Gluteal implants are used to augment the gluteus maximus muscle area and give a more appealing shape to glutes or buttocks. The buttocks are supposed to be an area that retains body fat and contributes to the prominence of the buttock cheeks. However, a lack of muscle mass or a certain curve of the lower spine can give the butt a less appealing profile–specifically, one that lacks projection.
Many otherwise fit or physically active people lose fat in their buttocks, and, as a result, they find their shape less than ideal. Others find that their genes have prevented development in the buttock area. Gluteal implants in Tulsa, Ok can alleviate the dissatisfaction associated with these characteristics.
The implants are placed through an incision and sit beneath the fascial covering of the gluteus maximus, positioned high enough so one does not actually sit on them. Extra care is taken to ensure scars from the incision are discreet. Typical surgery time is two hours, under general anesthesia.
The results are dramatic. The implants mimic the feel of physically fit gluteus muscles, and they exhibit a prominent and appealing shape. Our goal is always to to find a balance that suits the patient and a natural look–as if they had been adorned that way without surgery!
A substantial part of recovery is spent lying on one’s side. This is accompanied by some tenderness and swelling, which subside in a few days.
