Gluteal implants: the "XYZ" intramuscular method.

PMID:  20442105     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Gluteal implants are an effective and predictable way to remodel the buttocks. However, depending on the anatomical plane employed and the manner in which the implant pocket is dissected, the results can be frustrating. The only way to prevent palpable or visible implants (the major causes of a poor result) is through the intramuscular plane. The author presents his XYZ technique, which provides anatomical reference points to guide the intramuscular dissection procedure in a feasible and safe way, resulting in a low complication rate.
