Stitch Abscess?

I had surgery to correct a left breast deformity....

I had surgery to correct a left breast deformity. I had an augmentation and mastopexy of bilateral breasts done. Implant used was silicone, 270cc each breast.

I had augmentation and mastopexy in 2/2009. I had 1 follow-up visit with surgeon who performed surgery. I had to move for my job, so found another surgeon who removed my stitches. She stated she had received my records from my surgeon. All was well until 5/25/2009. On my left breast, outer edge of the areola on the incision line I have had a 1 inch redness with a pustule in the middle. Could this be a stitch abscess?

Yes that is a stitch abcess... I had several after my lift and augmentation. Put a warm compress on it- it will rupture and the stitch will come out. Then treat it with peroxide and neosporin. Keep a close watch on it for infection. Hope that helps!!
