Thank you for the question. Based on you description, it does sound like you're leading up to an infection. Visit a board-certified plastic surgeon and
have a full evaluation. Best of luck.
Dr. Michael Omidi.
in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess
your needs and provide true medical advice.
Thank you for your question. What you are describing does sound like it could be an infection. When in doubt always contact your surgeon and go in for a check up. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
Best of luck,

Thank you for your question. If you ever suspect an infection of your implant you need to call your surgeon and be seen right away!
What you are describing sounds like the tell tale signs of an infection. Which is not something to self medicate. Make an appointment to see your surgeon as soon as possible. Best, Dr. Nazarian
You should see your surgeon for evaluation right away. There is a good chance that you could have an infection. Cellulitis or implant infection can occur even months after augmentation. Taking antibiotics should be directed by your doctor.
Breast pain with accompanying fever and redness are all indications you should be checked out ASAP. Your picture could possibly be a sign of cellulitis or an infection in the deeper pocket. Besides seeing a doctor right away to be evaluated, I would not self treat with antibiotics you might have in your medicine cabinet.
Hi & thank you for your question.
.If you have a fever and redness of the breast it is possible that you have an infection. I would contact your surgeon to have the area evaluated.
It is hard to tell from the photo. If you are having fevers, chills, and redness, then it is possible you have an infection. I would recommend seeing your plastic surgeon as soon as possible so they can evaluate the situation. All the best,
Redness and pain may be a sign of a breast infection.
I can't tell much from your photograph but if you have the combination of redness of the skin and pain in the breast and infection is certainly a possibility. This should be reported to your surgeon.
