Contact your surgeon
You should contact your surgeon's office, but if you are otherwise well with no systemic signs of infection you should be fine to go ahead.
Contact your doctor
This would be a decision for your operating surgeon. Contact his or her office and inform your surgeon of all your medications and symptoms. Best wishes.

Scraped knee was/is infected. Can I have breast augmentation surgery tomorrow?
Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well, if your having fever, probably you have an infection, consult your regular doctor so can help you with your condition. If you do not have any symptom you should be able to have surgery safely.
Breast augmentation with infected knee
Thank you for asking about your breast augmentation.
- Your surgeon has to be the one to decide whether or not to operate.
- If you have an active infection, your surgery is likely to be cancelled.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Ok to proceed
Thank you for your question.
It appears the knee is healing alright, have you been running a fever or have any chills? If it is just the wound on the knee and no other symptoms, more than likely your surgeon will proceed with the surgery. Good luck.
You have a surface level problem elsewhere and the photo does not show cellulitis or tissue infection. You should be OK to go ahead with augmentation. But please run this issue with your plastic surgeon so that he can examine you in person before the procedure.
Most likely yes
I am pretty sure you have a localized problem. As long as you have no fever, you should be good to go.

Breast augmentation with an infection
Thank you for your question. It is never a good idea to have breast augmentation surgery with an active infection. You will have a very high risk of infecting your implants or causing other problems (capsular contracture, etc.) You should see your plastic surgeon in person and only he can make the decision of whether or not to operate. The picture doesn't look too bad though; difficult to tell if it is infected or just healing.
