Breast Aug 2 Weeks Ago and my Incsion is Draining a Creamy Light Red Color. Is It Infected?

16 Days ago I had a breast augmentation. 2 days ago I went to see my surgeon because one of my incisions had been really bothering me and that morning had started leaking fluid. He told me I had a suture abcess and he removed that suture pushed a little fluid out and put two more stitches in pinching my incision together. He said I would not have anymore fluid leak out. However tonight my incision began to leak alot worse. It is a light red semi thick drainage with a yellow tinge. Is it infected

Fluid after breast augmentation

Please see your surgeon immediately.  You may simply have another suture spitting or a more severe infection.

Is my breast augmentation infected

Without an examination it will be difficult for me to give a totally accurate answer. That being said, I would return promptly to your surgeon and have him re-evaluate you. Culture of the fluid, antibiotics, may be necessary. What you are describing could be a deeper problem than originally thought.

Infected wound?

it is difficult to say whether or not you have an infection, a fluid collection, or a minor wound healing problem.  It is best to be evlauated in person by your doctor and followed closely.

Implant Infection

It sounds like an infection. Call your surgeon now as it seems that you need antibiotics and potentially a drainage.
