Gluteal implants or Buttock Implants are used to augment the gluteus maximus muscle area and give a more youthful appealing shape.
The buttocks are supposed to be an area that retains body fat and contributes to the prominence of the buttock cheeks. But a lack of muscle mass or fat, or a certain curve of the lower spine can give the butt a less appealing profile — specifically one that lacks projection.
Many otherwise fit or physically active people lose fat in their buttocks and as a result, they find their shape less than ideal. Others find that their genes have prevented development in the buttock area. Gluteal implants can alleviate the dissatisfaction associated with these characteristics.
The implants are placed through an incision above or medial to the buttocks and sit beneath the fascial covering of the gluteus maximus, positioned high enough so one does not actually sit on them. Extra care is taken to ensure scars from the incision are discreet. Dr. Angelo Cuzalina performs these procedures under general anesthesia in Dr. Stover's Waimea surgical suite, with surgery lasting about 2 hours.
Results are dramatic - implants mimic the feel of physically fit gluteus muscles, and they exhibit a prominent and appealing shape. Dr. Cuzalina always aims to find a balance for the patient and a natural look. Recovery lasts 1-2 weeks, with a substantial part of recovery spent lying on one's side. This is accompanied by some tenderness and swelling, which subsides in a few days.
Gluteal implants, or buttock implants, are intended for men and women who would like more curves and/or a well-balanced physique.
