Techniques for improving the appearance of the gluteal region are important elements in body contouring. In all cultures and communities, this aspect of the physique holds a special place among the elements comprising the ideals of physical beauty. Recent studies described the aesthetics of the gluteal region in terms of shape, volume, and projection. Accumulation of fat at the supragluteal, lower paralumbar, infragluteal, and/or trochanteric areas often disturbs the natural shape of the… Expand
Restoration of Inferior Gluteal Crease in Combined Lower Buttock and Posterior Thigh Lifting
TLDR
The lower buttock and upper posterior thigh lifting can be safely combined with preservation of the inferior gluteal crease, and it’s a useful procedure for correction of therecordedgluteal contour deformities with high patient satisfaction rate. Expand
a review of recent advances in aesthetic gluteoplasty and buttock contouring
TLDR
Surgical techniques to improve buttocks contour have evolved dramatically over the last two decades and increasing number of patients are asking for esthetic improvement of their buttock profile or for correction of a deformity or irregularity. Expand
Physical attractiveness: analysis of buttocks patterns for planning body contouring treatment
TLDR
The results suggest that utilizing digitalized reference values for a given body region may be an invaluable tool for determination of the correct fat volume, thus individualization of body contouring procedures. Expand
Buttocks Contouring Surgery: Liposuction without Fat Grafting, When Less Is More?
TLDR
The authors present a concept of modeling the buttocks, without acting on it directly, by performing liposuction in its surroundings, making the buttocks stands out, giving the impression of augment, modeling and suspension of this area. Expand
[Esthetic gluteal remodeling by fat grafting].
TLDR
Fat grafting is a reliable technique, simple and safe procedure to remodel the buttocks and is an excellent indication for moderate buttocks remodeling. Expand
Gluteal Augmentation With Fat: Retrospective Safety Study and Literature Review
TLDR
Patient safety is a priority, and preventive measures should improve safety because appropriate patient selection, avoiding muscular and submuscular grafting, avoiding infragluteal incision, moderate grafted volume, and direct postoperative mobilization are essential. Expand
Fat Grafting for Gluteal Augmentation: A Systematic Review of the Literature and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Fat grafting is an effective and predictable way to remodel the gluteal region; however, the procedure is not without risks, and avoiding most feared complications, such as fat embolism, is recommended. Expand
Safety and Efficacy of Combined Gluteal Lipofilling with Silicone Cohesive Implants for Gluteal Enhancement in an Egyptian Population
TLDR
Gluteal lipofilling can thus safely and effectively be combined with silicone implants for gluteal enhancement, giving better shape and projection and avoiding implant dissatisfaction. Expand
Autologous fat injection into the pectoralis major as an adjunct to surgical correction of gynecomastia.
TLDR
Autologous intrapectoral fat injection performed simultaneously with gynecomastia correction can produce a masculine appearance and the long-term viability of fat cells injected into the pectoralis major needs to be determined. Expand
Clinical Implications of Gluteal Fat Graft Migration: A Dynamic Anatomical Study
TLDR
The intramuscular insertion of fat, which up to this point has been considered reasonable to perform in the superficial muscle and even recommended in the literature, is now deemed to be an inexact and risky surgical technique. Expand
