REVIEW
Robert F Centeno
Massive weight loss patients and aesthetic patients can present with significant gluteal contour abnormalities. Gluteal ptosis, skeletal deformities, severe platypgia, and a paucity of donor fat for autologous transfer are common problems. Excisional procedures are used to treat massive-weight-loss contour abnormalities. These procedures present an opportunity to address severe gluteal deformities using autologous tissue augmentation. With a working knowledge of the relevant anatomy, sound surgical technique, and meticulous postoperative care, autologous gluteal autoaugmentation with circumferential body lift/excisional buttock lift using the "Moustache" flap technique will enhance massive weight loss body contouring outcomes and improve patient satisfaction...

Postbariatric, cosmetic, and circumferential body lift patients seek to avoid a flattened buttock contour. Gluteal implants have been described with various rates of complications and difficulties. Lipografting moderately increases buttock volume; neither procedure directly addresses ptosis. The procedure described in this article addresses the volume deficit and ptosis. Most adipocutaneous flaps originate within the superior gluteal region and maintain volume in the top half of the buttocks, lacking the ability to reach the midportion of the buttocks...

REVIEW

The ideal patient for purse-string gluteoplasty has buttock deflation and ptosis, and wishes to improve projection. Key elements of the procedure are buttock lifting combined with auto-augmentation, no undermining of auto-augmentation tissue, and use of a purse-string suture to enhance projection of auto-augmentation tissue. Purse-string gluteoplasty is a safe and effective technique to correct buttock ptosis and atrophy.

REVIEW
Lázaro Cárdenas-Camarena, Héctor Durán
Buttock enlargement with lipoinjection is a procedure that has had a very high demand in the last 5 years. Changes in aesthetics have made more patients request greater volume in their buttocks and hips. The procedure requires not only liposuction, in which the fat is obtained, but also a systematization off the fat injection process in the buttock to obtain the appropriate aesthetic results according to the characteristics of each patient. The procedure achieves very satisfactory results because it can transform the patient's physical appearance significantly...

REVIEW

Gluteal augmentation has gained popularity. It might be the only option to increase volume for lean patients without donor tissue for grafting. Subfascial augmentation is a safe treatment with low morbidity when performed in an appropriate setting with the right equipment. It is an anatomically based procedure. It is very important that pocket dissection is limited to the anatomic landmarks. Implants should be placed vertically to allow for proper contouring. The wound should never be closed with tension. One of the most important steps is postoperative care, which should avoid any pressure on the buttocks and stress on the wound...

REVIEW
Raul Gonzalez, Ricardo Gonzalez
Although interest in buttocks implant procedures is growing around the world, it remains a technically demanding procedure. The intramuscular plane is thought to be superior to other planes of dissection. Asymmetry and visibility of the implants remain frequent complications when the surgeon works without any reference points to guide the procedure. The XYZ method helps the surgeon to obtain symmetry, to significantly reduce implant visibility and to decrease other complications associated with buttocks implants...

REVIEW
Paulo Miranda Godoy, Alexandre Mendonça Munhoz
This article presents an overview of intramuscular gluteal augmentation involving primary and secondary augmentation with implants. Although gluteal augmentation is a well-studied procedure, few reports have described the intramuscular technique or this technique in association with lipofilling. This article presents experience with a combined technique; this recent innovation combines placement of an anatomic silicone gel implant underneath the gluteus maximus and immediate fat grafting. Primary and secondary gluteal augmentations using implants resulted in satisfactory outcomes...

REVIEW
Jorge E Hidalgo
Submuscular gluteal augmentation is a very valid plane for buttocks implantation, even more so in North America, where surgeons can only use silicone elastomer implants. Irrespective of how soft elastomer implants are made, they are much firmer than the silicone gel implants that can be used in other countries. A deeper plane with more soft tissue coverage provides more natural results, as long as the anatomic boundaries are respected. Proper patient and implant selection is the key factor for satisfactory gluteal contours and outcomes...

Gluteal augmentation is rapidly gaining in popularity and this is driving aesthetic surgeons to gain experience and develop techniques to meet patient expectations. Currently, the 2 main techniques - gluteal fat grafting and gluteal implant for augmentation have significant limitations. Autologous fat grafting seems to have a mortality rate significantly higher than other aesthetic procedures. Implant based gluteal augmentation is equally difficult. This is a broad review of all the complications associated with both types and autologous gluteal augmentation...

REVIEW
Dries Opsomer, Koenraad van Landuyt
Autologous breast reconstruction can be challenging in mastectomy patients who are not eligible for a deep inferior epigastric artery perforator flap reconstruction. Depending on body habitus, alternative donor sites for free flap transfer can be found on the back, the thighs, and in the gluteal area. These alternative flaps can demand a higher level of expertise, which should be mastered by the modern day reconstructive microsurgeon. The flap choice should be tailored individually to each patient and should not be limited by the difficulty of the surgery...

This article describes the use of implant-enhanced and total-autologous latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flaps in breast reconstruction. It addresses the indications for use of this reconstruction alternative, which have recently been expanded thanks to the advent of high-volume fat grafting. Given its straightforward dissection, reliable vascular pedicle, variety of approaches, and potential for excellent aesthetic results, use of latissimus dorsi flaps may be considered among first-line options in selected patients...

The authors document their experience in the use of synthetic 100% bioresorbable surgical mesh (TIGR Matrix, Novus Scientific, Uppsala, Sweden) in breast reconstruction as well as in breast aesthetic surgery. They performed a retrospective review on patients who underwent implant-based breast reconstruction as well as patients who underwent breast reduction mammoplasty procedures with the use of TIGR Matrix Surgical Mesh. When compared with other synthetic but nonresorbable meshes, it appears to show a potentially lower seroma and infection rates, but most importantly, a lower rate of revisional and mesh explantation surgeries...

REVIEW
Michael R Zenn
The advent of acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) has changed the way implant reconstruction is performed and has opened the door to muscle-sparing techniques that can be performed as an NSM (nipple-sparing mastectomy) with DTI (direct to implant) with excellent cosmesis and less patient morbidity. The article discusses differences in types of ADMs and outlines some current strategies and controversies with ADM use.
