  journal={Aesthetic Plastic Surgery},
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. Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
