I had BBL a year ago, and suffered from sciatica for a very long time. Can a doctor prescribe nerve medicine?

Thank you for your question. I wouldn’t recommend a revision surgery if the first one cause you to develop sciatica. My best advice would be to do glute targeting exercises which will increase the size of the muscle and give your buttocks a larger appearance and that separation between the back of the leg and the buttocks. In regards to the nerve medication, I would consult with your surgeon or primary physician, they may prescribe a nerve pain medication by the name of Gabapentin. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your recovery!
