What happens during a Hip & Gluteal Region Enhancement surgery consultation?

The surgeon, during the initial consultation, will examine the patient’s medical history and current medications. Based on the physical test, looking closely at the skin and body structure, the surgeon decides the changes to be made. The surgeon also understands the aesthetic goals of the patient. Before the surgery, the physical conditions such as body composition, skin elasticity, muscle strength, edema, BMI, internal fat, basic metabolic rate is also checked.

Then blood and other medical imaging tests are performed to determine one’s candidacy for the surgery. Finally, aesthetic goals are set, and changes to make during the surgery are listed. The patient is generally assessed clinically and by laboratory investigations for fitness for surgery.

During the consultation, the patients are advised to wear cycling shorts to try on the various implant samples at their consultation.

One must also stop tobacco consumption and smoking as it can cause post-operative bleeding and can delay the healing process.

Type of implant used during Hip & Gluteal Region Enhancement Surgery

The implants utilized for Hip & Gluteal region enhancement are different in shape and composition from chest implants. They are not gel or saline-filled. They are uniformly firm implants; hence the complication of implant rupture does not arise. However, patients undergoing implants need to take special care for up to 45 days after surgery. The lower back implants are firmer than the chest implants and are placed by making a small incision in the gluteal region. The incisions are easily hidden in this area and placed between the muscles so that they look natural, and it also prevents the implant from drooping. The strategic placement of the implant makes the lower back area look round and curvier in shape. The patient cannot sleep in the supine position for 10 days after implant surgery. Sporting activity or exercise must not be done for 45 days. These precautions must be followed to avoid wound dehiscence, implant displacement, etc.

Fluctuation in weight is better avoided after most body contouring procedures. Similarly, after enhancement, weight gain or weight loss can affect the patient's harmonious body proportions. This change in proportions can be more pronounced in patients who have undergone lower back enhancement with fat grafting; hence, it is advised to maintain stable body weight.

One should make a note that the implants do last for a few years. One must have to either remove or replace the implant.

Procedure of Hip & Gluteal Region Enhancement Surgery

Hip & Gluteal Region Enhancement with implants

This procedure is done via a midline sacral incision between the hips. Through the incision, pockets are dissected behind the muscle (Gluteus Maximus) on either side. Once the suitable sized pockets are made, implants are inserted, and the muscle closed over the implants. The skin is closed, and the patient is made to wear a compression garment. The procedure takes 90-120 minutes to complete. Implant placement is done through a 5cm incision placed between the hips. These incisions are well hidden from view.

Fat grafting or Brazilian butt lift

This treatment is performed by aspirating fat from preplanned locations like the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. This fat is purified and re-injected into different planes of the behind to enhance it. This entire process takes up to 3 hours to complete. Hip Region Enhancement with fat does not leave any significant scars as fat aspiration and injection are done through 3-5 mm incisions. Fat once injected into the hips requires a blood supply to settle down and survive. Approximately 60-70% of the fat survives in a properly executed fat grafting procedure. Once the final result is out, the patient is free to choose additional augmentation if he/she desires.

Many experts recommend fat grafting as this treatment uses the patient's own fat and carries a low risk of infection. It is one of the best options for people who do not want to insert any foreign object in their body.

Recovery after Hip & Gluteal Region Enhancement Surgery

After hip augmentation surgery with implants or fat grafting, the patient is expected to be in a prone position or lateral position while sleeping for at least one week. Sitting and walking are allowed one day after surgery but restricted from laying/sleeping on their sides for three to four weeks.

After surgery, the patient should wear comfortable attire that does not irritate the surgical area. The patient can go back home after the surgery on the same day. The drains are placed at the site of treatment for 5-10 days, and the stitches are removed after a week.

Which provides better results, fat grafting or implants?

Women who request behind enhancement do so to enhance their feminine appearance. Men request behind augmentation to achieve a more muscular-looking hip. Hip & Gluteal region enhancement can be achieved with implant placement or fat grafting and sometimes a combination of both.

Implants - Suitable sized implants are placed in the gluteus minimus muscle in a midline sacral incision. The results are instantaneous. Since implants are foreign bodies, greater care must be taken during the healing and recovery period.

Fat Grafting - This procedure involves aspiration or extraction of fat from other areas such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, etc. This fat is purified and injected into the buttock region. 30-40% of the fat is expected to be reabsorbed by the body. Hence, there is a certain period after which results stabilize. The recovery is relatively faster than implant surgery. There is an additional benefit of body contouring because of fat harvesting from the abdomen or thighs etc.
