Fat Necrosis after Fat Grafting
Fat necrosis can occur after fat grafting to the buttock if the grafts are not spread evenly over the treated area or too many grafts are placed in an attempt to make a very large buttock. If it is painful to sit, I would recommend removal though it would mean a scar placed on your buttock. Time may soften the area as well so it is not unreasonable to wait before addressing. It just depends on how much pain you are in. I recommend you discuss further with your surgeon. Best of luck .
