You appear to have a nice postop result in regards to shape and size. If the extra swelling of your stretch marks is the 'rippling' to which you are referring, then do not worry about it as it is very normal and will resolve with time. The redness along the inferior pole of your breasts may be related to a vascular blush reaction to the undermining of the skin in this area during surgery, which is normal, but it could also have an infectious component. If this is the case, which your surgeon will need to determine, antibiotics and a skin care regimen should be instituted.
So make sure your surgeon is being kept up to date on your progress and any changes in your skin.
