Breast Lump after Lift with Augmentation

This is a rather large size for a lump and I would be concerned about a hematoma, walled off seroma, or large area of fat necrosis.    Please have your plastic surgeon evaluate you and work this up.

This could represent tissue necrosis or a hematoma. It could also be fluid. Have your PS check it out.

       In the early postoperative course, a hematoma should be ruled out by your surgeon with an exam.

A photo would help.

This could be a hematoma, a collection of blood in the tissues. A call to your surgeon for evaluation before the weekend is in order. All the best.
