I had my surgery 12 days ago and I feel my breast very hot and tender. Like when I breastfed but constantly. I am very tolerant too pain since I had 3 child births with no anesthesia. I can't stand wearing sports bras but I can't go braless because it hurts. I have my breast moistured with collagen and elastin moisturizer too prevent stretch marks. what can I do?

Hot and tender breast 12 days after surgery
Were a patient of mine to call me shortly after surgery with a hot and tender breast I would want to see her that day. Although most times it is not, it may be a sign of a breast implant infection which needs to be addressed promptly.
As a separate issue, and once possible infection has been excluded as a likely diagnosis, your surgeon can prescribe for you a topical anesthetic to relieve the hypersensitivity, which is almost always a temporary problem.
Call your surgeon. Best wishes.
