In recent years there has been a significant increase in the number of buttock augmentation procedures being carried out in the UK. The latest statistics show that an average of one procedure is performed every thirty minutes.
In most cases, the procedure is carried out to a high standard leaving the patient happy with the results. Regrettably, there are instances where the surgeon who carries out the procedure uses poor judgement or fails to provide you with the correct level of competence or care, resulting in you suffering from pain and psychological distress.
The surgery is performed by an implant being placed underneath the gluteus maximus muscle. Having performed the procedure, the surgeon will close the incision with adhesives, sutures and surgical tape to ensure it is closed.
There may be a number of complications with buttock implant surgery that can lead to an implant compensation claim. These can include:
- The implant incorrectly placed over the gluteus maximus muscle, instead of underneath it
- Infections as a result of inadequate treatment
- Severe bleeding
- A haematoma may develop
- Nerve damage may occur
- Problems can arise with scar tissue

Frequently asked questions
How can I prove negligence has occurred?
You are owed a duty of care by the treating surgeon and their team both during and after the procedure. In order to prove negligence, it must be shown that the standard of care you received was below the standard expected by a reasonably body of medical opinion, and that this was the cause of the problems you are now experiencing.
The surgeon also has to advise you of the possible complications associated with this procedure and has to obtain your full consent.
