Abstract

Buttock augmentation is one of the most popular procedures to shape and augment the gluteal region. The major literature regarding this topic accentuates the role of the implant in gluteal shaping. The goal of this study is to present our personal experience and approach while emphasizing the role of implant positioning and structural fat grafting to yield a more satisfied buttock contouring. Gluteal implants were placed with various orientation mostly the more spherical portion facing inferiorly to simulate the round shape of the midportion of the gluteal region as an alternative to its classical positioning. Patients were analyzed based on the projection as well as the shape and contour of buttocks. Gluteal contouring with rationale positioning of the gluteal implants combined with structural fat grafting may play a role to yield a more satisfied buttock contouring.
