Breast crease scar
Surgical incisions are often closed in such a way that results in a little elevation and ridge to the scar initially. Once the suture material that was used to close the incision breaks down and get absorbed the scar starts to flatten. Closing a scar that way allows for less tension at the surface of the skin and will give a nicer scar over time.
Alternatively the crease could be your old breast crease that possibly wasn't excised in the lift or a small "dog ear" which is a pucker that results after closing the incision. These issues should get better over time and the best thing to do at 2 1/2 weeks after surgery is to wait and follow your surgeon's instructions. If they don't get better to your satisfaction then often a minor office revision can be done.
