I Have Mastitis After Fat Transfer. How Long Will My Breast Stay Red?

Red after fat transfer
Redness following fat transfer.
Although redness following fat transfer may be related to the normal inflammatory response to the procedure, it is important to rule out the possibility of infection. This requires making a follow up appointment with your surgeon for a proper evaluation.
Call your plastic surgeon
I couldn't agree more with Dr. Khoobehi. If there is an infection going on you should be on antibiotics. At the very least you should be seen as soon as possible to rule out that problem. Good luck.

You need to see your surgeon for evaluation and treatment. Reddness and pain are signs of infection and need treatment. Make sure your surgeon is board certified plastic surgeon and if he/she is not,get second opinion
