Lump on Butt after BBL

Hello and Great Question.  I appreciate the time you are spending researching this procedure.  My name is Dr. Matthew J. Nykiel.  I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, a Fellowship Trained Cosmetic Surgeon, and a Butt Augmentation Specialist.
First, I think you should speak with your surgeon.  He/she can advise you the best.  This is likely swelling/firmness after fat grafting.   Best of Luck!  Please reach out if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks for your question and photo.  Please contact your plastic surgeon's office for an examination.  It's difficult to assess by just looking at the pic.  Best of luck.

Healing after BBL

Thanks for your question and photo. As the swelling goes down after surgery, you may notice some irregularities. You should see your PS as it is difficult to assess what is going on without an in person evaluation. Best of luck, Dr. Kludt

Lump after Brazilian

You need to follow up in person with your plastic surgeon.
It's not possible to tell what this lump represents without an examination.This could represent fat necrosis, and an oil cyst, an infection, a fluid collection or something else.Please call your plastic surgeon and make an appointment for a follow up.
