Pain and redness and tight feeling around new breast implants
After the first few weeks the breast skin should accommodate the new implant and the tight feeling should improve significantly.
However it is important that you are followed closely by your plastic surgeon. If the pinkness or redness increases, you develop a temperature, are you developed burning pain then you should see your plastic surgeon immediately to rule out an infection. Capsular contraction would be extremely unusual this early in your recovery and is very unlikely.
