Buttock Augmentation Surgery – Gluteoplasty

Buttock Augmentation Surgery – Gluteoplasty | Butt Enlargement | Butt Implant | Butt Lift

Gluteoplasty is performed in patients with inadequate projection or flattening of the buttocks which occurs with ageing or with weight loss. It is to improve the shape of the gluteus.

An incision is made in the gluteal fold and a pocket is created within the gluteus maximus muscle and a preformed gluteal implant is placed within that pocket. Post operatively the patient is unable to sit, except when going to the bathroom for a period of 14 days. Although rare the implant pocket can become infected requiring removal of the implant and replacement once the infection has been controlled. To decrease the risk of infection, you will need to clean your buttock cleft with Betadine twice a day pre-operatively for a week.

Mild forms of asymmetry are also possible. A compression garment is worn for one month post op. Normal activity is resumed at two weeks and exercise can be started again at 2 months.

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Saul Braun operates from the Netcare Rosebank Hospital, situated in the up-market Northern Suburbs of Johannesburg.
