3 weeks after BBL and I fell on the left side of my buttock. Did I damage it?

I fell on some stairs on my left side of my buttock and the left side hurts. I'm wondering if I damaged it. It still feels the same and looks the same it just hurts and I'm worried ?

Unlikely you damaged anything

It's very unlikely you caused any significant damage to your surgical site. Given that you're three weeks out, you may have caused some bruising and swelling, but long-term complications are unlikely.

I appreciate your question. Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time. The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery. Best of luck!
