Fluid accumulation following breast augmentation

It is difficult to give you advice without knowing how long your breast implants have been in and without having performed a physical exam.  Fluid accumulation can occur around implants and may not necessarily be associated with an infection.  Check back with your surgeon and have them assess your situation.  They may want to do further tests on the fluid and/or place a drain around the implant.
