I have a golf ball sized lump in my right buttock. What's causing it?

I had a bbl on March 22. About a week about I felt a golf ball sized lump in my right cheek. And my butt is extra sensitive when I sit. I had surgery a little over 3 months ago. The lump is not visual but can be felt.

Buttock lump

Greetings. This is something you should have your surgeon evaluate.  There can be some lumps that develop but if things are worsening, seek medical attention and evaluation with your surgeon.  Best wishes.

Buttock lump

Thank you for your question. I would first recommend that you talk to your surgeon regarding this concern. It is very possible that this is an area of fat necrosis or dead fat. This can occur after fat grafting. Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Golf ball lumps

Some firmness or lumpiness can't happen after fat transfer.

Especially high-volume fat transfer such as Brazilians.
Please follow up with your plastic surgeon who can help evaluate what this may represent.
