  • Rafael Vergara
  • Mauricio Marcos


The authors present a new space for the placement of gluteal implants in augmentation gluteoplasty. Placement of implants in this intramuscular anatomical space offers a good cosmetic result and seems to satisfy the demands of augmentation gluteoplasty in terms of safety, reproducibility, and esthetics.
