All the best,
Incisional pain and redness not getting better 4 months post op!
Actually, I think this degree of redness in a breast lift scar is pretty normal at 4 months post-op, unless, of course, your other scar is significantly different (better). Then I certainly understand your concern. It's just hard to know without additional information.
I would worry less and continue to see your surgeon on a regular basis. You don't want to miss an infected implant, but you also should know that if your implant is infected, it will almost certainly require removal to successfully treat any infection, then another operation to place a new implant. I hope this is not the case, but can't truthfully reassure you or cause you to be concerned. See your surgeon! Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
