I have two very large deep dents on each buttock due to injections. How can I get rid of them? (Photo)

Vaccination and other medication injections can give soft tissue loss and secondary dents.
I must say that most injections in the buttocks are normally performed in the UPPER and OUTER quadrant of the buttocks so important nerve and blood vessels are avoided. Dents can be improved temporarily with #DermalFillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Voluma, Emervel, etc. or better, with your own #fat as with #FatGrafting aka #FatTransfer.
Now when I see your pictures, it does remind me also of the common cellulite and it is lower than most buttock injections. I see this almost every day in my busy offices in Toronto and Richmond Hill, Canada.
Cellulite is a different issue. It is an intradermal tethering. You may well have a combination of both as cellulite is very common over the buttocks in ladies.
I treat the severe cellulitic indentations the same way the Brazilians do: with subcision (small incision and release of the tethered bands) and then I allow some bruising to occur and then secondary internal scarring. This often improve the deep dent significantly. One it is 'subcised' and released, I often add either some fillers or better, some fat grafting.
Unfortunately, we have not yet found the perfect laser to correct cellulite, hence the high number of different technologies on the market.
Hope this helps!
