Gluteal implants offer a good way not only to correct hypoplasias, but also to remodel and give rounded shape to buttocks, achieving beauty and sensuality. However, until recently, only a few surgeons have used this procedure. An intramuscular introduction of the implants may be a good means of reaching this goal, but because the undermining is performed without direct view, difficulties may occur in obtaining a symmetric and safe plane, and this can lead to unpleasant results.

Gluteoplasty using the Intramuscular (XYZ) Method

The intramuscular XYZ method was safe, both for primary and secondary surgery, to treat cases of asymmetry and/or visible implants, and Predetermining the XYZ reference points makes this procedure safe and reproducible.

Gluteal implants: the "XYZ" intramuscular method.

The author presents his XYZ technique, which provides anatomical reference points to guide the intramuscular dissection procedure in a feasible and safe way, resulting in a low complication rate.

A Simple Way to Avoid Sciatic Pain After Intramuscular Gluteal Implant

Intramuscular implants have been the preference in countries in which augmentation gluteoplasty has become popular, especially in Brazil, but has always had two drawbacks: intense pain in the immediate postoperative period and difficulty undermining the muscle in the correct plane, which may leave the implant visible and palpable.

Gluteoplasty: anatomic basis and technique.

When gluteoplasty is performed utilizing a systematic strategy based on bone anatomy references, it can be a predictable procedure with reproducible results and minimal complications, making the procedure simpler and safer.

The author advocates that the combination of lipoplasty with the submuscular technique described is safe, easy to perform, has a short operative time and low complication rates and can be preferred in buttock beautification as a simple and safe technique.

Gluteal Augmentation with Silicone Implants: A New Proposal for Intramuscular Dissection

A new approach to intramuscular dissection for gluteal augmentation with silicone implants is presented, a variation of the conventional surgical technique that involves well-controlled technical steps, especially during dissection of the intamuscular pocket.



Fat grafting of the buttocks and lower limbs

A low rate of complications (less than 3%) supports the authors' opinion that this is an efficient and safe procedure to correct or enhance contour deformities of the lower limbs.

Massive Extravasation of Traumatically Ruptured Buttock Silicone Prosthesis

It is concluded that early surgical treatment of extravasation injuries is needed and that buttock reconstruction with implants can be useful, but close follow-up is needed.

The course of the superior gluteal nerve in the lateral approach to the hip.

The so-called safe area of the gluteus medius muscle was found to be as much as five centimeters adjacent to the greater trochanter and if this distance is not exceeded by the intramuscular incision, the risk to the superior gluteal nerve and its branches will be minimum.

Gluteoplasty: A ten-year report

Several cases are presented in this article which are followups to the type of gluteoplasty described ten years ago, found that there was considerable postoperative improvement for the patient and satisfaction for the surgeon.

Arrangement and innervation of the glutei medius and minimus and the piriformis: A morphological analysis

In order to examine the relationships between the positional arrangement and supplying nerves of the glutei medius and minimus and the piriformis, 49 pelvic halves of 28 cadavers were investigated and the detailed findings of the innervation of the three muscles were found.

Late Hematoma After Aesthetic Breast Augmentation with Saline-Filled, Textured Silicone Prosthesis

Two cases of late capsular hematoma after augmentation mammaplasty with saline-filled, textured silicone implants are presented and the breakdown of an eroded capsular artery is suspected.

Late Hematoma After Aesthetic Breast Augmentation with Textured Silicone Prosthesis: A Case Report

A case of late hematoma after breast augmentation with textured gel-filled silicone prostheses, which appeared after intense physical effort 1 year after the implantation of the prosthesis.

Capsular hematoma as a late complication in breast reconstruction with silicone gel prostheses.
