Breast lift and implants - could I be infected?
- Naturally you are worried and your surgeon will want to see you.
- If you have an infection, the earlier it is treated the better so you should be seen without delay.

Obviously, an in person examination would give you a much more accurate answer to your question. However, most often, these breakdowns and minimal fluid release is due to tension on the suture line and rarely due to infection.
That being said, your personal plastic surgeon knows exactly what he or she did, and therefore I would not wait until Monday to discuss it with your plastic surgeon because if bacteria is present, it doubles in number every 20 minutes. Therefore, waiting 24 hours may lead to a complication you don't want to have.
