Pellets are inserted in the upper buttocks through a tiny incision which is made by a licensed medical professional and it is then covered with a steri-strip to ensure proper healing. Local anesthesia is used prior to insertion so that we’re sure you’ll feel almost nothing at all during the brief procedure other than perhaps a little pressure when the pellets are inserted through the trocar. Other than some bruising and possibly some minor discomfort afterward, there are very rarely any complications from this simple procedure. After insertion, we suggest that you avoid strenuous physical activity for 24-48 hours and refrain from swimming or soaking in the bathtub for at least 3-5 days. We are always here as providers if you have any more questions.
