Improves the size and appearance of the gluteal area (buttocks) by placing silicone implants either under, in between or above the gluteal muscle producing a cosmetic enhancement. Approximately one and a half hours is needed for the procedure, which takes place under general anaesthesia.
The patient must sit as little as possible for the first 72 hours after surgery and should lie on their stomach or stand up most of the time. They can start sitting down but putting their weight on the back of their thighs rather than on their gluteal area. Some doctors may recommend special devices for sitting down for the first 10 to 15 days after surgery.
The patient should wear a tight garment on the gluteal area and should not do any exercise or lift weight for several weeks. The patient should not consume alcohol after surgery. Alcohol consumption may be resumed after three weeks. Bruising and swelling should be gone after several weeks.
Recovery is prolonged because of the requirement of avoiding bending at the waist for a month until adequate healing has occurred.
Revision/Corrective Surgery Cover
All Somnio’s major hospitals in Thailand offer a client guarantee policy to cover revision operations in Thailand should it be deemed necessary by the hospital’s board. If revision surgery is required, as a result from your elective surgery in Thailand, the Hospital Board will offer full or partial contributions towards the cost for the operation (could include: flights, accommodation and surgeon/theatre costs).
In addition to the client guarantee, if flights and accommodation are NOT covered by the hospital for the revision surgery, Somnio offers a Return Travel Warranty, that can be purchased separately, covering you in the unfortunate case that you are required to return to Thailand and the travel portion has not been covered. This warranty will cover flights and accommodation for the duration of stay required by the Hospital board for the surgery.
Additional elective medical coverage is also available through our partners at Global Protective Solutions. GPS provides benefits and services for both travel related accidents / illness as well as a host of benefits in the event of a medical complication that is a result from your elective procedure.
