Breasts red and warm 10 weeks after augmentation
Thank you for your inquiry about your skin changes after breast augmentation.
Your photo shows marked swelling. You should contact your plastic surgeon immediately to report this to her/him.
I have seen such changes from sun burning recent surgery and for ill-advised use of heating pads but this is a serious change in your condition and requires immediate contact with your surgeon. Best wishes.
Infection after implants?
Your first photo appears to show marked inflammation. I hope you've gotten off the internet and gone to see your surgeon by now.
Infection after implants
Because implants are a foreign body, it is more difficult to clear infections without removing the implants. Redness, swelling, pain and drainage are hallmarks of infection and require immediate treatment which can range from a course of oral antibiotics, IV antibiotics or surgical drainage with antibiotic irrigation with or without implant removal. The literature supports attempts at implant salvage and removal if the infection persists. Smoking or second hand smoke increases the risks.
See your surgeon immediately for redness after breast lift.
Please see your surgeon immediately-do not seek internet advice. Your breasts look seriously inflammed if infection you need emergency treatment.
