Swollen breast 4 months post op
Infection around the implant is a serious issue. If it is not dealt with aggresively, the implant may need to be removed. I would advise that you see your surgeon as he or she will want to make sure that this is dealt with appropriately because these things can drag on and on if not treated properly to start with. Good luck. Jonathan Staiano

Return to see your plastic surgeon as soon as possible so that your breasts can be examined by the person who did your surgery. This is not a situation that can be taken care of on the Internet. Best wishes.
