Augmentation/Reconstruction Implants, Muscle, Gluteal
Definition : Muscle augmentation/reconstruction implants designed for augmentation and/or reconstruction of the gluteal muscles (i.e., buttocks). The implants are usually inserted in surgical pockets created in the midline between the existing muscles (i.e., gluteus) during plastic and/or reconstructive surgery. These implants typically consist of precontoured sections of synthetic (typically silicone) or, less frequently, biologic (i.e., autograft, allograft, xenograft) materials that reproduce the desired external shape and/or size of the buttocks. Buttocks implants are intended to improve the physical appearance or to correct abnormalities that are congenital or the result of illness or trauma.
