You should contact your plastic surgeon for answers to these questions. If you have not responded favorably to oral antibiotics, you may wish to ask your surgeon about an infectious disease consultation for intravenous antibiotics.

Possible infection after Breast Augmentation
Unfortunately infection is a rare but possible complication after a breast enlargement like after any kind of surgery.Temperature,redness and discharge are all common signs of infection.Antibiotic therapy ,orally or in more serious cases i.v ,is the right thing to do but if the infection does not resolve quickly implant removal might become necessary. Breast implants are foreign bodies and if they become infected the antibiotic will not work and this is why is important recognize a possible infection and start antibiotic promptly.Hopefully in your case the infection is responding and you will be better soon.Good luckMr Netri
