Lump on left buttock
Hot red golf ball lump on left buttock after BBL 1 month ago.
Antibiotics are likely necessary, but will not "cure" an abscess--surgical drainage will be necessary for that. This should be tended to urgently, as in ASAP! Please see your surgeon immediately. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen

Since you have already contacted your personal plastic surgeon and since there is a darker area in the skin, a reasonable assumption would be that you have an abscess. Very often, these present without any fever. If your surgeon does not respond within a couple hours, I highly recommend you go to an emergency room. This may possibly not need emergent treatment, but I wouldn't take the chance.
Please contact your plastic surgeon immediately
What you are showing is abnormal It could represent something potential serious. You should contact your plastic surgeon immediately. Should this be an infection that it needs to be treated as soon as possible. Please contact your surgeon immediately and get this evaluated in person. Best,
