Had buttock implants 2 weeks ago. My drains came off 1 day early. Since I had breast augmentation & lift all done at the same time. My Dr. Recommended I sleep on my back. My wound looks like its either opening or infected. I seen him 2 days ago & he said it was normal. He recommended I keep taking anti-biotics & prescribed 7 days of water pills, so I won't retain water. But I'm really scared. Is this normal?
I Just Had Buttock Implants,do I Have an Infection or is my Wound Open?

Hello and thank you for the question.
In regards to your question, it is difficult to determine your clinical condition or diagnosis without examining you first-hand. My recommendation would be to follow your plastic surgeon's advise, follow-up regularly with your plastic surgeon, and notify him of any untoward signs, such as fever/chills, redness of the overlying skin, worsening pain, or new onset or worsening drainage from the wound.
Best of luck,
