Open incision after Buttock Implants.
It is unlikely that these openings communicate to the deeper tissues or to the implant pocket, but you should see your plastic surgeon to check this out.
Most likely, these will heal without further problems. Keep the area clean with soap and water once or twice a day and apply an antibiotic ointment and cover with a gauze pad.
If the area is moist (and these incisions can become moist due to the location) you can use an alginate dressing to absorb some of the excess moisture and help these heal faster, but you would need the input of your surgeon on this.
Hope this helps!

Keep clean and dry and speak to your surgeon that looks like a minor problem best managed conservatively. A different thing is if the implants are placed outside the muscle, then problems can arise. But if it just superficial,and the muscle well concealing the implant, you should have no problem.
