“Scab” under Areola after Breast Augmentation/Lifting?
I'm sorry to hear about the complication you are experiencing; most of the time these wounds tend to be superficial and heal with local wound care that may involve topical antibiotics, nonstick/sterile dressings. I would suggest following up with your plastic surgeon and following his/her recommendations, given that he/she knows your situation best and is ultimately responsible for their care.
