Swelling after revisional breast surgery

Hard to make any determination without photos.  If you are having significant swelling, please call your plastic surgeon and make him/her aware of the situation.  It may be something that needs urgent attention.

Swelling/Tenderness after Revisionary Breast Surgery?

No,  I would not describe your situation as “normal”; best to be seen by your plastic surgeon for an in person evaluation.  Online consultants will not be able to provide you with meaningful diagnoses and/or reassurance.

 Best wishes.
