Gluteal Implants Information
Gluteal or buttock implants are used to fill out the buttock area, specifically to augment the gluteus maximus muscle area producing a more desirable shape to the glutes. The shape of the buttocks is determined by the fullness of the gluteus maximus, the gluteus medius and minimus muscles plus the angle of the lumbosacral curve at the base of the spine. Deficiency in muscle mass or in the angle of the curve of the lower spine can contribute to lack of adequate projection of the butt. Additionally, the buttocks are an area that retains some body fat which contributes to the prominence of the buttock cheeks. Frequently in their zeal for minimal body fat, many physically active people will loose the fat of the gluteal areas and find that the projection of the buttocks decreases due to this. It's a catch 22 situation.
Benefits and Risks of Cosmetic Surgery and Plastic Surgery Implants
Benefits: Cosmetic Surgery and Plastic Surgery Implants can be quite rewarding to the person who has peaked from his exercise routine and is unable to achieve further development in certain areas. For those whose genetics prevent the desired development, implants are frequently the only way to add the desired shape and contour. Surgery under these circumstances may produce not only a physical enhancement but an emotional improvement with the achievement of one's goals. Increased confidence in one's appearance and physique frequently leads to further improvements in other areas of life.
Risks: As with all surgical procedures, risks or complications of surgery exist. Modern surgical techniques reduce these risks to a minimum but patients are urged to discuss with their physician the risks and complications of all surgical procedures contemplated. Included in the consultation should be an open, honest discussion of all previous surgeries, steroid use, other medications, and illnesses which the patient may have had, particularly chronic health conditions such as diabetes and HIV.
In order to reduce the incidence of complications, it is important that you select an
experienced Plastic Surgeon that has a proven track record of success with minimal problems.

Silicone implants have been available for more than 60 years. Modern silicone implants used for Body Contouring enhancement are soft, flexible and durable - safe and reliable. Silicone has come under fire since the early 1990's because of the silicone gel used in breast implants which was alleged to have caused autoimmune disease in some women. Highly controlled studies since that period have proven that silicone does not cause disease of any kind. Body Contouring Implants are made of solid silicone - soft but still solid without the controversial characteristics of silicone gel. Solid silicone has never been alleged to cause any disease in the human body.
Plastic Surgery Implants are made of the same silicone that surrounds many cardiac pacemakers.
Most joint replacement parts are made with either solid silicone or coated with silicone to
reduce the body reaction to the replacement part. No problems have ever been attributed to the
silicone of these implants which is identical to the silicone of Plastic Surgery Implants.
