While a slightly elevated temperature is normal after any type of surgery (during the initial healing stage), if it becomes a fever and is associated with increasing pain and persistent redness, it might be a sign of infection.

Good luck and best wishes.
Post Op Elevated Temperature
All the best
Thank you for your question. Based on your description I recommend contacting your plastic surgeon immediately. Having both a temperature and a hot to touch breast is worrisome for an infection. Hopefully it is nothing but an in office follow up is warranted.

Thank you for your question. A low grade temperature for the first 48 hours post surgery is appropriate, as can the feeling of warmth. My advice is to communicate directly with your surgeon with these concerns. Best of luck!
