The use of hyaluronic acid in buttock reshaping has been driven by the desire to find a less risky, non-invasive method of buttock reshaping that does not need to be performed under general anaesthetic.

By performing the procedure using a local anaesthetic, there are considerably fewer risks compared to buttock implant surgery.

There are also no incisions made, so there is little risk of scarring, and the downtime is usually minimal.

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers can be dissolved away using Hyaluronidase enzyme injections; instantly reversing the procedure if necessary.

This provides an additional safety net.

Your surgeon will discuss with you the full range of risks at your consultation.
