To optimize healing of an open wound after butt implants

You need to be very aggressive with conservative measures to ensure that you don't get an infection of your implants. The first measure is to take antibiotics until healing complete; in order to optimize your antibiotics it would be helpful to culture your wound; aggressive dressing changes, I prefer an antibiotic wet to dry dressing again which should be guided by your culture; avoid all physical activity; and protect your wound from contamination.

You should go back to your doctor and have the incision closed.  keep the incision clean to avoid infection and try not to bend and stretch the wound.
