The most important factors determining the shape (and size) of a buttock implant to be used in any given patient are the dimensions of the native buttock cheeks and the 3-dimensional distribution of the gluteus maximus (largest buttock muscle) and overlying fat. As is the case with the girl in the photo, most women have oval shaped buttock cheeks with a larger distribution of volume in the lower 2/3rds. Hence an oval shape implant would most likely be the case, provided your buttock is similar. Glad to help...RAS

Intramuscular implants can improve volume by 400 cc or so, depending upon the size of the individual. A significant amount above this volume compromises healing by creating more tension on the healing incision.
