Could I have an infection? Really itchy and red? (Photo)

I took off the stickers I had on my breast. Tomorrow will be my 8 week mark of getting silicone implants.. However I feel really itchy. could I have an infection? also is it normal that this nipple isn't healed as my other one? you can't really see a scar and on my right nipple you can.

Could I have an infection after my breast lift?

From the picture, it is really hard to say what is going on.  But at this early stage, you should really contact your PS and discuss with him/her your concerns and see what they think.I hope that helps!
