It sounds like you may have an injury to your sciatic nerve from your fat injections. The pain radiating from your buttock to foot is a classic distribution of the sciatic nerve, which could have been injured at the time of your surgery. These types of injuries are usually temporary, however you should follow up with your plastic surgeon for a complete evaluation.
