Macrolane ® injections in the buttock


Macrolane ® injection can be performed on patients who want to increase buttock volume or reshape them to correct a morphological default such as flat buttocks, or simply to give them a rounded shape. Macrolane ® is an alternative to implants and allows raising buttock volume without surgery and without scars.

It is a hyaluronic acid gel resulting from biotechnology, completely natural, of non-animal origin and biodegradable.


Before the injection

You don't need to fast. It is however recommended not to drink alcohol and to avoid sun exposure the hours before the injections.

No aspirin-based medication or anti-inflammatory drugs should be taken during 8 days before and 5 days after the injections to minimize risks of bleeding of the treated areas.

For optimal comfort, it is recommended to apply Emla Cream 0.05% (available from a pharmacy) on the treated areas 1 hour before the procedure. This white ointment penetrates quickly into the skin and becomes invisible. This way you can have anaesthesia while continuing your daily activities.


The injection

It is performed under local anaesthesia. The surgeon injects the product between the skin and the muscle, in the natural fold of the buttock through a micro incision leaving no scar.

The injection in painless and the result can be immediately appreciated.
The procedure lasts between 60 and 90 minutes (about 150 cc to 200 cc for each buttock).

You can go back to your daily activities immediately after the injection.


After the injection

Buttock is immediately rounded and curved. The result can be seen and felt.

In order to maintain the result, a retouch injection can be performed every 12 to 18 months (40% of the product usually shades off 12 months after the operation).

Some bruising and a feeling of tightness can appear after the injection, but they disappear in the 4 to 5 days after surgery.
