BBL After Silicone injections

Thanks for your question, and i'm really sorry to hear about someone in DR would even dare to inject silicone. I have seen a couple of cases like yours and the results after trying to perform a BBL in a place where Silicone its already been injected its not good, we can never now where the silicone is and performing a BBL will have a big risks of deformities. 

I would recommend you, only to reshape your buttocks by liposuction on the frame, without injecting anything at all.

Best of Luck,

BBL in someone who had silicone injections

If you had free silicone injections into your buttock, you have a lifetime risk of complications related to the silicone. Placing fat into the buttocks at this point may exacerbate that risk.
