16 Days ago I had a breast augmentation. 2 days ago I went to see my surgeon because one of my incisions had been really bothering me and that morning had started leaking fluid. He told me I had a suture abcess and he removed that suture pushed a little fluid out and put two more stitches in pinching my incision together. He said I would not have anymore fluid leak out. However tonight my incision began to leak alot worse. It is a light red semi thick drainage with a yellow tinge. Is it infected

Fluid after breast augmentation
Please see your surgeon immediately. You may simply have another suture spitting or a more severe infection.
Is my breast augmentation infected
Without an examination it will be difficult for me to give a totally accurate answer. That being said, I would return promptly to your surgeon and have him re-evaluate you. Culture of the fluid, antibiotics, may be necessary. What you are describing could be a deeper problem than originally thought.
it is difficult to say whether or not you have an infection, a fluid collection, or a minor wound healing problem. It is best to be evlauated in person by your doctor and followed closely.
