Buttock Filler / Augmentation is useful for contouring and volumizing the buttock area. It is achieved by injecting hyaluronic acid into the area to plump and enhance the shape. The body reabsorbs it in approximately 2-4 years. The procedure can also smooth visible cellulite dents but is not as dramatic as butt implants or fat transfer surgery. Buttock filler may also target ‘hip dips’ and create a fuller and rounder shape. This treatment offers all the benefits of the well-known BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) with a fraction of the risk. Buttock augmentation is pain-free, and we will always ensure our clients are comfortable throughout. We also prescribe antibiotics as a precaution to reduce the risk of infection due to the treatment area.

What is Buttock Filler / Gluteal Augmentation ?
Gluteal augmentation using VARIOFILL filler, sourced from Germany, stands as a highly sought-after cosmetic enhancement in today’s beauty landscape. This innovative procedure involves the strategic injection of a filler material into the buttocks, aiming to modify their shape and volume significantly. The choice of VARIOFILL filler is noteworthy due to its approval by the Thai FDA and its adherence to the rigorous European CE safety standards, offering a reliable and safe approach to achieving a more voluptuous and aesthetically pleasing buttock contour without resorting to surgical methods.
Understanding the Buttocks Muscles Before Buttock Filler or Gluteal Augmentation:
The gluteal region, primarily composed of the rectus abdominis, external oblique, internal oblique, and transverse abdominis muscles, plays a pivotal role in bodily movement and posture. These muscles facilitate the transfer of force during bodily motions and contribute to the upright posture of the torso. Additionally, they act as protective agents for the spinal column and aid in respiratory functions. A well-exercised gluteal region not only enhances physical appearance but also strengthens the core, reduces abdominal fat, and minimizes the risk of injury, making it an essential aspect of overall health and well-being.
Gluteal Filler or Buttock Filler : What Is It?
Gluteal filler injections employ hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that mimics naturally occurring compounds in the human body, to reshape and volumize the buttocks. This method is favored for its simplicity, convenience, and non-surgical nature, enabling individuals to achieve their desired buttock shape with minimal recovery time and immediate results.
Benefits of Buttock Filler:
The application of filler for buttock enhancement comes with numerous advantages, including the ability to tailor the buttock’s shape and volume according to individual preferences, increased self-confidence, minimal risk of complications, biodegradability of the filler material, potential for future adjustments, and resilience against physical pressures. Moreover, the procedure is characterized by its safety, as evidenced by the Thai FDA approval, absence of general anesthesia, minimal fibrosis risk, and the immediate visibility of results.
Who Is Suitable for Buttock Filler Injection?
Ideal candidates for gluteal filler injections are those seeking to add dimension to their buttocks or alter their shape without undergoing surgical procedures. It is crucial for individuals to be in good health and free from allergies to filler materials. However, the suitability for this treatment ultimately depends on a thorough assessment by a qualified medical professional.
Precautions and Safety of Buttock Filler:
Gluteal filler injections are considered safe when performed by skilled practitioners. Variofill, the only HA filler approved by the Thai FDA for buttock augmentation, is produced by HYABELL FILLER, a German company renowned for its high-quality, premium-grade products. Its widespread recognition and adoption across over 60 countries attest to its efficacy and safety.
Injection Design and Amount Needed:
The design and quantity of filler required for each individual vary based on their original buttock shape, desired outcome, and body structure. A detailed consultation with a medical expert is essential to determine the appropriate treatment plan, which may involve injecting anywhere from 10 to 30 cc of filler per buttock, depending on the case specifics.

Possible Side Effects:
While generally safe, gluteal filler injections can lead to temporary side effects such as bruising, swelling, or discomfort at the injection site. These symptoms are usually mild and subside on their own. However, persistent or unusual symptoms should be promptly addressed by a healthcare professional.
Combining Filler with Other Procedures:
It is possible to combine gluteal filler injections with other cosmetic procedures, such as collagen-stimulating treatments to reduce the appearance of stretch marks or pre-treatment fat reduction techniques, to achieve more comprehensive aesthetic results.
Variofill Buttock Filler:
Variofill stands out as a high-concentration (33 mg/ml) HA filler, specially designed for the dynamic and pressure-bearing areas of the buttocks, ensuring natural-looking and durable results.
Longevity of Results:
The effects of gluteal filler injections are typically visible within two weeks to a month post-treatment and can last up to two years, depending on individual factors such as health and lifestyle.
Choosing Between Butt Injections and Butt Augmentation:
The decision between opting for butt injections and surgical augmentation is highly personal and depends on the individual’s aesthetic goals, the current state of their buttocks, and their general health. Butt injections, which involve the administration of filler beneath the skin to augment the fat layer, offer an immediate enhancement in the firmness and volume of the buttocks. This method may necessitate periodic sessions to maintain the desired appearance. In contrast, butt augmentation through surgery offers a more permanent solution by physically altering the buttocks’ structure, albeit with a significant recovery period.
Filler Injection vs. Fat Injection and Silicone Implant Surgery:
Filler injections are distinct from fat injections, as the latter utilizes the patient’s own fat, requiring a considerable amount for extraction and re-injection. This process is more invasive, involving anesthesia and a longer recovery period. Filler injections, on the other hand, use a biocompatible synthetic substance, allowing for precise volume enhancement with minimal downtime. Compared to silicone implant surgery, a more invasive procedure with higher infection risks and a substantial recovery timeframe, filler injections provide a safer, less intrusive alternative for buttock enhancement.
In summary, gluteal filler injections offer a viable, non-surgical alternative for individuals desiring a more voluptuous buttock appearance. With the advantages of safety, minimal downtime, and the ability for natural biodegradation, this treatment method has garnered widespread popularity. Selecting an experienced practitioner is paramount to achieving optimal results and minimizing potential risks.
