Buttock Lift / Gluteal Implants
During a buttock lift, an incision is made where the upper thigh and lower fold of the buttock meet. A pocket is made inside the gluteus maximus muscle and a silicone implant is put in place. Special considerations are made to make sure both sides of the buttocks are symmetrical. This procedure is performed in the operating room under a general anesthesia. Recovery time will require that the patient avoid sitting or lying on the buttocks for six weeks.
