Redness and itching after breast augmentation

Thank you for your question. Redness and itching one month after breast augmentation is abnormal.  This could indicate a fungal infection. You must consult with your surgeon regarding this issue. Best wishes in your recovery !

Is this much itching and redness normal?

Thank you for your question. Itchiness can be normal with healing. Is the redness from itching the skin? Redness is not normal during the healing process at 4 weeks. 
Please seek further assessment from your surgeon,
