Buttock augmentation and contouring
Gluteal (buttock) augmentation and contouring are aesthetic surgical interventions by which specially designed silicone implants are placed between the two layers of gluteal muscles. Buttock augmentation does not significantly change the shape of the buttocks, but it does change the size and proportions to the rest of the body.
By placing gluteal implants, both inborn and acquired deformities of the gluteal region are solved. Buttock augmentation shapes the body and makes it more proportionate. Buttock augmentation may also be performed using the patient’s own adipose tissue, while bearing in mind that approximately 50% of the tissue is absorbed after spraying.

During the first consultations, the aesthetic surgeon will listen to the patient carefully, consider their wishes and adapt these wishes to actual possibilities. During consultations, in agreement with the patient, the most appropriate implants in terms of shape and size are chosen. Patients of any age are eligible for the procedure. Aesthetic buttock augmentation is usually performed under general anaesthesia. However, it can also be performed under regional anaesthesia.
Good results are also achieved with Aquafilling, a type of hydrophilic gel that is biocompatible with human soft tissue. It consists of 96-98% of 0.9% physiologic solution of sodium chloride and 2-4% of cation copolyamide. Buttocks are enlarged and reshaped, with results lasting five years or more.
