Plastic Surgery Case Study – Buttock Implant Replacements for Size Increase – How Much More Can Be Secondarily Achieved?

Background: Implants remain the definitive buttock augmentation procedure when fat grafting (BBL surgery) has ‘failed’ or there are inadequate fat stores to harvest. While implants provide an assured volume outcome their long-term success (lack of immediate or relayed complications) is highly dependent on the tissue pocket in which it was placed. As a general rule Read More…

Plastic Surgery Case Study – Male Intermuscular Buttock Implants

Background: While BBL surgery is the most common form of buttock augmentation today not everyone is a good candidate or achieves a satisfactory result. Some patients have inadequate fat to harvest while others have the BBL procedure but not enough fat survives to achieve their their aesthetic augmentation goal. As a result implants remain a Read More…

Experience with the Submuscular Buttock Implant Technique

Implants are the definitive buttock augmentation option in patients with inadequate fat harvest sites or who have had inadequate BBL (fat injection) results. The placement of buttock implants can be done in three different pocket locations, above the muscle (subfascial), inside the muscle (intramuscular) and below the muscle. (submuscular) No buttock implant pocket location is Read More…

Evaluation of Gluteal Muscle Atrophy in Intramuscular Buttock Implants

The intramuscular pocket has become the preferred location for buttock implants. As opposed to the historic subfascial location, deeper intramuscular pockets provide better implant soft tissue coverage which lowers almost all of the known buttock implant complications, particularly fluid collections, inferior migration and implant show. But this is not a natural tissue plane like the Read More…

The Dual Plane Pocket for Buttock Implants

The major change in buttock implants over the past two decades is improvements in the implant’s durometer and better soft tissue coverage of the implants. Buttock implants used to be made of a more stiffer silicone durometer which gave them a hard and unnatural feel. That has been improved by softer more gel-like durometers which Read More…
