Brazilian Butt Lift 9 weeks post op, 1 cheek keeps swelling, even after aspirations & antibiotics. Should I be worried? (photos)

BBL-9 weeks post Op, right side super swollen, inflammation, Dr. keeps giving me antibiotics, he already aspirated 10 thick syringes of unabsorbed fat from my right side,got swollen again, only hurts a lot when I sit down or walk fast, I've been in bed all these 9 weeks, I can't ever sit down. What is it? Should I worry? he said he might take out more, is my butt gonna lose shape or stay the same? Fat was still very fresh n pretty color,didn't smell bad.

It sounds like you are doing the right thing by following closely with your doctor. It sounds like you developed fat necrosis or a seroma by your description. One always worries about an infection. Keep close tabs on this with your doctor. Good luck.
