Silicone Gluteal Implants
Gluteal or buttock implants are generally sought by men and women who desire a fuller buttock or curvier appearance. Gluteal Contour defects are common and may be related to loss of fat in the Buttock area, a deficiency in muscle mass, or in the angle of the curve of the lower spine. These soft, solid silicone implants are placed into each buttock area through an incision hidden in the intergluteal fold and are positioned to look as natural as possible for the optimal cosmetic effect. It is very important to analyze the patient body and gluteal structure for balance, symmetry, size, shape and placement when selecting the gluteal implant. The intramuscular and subfascial buttock augmentation procedures are chosen based on implant shape, size and patient symmetry. Intramuscular augmentation involves creating a pocket within the large, gluteus maximus muscle. Generally this procedure requires the use of a smaller, round implant due to the limitations of the pocket size that may be dissected. In contrast, the subfascial augmentation procedure creates a pocket under the fascia, which is the membrane of tissue covering the muscle. Using this technique the implant can be larger in size and shape. Spectrum Designs Medical manufactures the Softest Solid Silicone Gluteal implants, designed specifically to enhance or reconstruct the shape of the gluteal muscle.
