Buttock augmentation by injection of hyaluronic acid Geneva
Buttock augmentation with hyaluronic acid has taken off in recent years. We have more and more requests from patients about this treatment. There are several possible techniques. The injection of hyaluronic acid has many advantages.
With the withdrawal of Macrolane from the market, we had no alternative to offer in the abuttock augmentation by injection of hyaluronic acid to our patients. Hyacorp now offers a very interesting alternative to Macrolane.
It is a non-surgical technique. When a patient does not have enough fat for lipofilling this technique can be proposed. We use the range of Hyacorp products which allow us to adapt to the different needs of our patients. It is an injection treatment in the subcutaneous layers of the buttock. We can therefore adapt precisely to the needs of patients, by injecting the desired amount and treating the contour of the gluteal region in a very personalized manner. The session generally lasts less than an hour. We prepare our patients for maximum comfort during treatment. Local anesthesia is offered. In general we see our patients at 1 month to assess if the result is sufficient. But, we can also do a touch-up at that time.
How long does the effect last? In general, you can expect a stable result for about 18 months. At the end of this period, we review our patents for a touch-up. How are the consequences of the buttock injection? Patients resume their normal lives. We recommend stopping sports activity for two weeks. Pain is very well tolerated, usual painkillers can be prescribed, but often patients do not take it.
When do I see the result ? The result is immediate, we see the patient again after a month for a possible touch-up. What are the risks ? Pains, hematomas, infections are fortunately very rare. In very rare cases, you may have an allergy or a granuloma that requires specific treatment. Is it the same
What are the risks ? Pains, hematomas, infections are fortunately very rare. In very rare cases, you may have an allergy or a granuloma that requires specific treatment.
Is it the same hyaluronic acid that we inject into the face? Hyacorp body contouring are specific hyaluronic acids for the body and not the face. It is a hyaluronic acid whose chemical parameters (cohesiveness and viscosity for example) are not suitable for the face or the tissues are thinner, but perfectly for the body where the epidermis and the subcutaneous tissue are more thick. In addition, the Hyacorp range is available in several products which gives us even more possibilities to adapt to the specific needs of each patient. Indeed, to treat small pits in the buttock, we will use Hyacop body contouring MLF1 and to treat volume, we will rather use Hyacorp body contouring MLF2.
What are the alternatives to this treatment? Lipofilling is an alternative. But for that, you need to have enough fat to take and this is a treatment that requires general anesthesia. Some plastic artists also offer gluteal implants. We do not practice this technique which seems to have a significant rate of complications in the medium and long term.
Can hyaluronic acid be injected into the breasts? It is not advisable to inject hyaluronic acid into the breasts, as this can interfere with the search for pathological lesions, such as cancers. On the other hand, it is entirely possible to offer lipofilling in this indication.
