Thanks for posting your query.

After operative procedure some swelling and redness is common due to inflammation from tissue handling.

If it is more and persist , it might be a sign of some infection.I would suggest getting this evaluated by your surgeon for detailed examination and appropriate management.

Wishing you good health.
