4.5 weeks post-op BBL - if I take off my compression garment I swell up, is this normal?

I appreciate your question.

Yes, swelling can last for several months.  Please stay in close contact with your surgeon and follow his/her post op instructions.

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!

BBL and swelling

Yes, swelling is normal after a BBL. It can take several months for the swelling to settle down. Best of luck.
