Buttock Implant Removal? (photo)

Hello. I had buttock implants removed about 2 years ago and I'm left with this unsightly asymmetrical buttocks enlarged buttocks that looks as if I still have implants and it feels slightly hard in the area which leads me to believe there is scar tissue. Any suggestions on what can be done to correct this? I just want to look normal again.

Buttock Implant Removal?


     Fluid collection or scar tissue or both would be reasonable conclusions to be drawn from your description and photos.  The buttocks can probably be returned to a more symmetric pair with the right surgery.                                                                                                                            Kenneth Hughes, MD                                                                                                                                           Los Angeles, CA

Asymmetry after buttock implants removal


It very likely you have some consequential scar tissue build up +/- fluid accumulation (aka seroma).  If you have not already, I recommend you return to your original surgeon for an exam and treatment recommendations.  If s/he is no longer available then seek consult with another board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in buttock implants.  Glad to help...
