Gluteus ImplantsBy our Fort Lauderdale Plastic Surgeon
No matter your reason for wanting implants, you need to know that your body is in good hands. Dr. Chance Kaplan of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has been a trusted name in plastic and cosmetic surgery since 1987. His compassionate and reassuring nature helps his patients feel confident in their decisions to make changes to improve their appearance.
Gluteus implants is a procedure done on people who wish to improve the appearance of their buttocks. Even after constant and consistent exercise, some may still not be able to achieve the rounded, lifted butt they want, often due to genetics. With the gluteus implants, the buttox will appear fuller, lifted and more rounded.

Your Gluteus Implant Consultation
At your gluteus implant consultation, Dr. Kaplan will ask you important questions about your medical history and your reasons for seeking a gluteus implant. He will examine your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for a gluteus implant.
Come to the appointment prepared to discuss your current medications including over-the-counter medications and supplements. It would be helpful for you to bring your medication bottles with you.
Once you and Dr. Kaplan agree that gluteus implants are a good choice for you, your treatment will be discussed and your surgery will be scheduled. Most surgeries take place right here in our Fort Lauderdale office. You will be given instructions for caring for your body following your surgery as well as prescriptions to reduce discomfort and swelling. Plan ahead so that you will have adequate time to rest while you are healing.
The Gluteus Implant Procedure
During the implant surgery, you will be put under anesthesia for about two hours until the surgery is complete. During the procedure, Dr. Kaplan will implant durable silicone into your buttocks area via a small incision at the butt cheeks or back of the thigh. The implant is placed through this incision either above or below the muscle, depending on the desired outcome.
Following Your Gluteus Implant
After your surgery is complete, most patients will feel tenderness or pain in their buttocks area for about one week after surgery, and it is recommended to rest and avoid any intense movement during your recovery. Most will feel their pain subside after a few days and be able to return to work, but it may take several months for a full recovery.
