Your plastic surgeon should be signed out to another plastic surgeon for coverage.  You should be evaluated for the presence of a hematoma.  CAll you surgeon's office and ask to be referred to a covering surgeon for evaluation.

Don't get your self crazy about the abnormality you have discovered,  A good friend of mine had just had a breast augmentation about a month ago and only two weeks later she found a peculiar lump above her right breast,  Thank God and everyone else...it was nothing! Yay!  I think because of all the million side affects that could possibly happen we  tend to look out for those rather than everything being great?  I guess thats humans for ya?  Btw....In about 4 months I'll be getting the surgery myself.  I sincerely hope everything is as great with you; as you as you planned it to be.!
