Swelling a week after surgery
- Call your plastic surgeon promptly.
- Swelling a week after surgery can be from doing too much or just taking a hot shower.
- But infections can develop around this time.
- They don't always cause fever, redness and pain right away.
- So - call your surgeon now. Best wishes.
