Bad scarring after breastblift
I hope this helps :)
Thank you for your question and photographs. From the look of your photo’s you may have keloid or hypertrophic scarring. At 3 months post op, your body is still healing and your scars will continue to change over the course of a year. I would recommend either consulting with your original plastic surgeon who performed your surgery or scheduling a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area if you are still unhappy with your scars at a years time, they may be able to give you kenalog injections to induce flattening and fading of the scars or perform a scar revision. I hope this helps!
Best of luck in your recovery!

It appears from the photos that you have hypertrophic scarring. If your incisions are raised, reddened, sore and thickening then you may need treatment with steroid injections. I recommend that you be seen in person either by your Plastic Surgeon or another board certified Plastic Surgeon in your area.
All the best
