This is not normal, and should be addressed by your surgeon as soon as possible. Best wishes.

Swelling/Tenderness after Revisionary Breast Surgery?

No,  I would not describe your situation as “normal”; best to be seen by your plastic surgeon for an in person evaluation.  Online consultants will not be able to provide you with meaningful diagnoses and/or reassurance.

 Best wishes.
