Tiny bumps on lower breast tissue 3 weeks post op, is this normal? (photos)

I am a little over 3 weeks post op from my lift with 400cc silicone implants. I noticed today a small bump that kinda sticks our on the lower part of each breast, slightly above my incision line. Is this just a stage of healing? I hope I didn't mess anything up. I had to lift my toddler twice this week in and out of a grocery cart, she weighs 30lbs. That's the only strenuous type thing I've done though. I thought I was healing well.

Thanks for your inquiry and pictures, it appears you are getting a nice result.  I am unable to advise from your pictures.  I suggest you see your doctor, it could be hives, rash, blisters, etc.  Good Luck.
