Gluteal Augmentation (Buttocks and hips augmentation/ Implant placement or fat grafting)

Buttock augmentation, or gluteal augmentation, is used to improve the contour, size and/or shape of the buttocks. This is done through the use of buttock implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of the two.
Buttock and hips implants are silicone-filled devices that are surgically placed deep within the tissues of the buttock and hip.
Buttock and hip augmentation through the use of fat grafting involves the transfer of fat from one area of the body into the tissues of the buttocks. This technique is sometimes referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift.
