A 33-year-old woman, standing at 5'1", faced discomfort and pain in her buttocks following three rounds of illegal silicone injections. This distress intensified especially post her first pregnancy, as she noticed an unwelcome enlargement in the region which further caused discomfort while sitting. Eager to remedy this, she approached Dr. Katzen. Upon assessment, he identified the illicit silicone within her muscle, leading him to utilize the open technique for removal. The comprehensive procedure, conducted under general anesthesia, spanned about 4 hours. Following the surgery, her recovery was smooth and free of complications, negating the need for any revisions. The patient now lives free from the prior pain, satisfied with the corrective measures taken.
