In the continuous advancement of non-surgical aesthetic options, ultrasound-guided buttock augmentation with high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA) emerges as an innovative and personalized procedure. The aim of this research was to analyze the ultrasound-guided technique for buttock augmentation with high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, providing a comprehensive view of the technique, from practical application to results and considerations. A series of clinical cases were employed involving patients undergoing this procedure. As a result, all six patients reported a high level of satisfaction. The successful application of HA in patients of various ages emphasizes its versatility and ability to achieve satisfactory non-surgical results. It is concluded that the benefits of buttock augmentation with dermal fillers, including the non-surgical nature and reversibility of results, reflect a preference for minimally invasive interventions. This study provides a comprehensive foundation for informed decisions in non-surgical aesthetic procedures, highlighting the relevance of the proper combination of HA chemical factors in the durability of results.
