This is an exam;le of wound dehiscence and vascular compromise of the skin/fat of the inferior pole laterally of the breasts. Best to have daily debridements and aggressive local wound care to stimulate the wound to heal by secondary intention and contra cure.

This is skin necrosis. It will take some time to heal and may require debridement or procedures to assist with healing.

Skin Necrosis or Exposed Implant

Your photo is somewhat unclear. It appears that you have either an area of skin necrosis(death) that needs to be debrided(surgically removed) or an exposed implant that needs to be removed. Consult with your surgeon in a timely fashion.  Best wishes on your recovery.
