Is It Ok to Have Redness Around the Incisions After a Breast Lift and Implants?

What should I do? I had my first post open appointment this past Thursday and everything looked good buy this morning I noticed redness around my incisions.

Redness at Incision Site

While a certain amount of redness is to be expected at the incision site, I would advise you to call the office and speak with your surgeon or a nurse to make sure you are healing appropriately.  They may recommend that you come in for a follow up visit to ensure there is no sign of infection.
