Bilateral thigh lift made my butt look flat HELP!

Q:

I had a bilateral lateral thigh lift done and doc went around waist line to my back. He pulled my butt up which made it flat (I had a very pronounced bottom before) and this also caused my butt crack to elongate past the top of my underwear.  Is this going to drop some or require a revision? I am so upset that my bottom looks flat now and my crack goes to my waist line

A:

 I am so sorry to hear about your unfavorable outcome. First, address your issues and concerns with your surgeon. Ask what their plan of action is going to be. They may require you to wait at least 4 to 6 months following your surgery before any further intervention. This is considered normal and certainly acceptable. Use this time to obtain a second options regarding correction of your concerns. Ask your surgeon for copy's of your History & Physical, Operative Reports and Pre-Operative Pictures. Then, consider a consult with one of the many members of the ASAPS in your area. Best,
