I had a lift almost six weeks ago, and am on my 5th set of stitches, and have been in absolute hell, and crazy pain, has anyone else had there stitches just keep bursting , my boobs are to heavy or my skin is to thin they are not holding, after having another trip to the doctors this nMorning ,crying and barely able to move he decided to not put anymore stitches in and am now walking around with to very large about lit larger than a quarter on both breasts open wounds that are extremely painful ands not to mention very ugly ..my pain is terrible and looks terrible . My skin just keeps tearing open, but dr keeps saying he gonna fix it. And they are so sore . Am going crazy.....missing a lot of work and thinking that the wounds are not gonna heal like the dr said......extremely upset !

Oh I'm so sorry to hear about your open wounds. I agree with the other women; get on antibiotics to avoid infection, see your primary care doctor and get some more opinions as soon as you can. Wondering if you're allergic to the stitches? Here is a link from the RealSelf Doctor Q&A regarding open wounds such as yours. Perhaps this will provide some additional info. My prayers are with you. Keep us posted!

I'm concerned about the Doctor you chose, especially if you only paid $2400 for a lift? Did you get implants too?
