What kind of follow-up care will i need after butt augmentation surgery? Will i need massage and ultrasound after my butt augmentation. Is this common follow-up care? What other things will be suggested that I do after my surgery?
I : I perform butt augmentation with fat transfer techniques, ie brazilian butt lift. I don't usually recommend massage unless you notice an area of firmness. Massage may help in the areas that fat was harvested from to help reduce the swelling, but this is not necessary. If possible it is better if you can sleep on your stomach and avoid sleeping on your back. Avoid slouching and sliding down in your chair when sitting. Otherwise the recovery is not too bad. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hymenectomy: Typically a catheter is not needed. The surgery itself often only requires a small incision at several areas of the hymen. At 2, 6 and 10 the hymen would still be intact but very flexible. Each OB may do things differently so you need to find out more about how the procedure will be done. ...Read more
Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more
