Post-op Buttock Implants

There typically is quite a bit of swelling for 4-6 weeks following buttock implants surgery, however if you are having complications post-operatively and have also lost confidence with your treating surgeon then I recommend finding another one asap that can directly examine you and continue with follow up care.   This procedure is done by only a relatively small group of experienced surgeons so it is extremely important to stick with only an expert in this field.  Best of luck...RAS

Can I Have A Breast Reduction, Augmentation, And Areola Reduction In The Same Surgery?

Photo appears as an acceptable result. Best is to be patient and allow more healing time. This should teach all the people/patients to research your chosen surgeon to correct board status.
