Scarring is an unavoidable thing that happens after all invasive operations. When incisions are made on the body, they will ultimately develop into scars. Buttock augmentation surgery involves incisions and inserting and placing the implants inside the buttocks. The incisions ultimately develop into scars. The scars develop as your body’s internal healing system works to heal the incisions. It produces collagen that causes the scars to develop and close the wound. In most cases of buttock augmentation, the scars are normal. The incisions heal and the scars develop, after which the scars gradually fade and become less visible. Normally, it takes many years for the scars to fade. However, patients should keep in mind that the scars will not fully disappear. They will remain with you forever. One of the risks associated with butt augmentation surgery is that the post-surgical scars may become abnormal. An abnormal scar can develop in the form of a keloid or hypertonic scar. These scars, especially the keloid scar, look aesthetically unpleasant. It is raised, swollen, and highly visible. There are different reasons why abnormal scarring may happen. First, some patients have a genetic predisposition to developing abnormal scars. Their body may generate more collagen to heal the incisions, which can cause abnormal scarring. Surgical errors and carelessness can also lead to the development of abnormal scars. If the surgeon is inexperienced or if the patient engages in physically strenuous activities during the recovery period, abnormal scarring is more likely to happen. Moreover, if you are a smoker and not willing to stop smoking before the surgery and during the recovery, you are more at risk of abnormal scarring. Abnormal scars look aesthetically unwelcoming. The scars can develop any time after buttock augmentation surgery. When abnormal scarring happens, it is extremely difficult to treat. As a result, the patient may experience self-esteem issues. You can avoid abnormal scarring by sharing your complete medical history with the doctor, being careful during the recovery period, following the surgeon’s instructions, stopping smoking, and wearing the compression garments during recovery. During the pre-operative consultation, be certain to discuss with the surgeon how likely you are to develop abnormal scars and how to reduce the risk.
