Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello..I was looking into getting butt injections prefer the hydrogel. I was seeing if you do this…thank you.
A: Any type of synthetic filler injections into the buttocks I do not do. None of these injectable buttock augmentation materials are FDA-approved nor, quite frankly, should they be done. There are neither safe or indicated for this type of cosmetic procedure and they have never been formally evaluated by an FDA regulatory process. Thus these are ‘black market’ treatment procedures and are what we as plastic surgeons consider to be both illegal and unethical to be done. The only safe and approved injectable buttock procedure is fat injections. This is done by using your own fat acquired by liposuction, concentrated and then immediately re-injected into the buttocks.
