Risk of Infection

The risk of infection becomes higher if the operating room and surgical venue are not sterilized properly. Infection is possible even when the patient doesn’t clean wounds as instructed. Patients can get in touch with the surgeon immediately if redness or fever persists. Patients should be wary of foul smell and yellow or green drainage during post-operative recovery. It’s crucial they get in touch with a surgeon immediately.

Risk of Unfavorable Scarring

Scarring in case of butt enhancement cosmetic surgery is generally discreet. Small incisions will be placed by an experienced surgeon for inserting the implants in the buttock region. However, in case the surgeon has no experience with the procedure, large incisions may be placed in indiscreet locations, leading to unfavorable scarring.

Risk of Implant Dislocation

Butt implants can migrate from the desired position to another position in rare cases. Patients should make sure they don’t put pressure on the buttock area for at least 2 weeks following the procedure. They should wear compression garments as well at all times.

Risk of Seroma

Fluid buildup may take place beneath the incision. This will result in painful swelling and an increase in the risk of infection. Proper placement of drainage tubes and incision care can minimize the risk of seroma. Patients should get in touch with a surgeon for suctioning out accumulated serous fluid if they suffer from seroma post-surgery.

Risk of Excessive Bleeding

Sometimes, wound may bleed excessively if the incisions are not sutured properly or the patient takes anticoagulant medications. Patients should minimize the risk of bleeding by refraining from vigorous activities following the surgery.

Risk of Tissue Necrosis
