This surgery is indicated for those persons who wish to lift and give volume to their buttocks. By means of cohesive silicone gel implants which are placed behind the main gluteus muscle, it lifts the lower part of the hip. That way, the persons who are not satisfied with their gluteus can find a way to feel more attractive and desirable.
A small inter-gluteal incision is enough to be able to introduce the implants, which are similar to breast implants in means of their structure, but they vary in size and thickness. The operation lasts an hour and a half and requires general anaesthetic or an epidural. The recovery is in the hospital during 24hours.
