Mastectomy Scars Changed After Tissue Expander Surgery?
Two weeks ago I had tissue expander surgery 2 years after a bilateral mastectomy. My original scars had faded nicely but now they are red and a bit lumpy (in the area that was not cut for the recent surgery). I have 100 ccs of saline. There's no other redness in my skin, nor any swelling. Why would this happen and is it permanent ?
