Signs of Breast augmentation infection on pictures

Breast Implant infection usually demonstrates signs and symptoms that include redness, swelling, fevers, drainage, fatigue, and general ill feeling.

Persistent redness this far after breast augmentation surgery could be the result of an infection and may require hospitalization and IV antibiotics.

In some cases, washout of the pocket and placement of a new implant can spare patients from requiring implant removal. (Ankit Desai, MD, Jacksonville Plastic Surgeon)

Signs of Potential Breast Implant Infection

The classic signs of infection described by a Roman physician and known to every medical student are: Redness, Warmth, Swelling, Pain and Loss of Function. Unfortunately, many breast implant infections do NOT have all of these findings and some infections may not have any of them. It is NOT normal for an augmented breast to be “red on the top and kinda tender (more than the other one) ” one month after surgery.

Such a presentation strongly suggests you MAY have an infection and I suspect your Plastic surgeon knows it. An aggressive broad spectrum, multi-antibiotic course is required and your surgeon may need the help of an Infectious Disease specialist in your management. An unstopped infection could lead to breast deformity and having to remove the implant as well as to capsular contracture, scarring around the implant, formation.

Detecting infection after breast augmentation

It sounds like you may have an infection or a seroma or both. It is relatively uncommon to have redness in your breast, especially asymmetrically, one month after a breast augmentation. You should be seeing your plastic surgeon as he/she can examine you and determine the likely hood of an infection. Oral antibiotics would be your first line choice followed by IV antibiotics, followed by removal and replacement of the implant with a drain. (Remus Repta, MD, Scottsdale Plastic Surgeon)

From what you describe above it sounds like you might have an infection. Your surgeon would be the best judge of the possibility of infection. It’s possible there is just some inflammation from the surgery but time will tell if there is no improvement in your symptoms.

Talk to your surgeon again and discuss your concerns or see breast augmentation infection pictures. (Jeffrey W. Hall, MD, Austin Plastic Surgeon)
