Painful, swollen breast 9 days after lift with implants
Thank you for asking about your breast lift with implants.
Please contact your surgeon without delay and arrange to be seen. Swelling and pain on one side after a lift with implants is an infection until proved otherwise.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Swelling after BA
I recommend giving your surgeon a call. He/she can evaluate you. Some swelling is normal, but a large amount of swelling can indicate a hematoma that needs to be addressed.
