infection after breast reduction op?
Congratulations on having undergone the breast reduction procedure. At this point, the most common cause for small wounds like what you describe is a stitch abscess. These small wounds tend to drain and then go on to healonce the stitch "spits". I would suggest that you follow up with your plastic surgeon who will be in the best position to diagnose the cause of your wound and treated appropriately.
