Common Risks


There exists a possibility of the surgical areas becoming infected if the surgical instruments are not properly sterilized or if the patient did not clean their wounds as instructed by the surgeon.

An experienced surgeon will place the incisions in discreet locations, but the patient should expect some level of scarring if they are considering buttock enhancement surgery.


Reabsorbed Fat

In the case of buttock enhancement surgery, the body will reabsorb some of the injected fat. This can affect the results of the procedure.

However, this risk can be minimized by working with an experienced surgeon and not putting any pressure on the buttock for two weeks following the surgery.

Using surgical techniques that involve smaller injections in various areas of healthy tissue can also maximize fat absorption. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Wright Jones will choose the most appropriate techniques according to the patient’s needs.


Revision Surgery or Additional Procedures

Most buttock enhancement surgeries are successful. But unexpected situations, complications, or low-quality surgical work may create undesirable results. Such patients may need revision surgery to accomplish their cosmetic goals.


Fluid Accumulation (Seroma)

Fluid can accumulate under the incisions due to damage to cells, tissues, and blood vessels. This can cause painful swelling and increase the chances of infection development. Proper drain and incision care are important to reduce seroma risks.


Excessive Bleeding

The patient may experience excessive bleeding due to improperly sutured incisions, anticoagulant medication, and poor healing. They should not perform aggressive activities in the initial month after the buttock enhancement procedure to minimize their risks for bleeding.


Tissue Necrosis

At times, modifications to the tissue may limit their nutritional and blood supply. This may cause these tissues to die. These damaged cells can cause skin discolorations, stiffness, and irregularities. The patient may require the surgical extraction of dead tissue to correct this problem.


Prolonged Sensation Loss

The patient will feel some degree of numbness in the buttock tissue after the procedure. This is normal, and the sensation usually returns gradually. However, if the nerves are damaged during the procedure, the patient may experience a prolonged or permanent loss of sensation.


Blood Clotting

Incision placement on the skin could lead to blood clotting (hematoma) or even significant blood clots clumping in the legs (thrombosis). These clots can be fatal if they reach the lungs, heart, or brain.
