Gluteal augmentation


Gluteal augmentation or gluteoplasty is a surgical intervention that aims to shape the bodily silhouette to give it a slenderer appearance.

We can increase the volume of under-developed buttocks by introducing an implant or a prosthesis using an intramuscular technique. Another option is to use the patient’s own fat, avoiding in this case the use of implants and offering a completely natural result.


Surgery time

90 minutes


General anaesthesia


Overnight hospitalization


One week


With autologous body fat transfer:

We can reshape the overall profile of the buttocks via autologous fat injections, which is tissue that is extracted from the same patient via liposuction, thereby ensuring complete compatibility, avoiding problems associated with synthetically filled material, and combining the benefits produced by using liposuction in other areas of the body. This procedure is very versatile in that it allows us to place the fat wherever we need it most without the limitations inherent in implants.


Gluteal augmentation requires analgesics as there is discomfort during post-operative phase. Furthermore, in order to avoid the displacement of the implants the patient must rest up and not make any important physical exertions. With a few days off work and the requisite pain-killers the patient can return to work before two weeks are up. Once the stay in hospital is over after the gluteal augmentation operation, the patient must follow the medical treatment given by the doctor, which includes, amongst other guidelines: sleeping face down and wearing an orthopaedic corset for three or four weeks.


The price of the procedure varies according to the areas treated, the type of anaesthesia used and the need for hospitalization.
