Second Breast Implants, Noticed a Pimple Like Thing on My Scar?

I am worried because I had breast implants saline the first time around, and I developed a leak In my right boob , and my left herby hard, so I had them removed and silicon put in about three months ago. They have seemed fine until the other day I noticed a pimple like thing on my scar (right boob again) and squeezed it and quite a bit of piss come out, since then I have noticed that boob has been more painful and I'm finding painful tender lumps in it.

It sounds like a suture abscess and should be seen by your Plastic Surgeon. Once it is removed then you will no longer have that problem.

An undissolved stitch pushing to the surface is the most likely explanation.  Good idea to contact your surgeon for a look at the situation.  Probably easily remedied by simply removing the stitch if it is still there.

This sounds like you may have a small suture abscess or a "spitting" suture. You should see your surgeon.

Tasha, I would not want to diagnose on line, especially without a photo. But one of the possibilities is an implant infection and that is an urgent problem. Call your surgeon ASAP and make sure to be seen without delay.

All the best.
