minimal muscular mass where liposculpture cannot be performed to remove fat and reinject it.
As a first step, the volume of the implant is chosen with the patient according to the doctor’s recommendation. In this procedure, small incisions are made between the folds of the buttocks and the silicone implants are introduced intramuscularly, that is, inside the muscle. Once they are properly positioned, the incisions are carefully closed and Dr. Rivera places a little fat to mold and harmonize the gluteal contour. After that, the patient is ready for recovery.
Since the incisions are small and are made between the folds of the buttocks, the scars are hidden from view. In addition, with the passage of time they will become less noticeable until they are practically imperceptible.
Patients who undergo gluteoplasty or buttock augmentation surgery with implants report moderate pain according to the pain tolerance of each patient and others report a type of discomfort during the postoperative period. This is due, primarily, to the fact of having to keep resting in the ventral position (face down) during the first days. It is appropriate to avoid sitting or sleeping on your back during these days and wait at least 6 weeks to be able to perform activities that require physical effort. The doctor will prescribe painkillers that will considerably reduce the discomfort caused by surgery. In any case, in case of exaggerated pain that does not subside with medicine, it is appropriate to immediately inform your surgeon.
For foreign patients the surgeon must make recommendations on the recovery time that entail stay within the city since for patient safety is requested that the patient must be at least 3 days before the scheduled date for surgery in order to take prophylaxis or preventive measures with the plastic surgeon and the anesthesiologist since the safety protocol indicates that if the patient comes from a trip of 6 or more hours, he/she must wait 72 hours to undergo surgery, should wait 72 hours to undergo surgery, since staying still in the plane for a long time affects the circulation, and the risk of thromboembolism during the operation is higher. This simple preventive measure greatly reduces the number of complications. This prevention is advisable for those who come from Europe, West Coast of the United States, New York, Canada, Argentina or Chile, those who come from Miami, the wait is reduced to 48 hours. After a gluteoplasty or buttock augmentation the ideal is that the patient does not travel before 10 days or is performed according to the indications of the plastic surgeon since the recovery and healing times are different in each of the patients, and each of the cases must be individualized. Patients who live nationwide will need 7 days before their trip. It is important that the plastic surgeon issues a medical certification document that will be required by the aeronautics to travelers. The certificate must be issued no later than 10 days before the date of travel.
The post-operative care after buttock augmentation surgery with implants will basically refer to the fulfillment of the medical indications. Among them we can mention the intake of antibiotics and analgesics, the application of ice permanently in the area, a soft diet during the first 48 hours and very specifically, rest. Adequate rest will be on the stomach. Patients must attend every control to which they are summoned and strictly comply with medical prescriptions. At home, the patient can sit, shower and even sit normally in the toilet, although it is very important to avoid getting the scar wet while the bandage is on. After going to the bathroom, an excellent cleaning with soap and water should be performed and then apply an antiseptic on the wound, that is to say, an impeccable hygiene and cleanliness should be maintained to avoid infections.
