BBL: I'm 3 1/2 weeks post op and started noticing this lump/bump that's painless about a week ago. (Photos)

Will this smooth out or go away on its own?

You should schedule a consultation with your surgeon for an examination. A lump can be a number of things including hematoma, seroma, or fat necrosis. Determining what this is requires an examination.

I would recommend an in person consultation with your surgeon. Continue following the post op instructions given by your surgeon.

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well... I will recommend you to consult with your surgeon what's happening, are you having fevers? your buttock hurts? it appears to look ok from your pictures, but I will also suggest you to use your boopy pillow to sit, rest and sleep.

You should be evaluated by your surgeon to determine if it is fat necrosis , hematoma, infections, or what.  Best of luck.

hello. I agree with the recommendation to see your primary surgeon. He is most familiar with the procedure and where the fat was injected.  However. Often there is a superficial area of fat that is hard and will soften over time.  The best course however is to visit with your surgeon

I appreciate your question.

Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!
