I have a black scab coming off at the bottom of my breast, but the skin underneath doesn't look so good?

You did not mention what type of breast surgery you had.  A black scab is usually indicative of skin that did not get enough blood supply and did not survive.  I would suggest that you contact your plastic surgeon and discuss the problem with him/her so that he/she can determine the best course of action for you.
