Tissue Necrosis After Breast Reconstruction. I Would Rather Be Flat Than Look Like This? (photo)
I had skin sparing bilat mast, breast recon with TEs. 1 week later had reaction to surgical tape. PS said remove tape. I did so and discovered tissue necrosis along vertical incisions on both breasts and large black area at bottom of right breast. PS cut away the necrotic tissue at bottom of right breast leaving a large, gaping hole. Was told to apply wet dry dressing. I'm worried about scarring and would like to know how this is going to be fixed. TEs appear to have been overfilled to me.
