   There are too many details unknown.  Your surgeon should be able to answer this question.

Post operative care after gluteal implants

I recommend back to work as a dancer about 2-3 weeks post-operative after gluteal implants. As far as dressings, your surgeon will instruct you on this depending on how quickly you are healing. Good luck and take care!
