Gluteal lift

Philippe Levan, Samer Bassilios Habre
Background: Deformities and excess skin resulting from massive weight loss are corrected with circumferential lower body lift (LBL). The gluteal area is frequently flattened due to aggressive skin excision during LBL. Gluteal implants can circumvent this problem. Objectives: We aimed to objectively evaluate the outcomes of gluteal augmentation with implants versus flap surgery performed simultaneously with LBL. Methods: Between January 2014 and June 2015, twenty-seven patients underwent LBL with gluteal implants (10 patients), flaps (14 patients), or no gluteal augmentation (3 patients) in our hospital...

Participation in CrossFit athletics and Olympic-style lifting by the general populace has rapidly increased in the last 10 years. Such athletic engagement poses unique, inadequately defined risks to the participant. We describe the case of a 36-year-old man who presented to an outpatient sports medicine clinic with 6 weeks of numbness and tingling in the lateral right proximal thigh. After thorough examination and electromyographic testing, he was found to have a lateral femoral cutaneous neuropathy caused by performing supine gluteal bridges with a weighted barbell resting across his anterior thighs...

BACKGROUND: Postural development progresses through a series of stages (growth spurts, development of balance and coordination, postural stability) which occur when children are at school age. The reduction in the level of physical activity, increased body weight, overloaded school bags, asymmetry of the backpack straps, the method of putting on and taking off the backpacks and increased usage of electronic devices have negative side effects such as bad body posture habits. METHODS: A prospective cohort study in the group of 155 pupils at early school age 7-9 years old has been conducted...

BACKGROUND: Lateral hip pain during single leg loading, and hip abductor muscle weakness, are associated with gluteal tendinopathy, but it has not been shown how or whether kinematics in single leg stance differ in those with gluteal tendinopathy. PURPOSE: To compare kinematics in preparation for, and during, single leg stance between individuals with and without gluteal tendinopathy, and the effect of hip abductor muscle strength on kinematics. METHODS: Twenty individuals with gluteal tendinopathy and 20 age-matched pain-free controls underwent three-dimensional kinematic analysis of single leg stance and maximum isometric hip abductor strength testing...

Gluteal compartment syndrome (GCS) is a rare condition. We present a case of gluteal muscle strain with hematoma formation, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) superinfection, leading to acute GCS, rhabdomyolysis and acute kidney injury. This combination of diagnoses has not been reported in the literature. A 36-year-old Caucasian male presented with buttock pain, swelling and fever after lifting weights. Gluteal compartment pressure was markedly elevated compared with the contralateral side...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of gluteal suspension with polypropylene strips. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety healthy female patients between the ages of 20 and 50 years (mean, 26 years), who wished to remodel their buttocks from December 2004 to February 2013 were studied retrospectively. All 90 patients were treated with 2 strips of polypropylene on each buttock using the following procedures: 27 (30 %) patients were suspended with polypropylene strips; 63 (70 %) patients were treated with tumescent liposuction in the sacral "V", lower back, supragluteal regions, and flanks to improve buttocks contour (aspirated volume of fat from 350 to 800 cc); 16 (18 %) patients underwent fat grafting in the subcutaneous and intramuscular layers (up to 300 cc in each buttock to increase volume); 5 (6 %) patients received implants to increase volume; and 4 (4...

BACKGROUND: The number of lower body lifts is increasing with the increase in post-bariatric surgery patients. An undesirable result of the lower body lift is elongation of the gluteal cleft. The authors assessed their patients for gluteal cleft elongation to determine predictors of this unfavorable result. METHODS: Lower body lift excision patterns were classified based on their relationship to the gluteal cleft. Type I patterns were superior to the gluteal cleft; type II were central, partially incorporating the superior portion of the cleft; and type III were characterized by the cleft spanning the entire height of the pattern...

