Is this skin necrosis? Or just needs more time to heal? (photos)

This is not unusual following a mastopexy implant and it will take some time for everything to settle and heal. The crucial thing is that the implant is protected and that you don't develop an infection while the wounds heal. Your PS needs to be aware and advise you accordingly.

Unfortunately the situation you have experienced is not uncommon after Anchor Breast Lifts or Reductions. With time the scar will fade and can be revised when the scar has matured. This separation occurs because the blood supply and tension at the corners of the “T junction”. These wounds contracting where the tissues heal from the outer edges in and are usually just bad luck. Keep following up with a PS near you to be safe. Best wishes.
