– by silicone implants
– by transferring fat from another area of the body
– by injecting hyaluronic acid into the area
The procedure lasts 2 to 3.5 hours.
After the surgery, the patient is discharged the same day (fat transfer, augmentation with hyaluronic acid) or stays in the hospital for 24 hours (augmentation with implants). While there is some pain, it is likened to a sense of discomfort.
The patient must wear a compression garment for 4 weeks and return to work in 5-10 days, depending on the range of surgery. Exercise may resume after 6 weeks.
In liposuction and augmentation with hyaluronic acid, the incisions are virtually invisible.
In augmentation with silicone implants, there is a 5 cm incision in the mesogluteal fold.
