I seriously doubt an ER physician will be willing or able to do much for you. You will need a plastic surgeon and you will need to call their office and see which surgeon is willing to help you with your problem.

Hi huynhkhuc, thank you for your excellent question. Congratulations on your recent surgery. Your photos are very helpful, however without the benefit of knowing your full health history and an in person exam it's impossible to say for certain. Your concerns are important to discuss directly with your board certified plastic surgeon.  He or she will appreciate the open communication and will want to help you. It is important that you seek treatment quickly because you do not want to lose your implant to an infection. If you decide to seek a second opinion, consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in person, preferably one who has these credentials: *Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery - the gold star symbol
*A member of the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) - the circle symbol
*A member of the ASAPS (American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) - the Queen Nefertiti symbol with a Triangle  Hope this is helpful and wish you all the very best. Kind regards, Brian Coan, MD, FACS  CARE Plastic Surgery

Need more information but looks like a problem

This is an excellent reason why people should not get surgery in a foreign country and then leave. We have no Idea what procedure was done or what implants used. The infection and or ischemia you have needs to be evaluated by a plastic surgeon and likely an infectious disease doctor. If you are seen in an ER the on call plastic surgeon will see you and in may take you to the operating room to remove implants and obtain cultures and wash out the pockets with a multi antibiotic solution and place a drain. Good Luck!

Breast lift

Thanks for reaching out.  It looks like your nipple is in trouble.  How long ago did it start looking like this?  I would definitely find a plastic surgeon in the area who might be willing to take care of you.  If you are having fever or chills I would go to the emergency room.
I hope this helps :)

2 months post lift/aug

I would for sure follow up with a plastic surgeon in your area.I think it is fine but without an exam it is hard to tell.hopefully you have no fever.The pigmented part outside of your arela may be residual pigment from large areolas pre op.
