TRONCOSO OLCHEVSKAIA, Ekaterina et al. Normal thickness of gluteus maximus muscle in Chilean women: A guide for buttock augmentation with implants. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2016, vol.68, n.6, pp.427-432. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2016.06.009.

Introduction: Buttock augmentation with implants has become more frecuent in recent years with the emergence of the intramuscular technique, which suggests creating a pocket in the thickness of the gluteus maximus muscle, 3 cm deep. Ethnic differences in the gluteus of Chilean patients, makes measurements necessary to characterize the thickness of the gluteus maximus muscle in our population. Our objective is to know the average thickness of the gluteus maximus muscle in Chilean women. Material and method: A descriptive, retrospective study was designed by measuring the thickness of the gluteal muscle in all abdominal CT scans in prone position, in women aged 18 to 65, from January 1th, to December 31, 2015 at the Clinical Hospital the University of Chile. Association with age, weight, height, body mass index (BMI) and abdominal and gluteal fat thickness of patients was determined. Results: The average thickness of the right gluteal muscle was 3.85 cm (95% CI: 3.76-3.95) and the left gluteal muscle was 3.84 cm (95% CI: 3.75-3.92). There was a positive association between weight and thickness of the muscle, and between BMI and thickness of the muscle, these associations were statistically significant. Discussion: In our population, the thickness of the gluteus maximus is less than described in the literature, pocket in the muscle should be done with caution and shallowest than described.
