The buttock augmentation surgery
The gluteoplasty requires careful evaluation because we have to evaluate the anthropometry of this area since the morphology is given individually by the insertion of the gluteus maximus and available hip bone. If you require a small increase scientific papers are showing good results with autogenous fat infiltration. However if you require a larger increase is better contemplate getting a gluteal prosthesis. In no case should one resort to injections of other substances such as biopolymers, hyaluronic acid or any other, due to the fact that these are described as having many complications and rejections.
