What Are the Signs of Skin Necrosis After Plastic Surgery?
How do you know when the skin at the incision site is dying? How long should a doctor wait to see if it will 'pink up'? I am a little over 2 weeks out of breast reduction and the skin is jet black in several places and there is also pus present where the skin seems to be separating from the other side of the incision where the vertical scar meets the under the breast scar - where there is the most tension on the skin.
