Breast Reduction and Redish/Purple Discoloration?
Thank you for the question.
It is not possible to give you good advice without direct physical examination; your plastic surgeon should be the person you turn to with these questions/concerns. Most likely, at this stage in your recovery your description fits with venous congestion, suture related problems, wound healing problems, and/or infection.
Again, follow up with your plastic surgeon for good advice/treatment.
Breast reduction and skin issues
From your description it sound like you have some healing issues perhaps? or maybe infection? Hard to say without an exam.
