My Doctors VS Another Dr? 1 Months After BBL.

4 wks after my BBL my left butt cheek got hard, swollen & extremely painful to sit! I can feel a marble size area where it hurts most. I am now 6 wks & pain moved to my inner thigh. I feel sore. I don't have fever. I told my Dr many times about it & he INSISTS its ok. Concered I decided to see another PS & he said area is warm & swollen, possible infection. He pescribed antibiotics & told me to see my PS asap. Advise please? Infection? Necrosis? How r these treated & possible risk if NOT treated

   The pain and hard area may be fat necrosis, but the shifting nature of it suggests possible fluid collection or infection.  This cannot be solved in this forum, and I do think you need an exam by a plastic surgeon familiar with this surgery.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
