I think I may have an infection, what do I do?

It is usually rare to see post-operative infections. However, signs of infection are:

  • Increasing pain
  • Increasing redness
  • Drainage at the wound site which worsens
  • Swelling increases

Normal surgical wounds have a component of the above due to the normal healing response; however, an infection really demonstrates a dramatic increase in the signs listed above. If it really hurts, please call us immediately and/or send us a picture from your phone if worried.
