Hard Painful Breast with Fat Necrosis After Lift - What to Do?
I had a breastlift 3 months ago and experienced necrosis. I lost my nipple but it has grown back with the exception of one side that has a dime size open wound. BUT the entire breast is hard and painful, the wound is being packed with gauze and sterile water/blech-its tracks 4" down and 2" to the side. My certified board plastic surgeon says it is fat necrosis. The wound leaks a yellowish liquid with horrible odor. How long do i continue this treatment or do we need to surgicaly remove this?
