Should you still feel some tenderness at 5 weeks as you move stretch and sit more? Not soreness.

Incisions have healed. But still a little swelling post seroma drainage.

Soreness can last upto 3 months following buttock implant placement; some patients may also have sensory issues down their leg, related to sciatica pain. All of these symptoms will usually resolve.

You may have some soreness at five weeks after buttock implant placement. If this is new, then I suggest you see your surgeon.