OBJECTIVE: Cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, as well as implants, are increasingly being performed. These implants are often encountered on routine imaging examinations, and radiologists are often asked to evaluate for complications or evidence of failure. Pectoral augmentation, gluteal augmentation, body lift and abdominoplasty, and penile and testicular prostheses are reviewed in this article. CONCLUSION: The typical appearance of common cosmetic implants and cosmetic techniques used in the human body is presented, along with the imaging spectrum of their potential complications...

BACKGROUND: Major weight loss causes body deformities. Lower circumferential dermolipectomy with autologous gluteal augmentation by a fat island flap can restore a part of the body contour, but this procedure is associated with a high incidence of complications. The aim of this study was to analyse the benefit/risk ratio and the patients' satisfaction. METHODS: All patients who underwent this procedure at the Nancy University Hospital over a 3-year period (between January 2010 and 2013) were reviewed; the complications were analysed and the patients' satisfaction rated...

Brachial artery flow-mediated vasodilation in exercise-trained (ET) individuals is maintained after a single bout of heavy resistance exercise compared with sedentary individuals. The purpose of this study was to determine whether vasodilation is also maintained in the microcirculation of ET individuals. A total of 51 sedentary and ET individuals underwent gluteal subcutaneous fat biopsy before and after performing a single bout of leg press exercise. Adipose arterioles were cannulated in an organ bath, and vasodilation to acetylcholine was assessed±the endothelial nitric oxide inhibitorl-NG-nitroarginine methyl ester, the cyclooxygenase inhibitor indomethacin, or the hydrogen peroxide scavenger polyethylene glycol catalase...

A 2-position circumferential approach for body contouring of the lower trunk is presented. Mostly indicated in patients after massive weight loss, this approach allows the simultaneous skin resection and reshaping in the abdominal, flank, lateral thigh, back, and gluteal region in the same operation, with only one position change during surgery. Reconstruction of the abdominal wall and gluteal restoration allow volume and shape enhancement with autologous tissue transpositioning. This article explains the required preconditions, assessment of gluteal deformities, and perioperative management of this procedure, and presents common complications...

UNLABELLED: Buttock reshaping has received a lot of attention, although to date there are no anthropometric gender-specific datasets to show the aging of the gluteal region from infancy to old age to guide surgical planning of gender-specific buttock reshaping. To make surgical planning easier, we analyzed the characteristics of the aging buttock in 280 volunteers ranging in age from 15 to 85 years and classified the age characteristics of the gluteal region into gender-specific categories to establish a classification system that could guide surgical techniques needed to reshape and rejuvenate the buttock...

The authors present their minimally invasive gluteopexy technique, using polypropylene 2-0 sutures with 10 absorbable polylactic cones in their distal section (Silhouette Lift, Irvine, California) to improve the anteroposterior projection of the gluteal region. Histological study of the reaction of adipose tissue surrounding the cones previously has shown that, 3 months after insertion of the sutures, fibrous scar tissue is sufficiently developed to resist the weight of the tissues. On the basis of this finding, the authors decided to perform the gluteopexy with sutures, in 2 surgical steps...

Nevus lipomatosis superficialis is a rare, asymptomatic hamartoma of skin. We report 3 adult patients with NLS of Hoffmann - Zurhelle type, 2 males and a female. Two cases showed clinical peculiarities - ulceration or association with ipsilateral gluteal hypertrophy. Reduction buttock lift was performed to improve body contour. In conclusion, nevus lipomatosis superficialis can become symptomatic. Although simple surgical excision leads to a complete cure in the majority of cases, sometimes more complex procedures become necessary...

BACKGROUND: Gluteal enhancement surgery includes buttock implants, gluteal flaps, lipografting, and gluteal lifts. However, no information is available on the outcomes achievable using the gluteal lift combined with subfascial gluteal implants. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed to analyze the outcomes of gluteal lift combined with subfascial gluteal implants performed during a 7-year period by a single surgeon at a single institution. RESULTS: During the study period, 114 patients (228 implants) ages 27-68 years (mean 47 years) were found...
