Bruising and Pain Post Butt Implant Procedure? (photo)

I got butt implants placed under the fascia April 9th. Since then the right implant is higher, significantly firmer, sensitive, and is continuously bruised. Also when I bend over the outline of the implants is very visable. Has anyone experienced this? What could it be? Help!

You should ask your surgeon as he or she is ultimately responsible for your care after surgery.  This question is very difficult to answer without an exam.

Thanks for your question.  You may be forming a capsular contracture or a hard scar around the right implant, which will make it more painful, hard and palpable or visible at the edges.  Make sure you see your surgeon to rule out an infection.  He or she will also have recommendations for encapsulation such as massage or medication.  Placing the implants under the muscle will help also.
