I would try to email or call the surgeon.  Surgeons want to know about potential problems.

Too early to judge on the final result. You are still at the healing stage. The area in your lower back will be still bruised and swollen and this will take 8-12 weeks to settle. Wear your garment and keep your follow up with your surgeon.  You have to give your body at least 12 weeks to start seeing results and final results can take 3-6 months depending the way your body heals.

Best Of Luck!!

It is common to have swelling after BBL.  But, I would recommend contacting your surgeon to evaluate your healing process and discuss any concerns. Good luck.

Thank you for your question.

It is important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions seeing as they know exactly what they performed during surgery and exactly what you should do for optimal results post op. Swelling occurs in all patients after a BBL and will begin to resolve over the next 6-8 weeks. You may benefit from performing daily lymphatic massages. If you have some discomfort, swelling or want to accelerate your recovery process, you may want to do some daily light massages starting about a week after surgery twice a day. I would definitely recommend wearing your body garment until your surgeon tells you otherwise, to reduce swelling and have the best results possible.

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well... If you're feeling fevers or pain it will be better to consult with your surgeon, have a CVC and see what's happening.. Swollen is normal, but if you have pain get to your doctor.
